Youth Connection is an intensive program for those individuals who suffer from addiction, but are also faced with the challenges of young adulthood. Teenagers and young adults, 18 – 25 years of age, who suffer from drug or alcohol addiction often find themselves dealing with additional pressures. They may have trouble with their workload at school, associate with delinquent peers, suffer from a lack parental supervision, or just generally exhibit feelings of inadequacy, poor self-image, or even depression. They have not learned the necessary skills that would otherwise enable them to cope with everyday life situations.

Children act out on how they feel; if they are having behavioral issues, it is usually because there is something off-kilter with them, or with their situation. If you are able to identify the cause, many times the behavior will significantly subside. Thus, it pays to explore, with the child, what they are experiencing and what might be causing them to feel stressed.

I see children from the age of four years and up, many of whom are referred for behavioral and emotional difficulties such as frequent and long-lasting tantrums, poor emotional regulation, defiance, physical aggression toward parents or siblings, and/or high degrees of anxiety. In these situations I meet with the child and his or her parent(s), so that I can see the interactions and better discern whether this is a strictly behavioral or a developmental problem. Treatment options may include parent coaching, family counseling, individual counseling (for older kids), referral for psychological or neurological testing, and referral to a developmental pediatrician, among others.

Our approach to helping and counseling young children is focused on establishing positive rapport and trust. We accomplish this through validation of a child's feelings and emotions. We also believe in creating a very warm and caring environment, and work through the use of art and music to make a child feel comfortable. Counseling children requires time and patience, as each child is unique. Most importantly, we work closely with parents, as change is families occurs in a system, requiring all family members to work together on change.
