Specialized communication skills are available from decades of research in a treatment called Parent -Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT).
When children argue, tantrum, cry easily, or yell it can be stressful for the whole family. As parents, we can feel overwhelmed or worried about the future. If our child has experienced a trauma, we can be heartbroken and at a loss for how to help them heal. Sometimes we wonder if our child’s issues are our fault, or why our relationship isn’t as warm and supportive as we imagined. We can even be upset by our own anger with our child. Our children can feel like they “aren’t good” at getting along, or they can be confused about their own emotions. As a family, we may not be able to do things we want to like going out to restaurants.

Our unique approach to working with children is illustrated by our parenting website and an e-book we've published called "The Time", available for download on our website.
I have been in the profession of helping people for 36 years. It is my approach to treat the whole person not just the symptoms. In that regard we begin a process that resolves not only the symptoms they present to me, but returns to them the feeling of being alive and in command of their own lives in a fashion that allows them to have healthy relationships, function well in their jobs and work, and have a positive sense of themselves.
