There was a theory about 100 years ago that children were just miniature adults. Watching a child play and explore the world around them proves that they're not. Kids learn how to behave from their role models; parents, siblings, extended family and friends. When a child is in distress they let you know by acting out that distress. Let's get to the root of the behavior and rebuild your home to one of peace and fun for your little one.

Sometimes kids, like adults, can benefit from therapy. Therapy can help kids develop problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. Therapists can help kids and families cope with stress and a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. Many kids need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need help to discuss their feelings about family issues, particularly if there's a major transition, such as a divorce, move, or serious illness. Significant life events — such as the death of a family member, friend, or pet; — can cause stress that might lead to problems with behavior, mood, sleep, and appetite.
