"It takes a lot to pick up that phone and call and make an appointment to see a Therapist. Whether a person(s) is in crisis, suffering a loss, feeling depressed or anxious or alone, or struggling with addiction, help is hard to ask for. The questions people ask are: will I be judged, will I be understood, will I be helped? With 22 years of experience as a therapist, I am here to not judge. I am here to understand and to help sort through life's problems."

"Life stress? Relationship stress? Anxiety? Depression? There are various reasons why people choose to enter therapy. For some, the choice to see a therapist emerges slowly as they recognize their ability to function in life is either not where they want it to be or is deteriorating. Their coping mechanisms begin to breakdown as they become overwhelmed with negative emotions. Others may seek therapy from a more positive place and might be more interested in self-exploration."

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 Smithtown), which affect multiple developmental basics. The specific developmental disorders include communication disorders, speech and language issues, such as stuttering or lisps in Smithtown; learning disorders; and motor function or motor skills disorders, which may include tics or Tourette's in Smithtown.

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 Smithtown or Smithtown developmental issues.
