Parents bring their young children or adolescents to see me for counselling when they are having severe conflicts with them, when they see that their kids are struggling with school-work or with peer relationships, and when their children are experiencing psychological distress such as anxiety, depression, or difficulty adjusting to change. In all my work, I include the parents as partners in the treatment process.

I teach parents how to be the primary "therapists" for their children. Although children will sometimes need their own individual counseling, there are times when parents can apply interventions at home that will help children behave better, have fewer tantrums, perform better in school, sleep better, overcome certain fears and phobias, have higher self-esteem and so on. My book "Raise Your Kids without Raising Your Voice" has helped thousands of parents learn techniques to bring out the best in their kids and themselves. In counseling, I address individual challenges that children have and design specific interventions.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child? Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-606-6161.

I focus more on adults and teenagers than children, but I have worked often with parents who are feeling overwhelmed by their responsibilities. Of course, the parents who are most overwhelmed tend to be those with autistic children and I have worked closely with adults and children in the autistic spectrum. Studies have shown that autistic children very often reflect the stress their parents are feeling.

No matter the origin of a child's difficulties, the most effective way to work them out is in the parent-child relationship. I work with infants and young children whose behavioural difficulties have arisen due to adoption, early neglect or abuse, family separation, developmental or health issues, and other stressful events. Underneath a child's self-defeating behaviour is a child who wants and needs a secure attachment with their caregivers. Within this secure connection children develop self control, empathy for others and more focused attention at school. In therapy, I will help you (one or more caregivers) apply principles of attachment to strengthen your parent-child relationship.
