Announcement icon We are now offering Tele-therapy for both parenting support and play therapy for ADHD treatment, counseling for Aspergers and Gifted kids!
It's as if you are walking on egg shells every single day. Your child is controlling, bossy, stubborn and strong-willed. You've given up on 'my way or the high way' because the tantrums are just no longer worth it. Your son or daughter has ADHD, Aspergers, or is Gifted. You need help. You are looking for answers and solutions- and need immediate support to get back in charge. Some days it is absolutely exhausting- and other days it is so easy! There's the battles, the refusing to wear certain clothes, picky eating, not doing chores, not listening, not doing homework, acting out and the list goes on.
We focus on teaching about the brain to help you regain control at home. You will learn why children with certain diagnoses react the way they do and how to combat common frustrations. Your child will learn to express themselves, tame their anger, increase confidence, and will begin to listen. We work together to create a calmer home so everyone's' happy.
If your son or daughter is ages 3-13 and you are looking for immediate solutions that involve coordinating with other providers, and school (classroom observations for preschool or Kindergarten) then request an appointment today. We offer social skills groups for ages 4-13, individual services, parenting intensives and classroom observations!

Michelle M. Tolison's Groups

Ages 4-7: Therapeutic Play Group

You wonder if this is typical, if other kids do the same. Your little one just doesn't seem as social as the other kids. It feels like they already have no friends. They play alone, or right next to another child, but they never interact. Or maybe, your child seems bossy. They are hitting, pushing, biting, it's a mess. You feel like they might get kicked out of preschool- or they already have been. You want a play group that can teach them to play nice and be nice.
