As a parent, there's nothing worse than watching your child struggle. Standing by and watching their grades fall and their anxiety rise is excruciating, but nothing you've tried is making the situation better. Your child doesn't seem to know what's due or when, they are unorganized, have no plan for studying, lack effective study habits and skills, and have trouble disengaging from their phones. Communication is breaking down between you and your child and they seem unmotivated and apathetic toward school. You may also be questioning if your child is just being a typical moody teenager or if it's more serious. Are they depressed?

Are you nervous, having panic attacks, shortness of breath, or maybe your heart is racing and you can't explain it; it could potentially be anxiety. Maybe for lack of better coping skills you have increased your use of alcohol or drugs. Maybe your family is telling you you are addicted to or abusing alcohol or drugs, but you don't know what else to do. Some people don't understand what is happening to their body and are fearful of where to go or how to get help.

Here for the "I DON'T KNOW's." So many patients & their families come into my office and say, "I just don't know what's going on with me/my loved one." And for me, that's a great place to start! It's my job, using assessments and up-to-date testing equipment to answer that question. I feel that it is difficult to know HOW to treat something if you don't know WHAT you are treating. Mental Health diagnoses often overlap and are confusing. Testing and therapy helps answer the "I don't know's". I do ALL of my own testing to limit errors and provide extremely comprehensive services for you and your loved ones.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Alpharetta provide help with child development and child education.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed well by a well-trained provider, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time (likely in fewer than six sessions), the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Alpharetta build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also sees the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciate the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
