I have successfully taught children as early as those in Program Head Start, before becoming a Texas Teacher & School Counselor, and ultimately a LPC-Supervisor . As a child advocate who tries to understand the needs of the child in hopes of helping with mental or emotional turmoil. One may say or think that I specialize in treating children? This would be false, because I can't recall a situation where I could help the child without helping the parents, and even the whole family. Family history and dynamics plays a "Huge" role in your child's development and behaviors.

Honestly, I don't like to use the word "Specialty". To me it limits or narrows ones skills and talents a person has been trained to give to their general public. Mental and Behavioral health is a profession which covers a broad spectrum of issues and approaches one may take.
