The main reason why I became a therapist and life coach was because as a school teacher I came in contact with a lot of children and adolescents who had issues that weren't being addressed properly. I made a commitment and took it upon myself to help children and teens so that they could become happy, confident, independent, self-sufficient members of society. I will help you and your family members get through uncertain and difficult times successfully by working with your child on developing better coping skills, communication skills, more positive behaviors, enhanced self-esteem and different ways to overcome life's adversities.

Small children aged 3 to 8 typically do not participate in family therapy because the vast majority of therapists consider such children too young to articulate their feelings or understand complex patterns of behavior.
Tool Box for Life and Relational Skills When clients graduate from treatment, they take with them a box full of "tools", such as effective anger management techniques, avoiding confrontations that lead to negative expressions of anger, resolving conflict peacefully and quietly, making the right decisions in every aspect of life, and perseverance to always build skills against life's problems and apply them consistently. Skill development is relational. No one lives in isolation; everyone maintains many types of relationships. Treatment provides chances to improve all relationships by communicating effectively, listening without making assumptions, and avoiding miscommunication that brings on anger and/or conflict.

Frustrated of being told to "relax", "calm down", "you are too sensitive", "grow up" & "get over it already, or "you worry to much"? People tell you this as if you do not want to relax, stop overthinking, overreact and worry! If you could, you would! Being told this from friends and loved ones does not help. In fact, it can cause you to feel much worse! You probably have tried to stop on your own, but your mind continues to fill up with thoughts that cause you to become stressed and you struggle to turn your brain off! You are not alone! I get it and can absolutely relate! This why I am so dedicated in helping people find relief!

Family Therapy
If you're looking for family therapy in Boca Raton or for a Boca Raton family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in Boca Raton using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counseling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
