"While I love working with women in their 20's and 30's, I am also VERY passionate about working with adolescents and their families! This is such a crucial time in our brain's development, and my goal in therapy is to assist my client's and their parents in learning how to manage the complexities of this dynamic period of life. Teenage years are a time of rapid growth and desire for autonomy. This can be very disruptive to the family system without the proper tools to manage the overwhelming emotions that adolescence is infamously known for, and unfortuantely some teens turn to unhelpful coping tools to avoid discomfort and stress.

Developmental Disorders Therapists
'Developmental disorder' is the collective term used to describe the disorders, first diagnosed in a child's infancy or early childhood, which then become more apparent as the kids develop during their childhood and into their teens and adolescence. Like all labels, it means little and is open to interpretation.

The developmental disorders are categorized in to two areas: specific developmental disorders, which affect discrete parts of a kid's development, and the pervasive disorders (e.g. PDD Los Angeles), which affect multiple developmental basics. The specific developmental disorders include communication disorders, speech and language issues, such as stuttering or lisps in Los Angeles; learning disorders; and motor function or motor skills disorders, which may include tics or Tourette's in Los Angeles.

The pervasive developmental disorders (PDDs) include autism, asperger's, attention-deficit and disruptive behavior disorders.

There are other issues that can affect childhood development, which are included in the developmental disorders--such as feeding and eating disorders, elimination disorders, separation anxiety disorder, and reactive attachment disorder.

Look here for help with children, kids or teens with developmental disorders in Los Angeles or Los Angeles developmental issues. Try a Los Angeles child therapist, Los Angeles facility or Los Angeles treatment program. These therapists provide help with kids' developmental issues in Los Angeles, child development, teen development and adolescent development. They include developmental therapists in Los Angeles, developmental psychologists, developmental counseling and treatment for developmental disorders. They'll also help with problem teens development in Los Angeles, teenagers development problems in Los Angeles, Los Angeles teenage development and teenager developmental issues.
