Is your child/teen having social emotional difficulties? They may have a hard time making or keeping friends, or they may not understand, or are unable to manage their own emotions. You may notice that they do well in school, but come home and have meltdowns over the smallest thing. Their focus on academics isn’t the only thing that they have to worry about during school; friendships, social interactions, and understanding of social cues may become overwhelming for some individuals and can easily send him/her into tailspin. Symptoms may include anxiety, irritability, inability to focus, and a variety of other uncomfortable feelings.

During therapy your child/teen will have the opportunity to learn more about their own emotions and how to manage them. They may also start feeling more confident in the social world. With mindfulness, changing negative thought patterns, and social emotional skill building, your child will start feeling better and making more connections at school or camp!

I work with children, teens, and young adults who are struggling with social emotional difficulties. My experience includes working with individuals with ASD, ADHD, anxiety, anger, and depression. For more information about my services you can visit my website, or call me to see if I’m a good match for your family. I look forward to hearing from you!

¿Su hijo / hija está teniendo dificultades socialmente? ¿Tienen problemas para entender las señales sociales, la comunicación no verbal o simplemente están ansiosos por interactuar con otros? Usted está estresado como padre porque son increíblemente brillantes, pero su falta de conciencia social o su ansiedad social les impide hacer amigos, participar en situaciones sociales y / o perseguir sus objetivos.

Imagine que su hijo / hija se relacion con otros con mayor facilidad y / o siente menos ansiedad por relacionarse con otros en la escuela y en la comunidad. Con una combinación de entrenamiento en habilidades sociales y estrategias de afrontamiento, su niño, adolescente o joven puede comenzar a sentirse más cómodo y seguro al interactuar con otros.

Sé lo difícil que puede ser encontrar tiempo durante el día, así que estoy disponible noches y los fines de semana para ayudar a su familia. Para obtener más información sobre mis servicios, puede visitar mi pagina web o llamarme para una cita.
