Do you need help and support managing your child behaviors at home? Does your child display physical aggression ( anger, hit, throw things, destroying properties, tantrums), has a hard time with changes ( divorce, new school, loss of a loved one) , or reports physical complaints such as ( headache, stomach) ? Does your child display isolation, sadness, nightmare, fearfulness?

Being a parent can be though, challenging , yet rewarding. Therapy can helpful for children. Children can benefit from therapy by learning how to manage their anxiety and depressive moods, getting necessary support from a neutral adult, develop problem solving skills, learn social skills behaviors ( how to be a friend, how to share, ways to be kind, maintaining friendship) , manage stress such as ( being bullied at school, family illness) , and so on.
