About

Being a parent is hard. We want our children to succeed in all areas of their lives, but sometimes we find ourselves dealing with difficult behaviors, such as defiance, tantrums, and meltdowns. We watch them struggle at home, at school, and with other kids. We talk to our friends, try a range of strategies, and still feel lost when all the traditional approaches don't help. That's why our experienced therapists are so glad that we can offer Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), an extremely effective evidence-based treatment designed to help you connect with your child and reduce behavior problems and distress in 3-4 months.
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an evidence-based treatment for children ages 2-7 years old that significantly improves parent-child relationships and decreases disruptive behavior. 40+ years of clinical research supports what PCIT Therapists already know: children improve quickly, these gains are maintained over time, and these gains also happen in school settings and with siblings.
PCIT Experts is a specialty clinic committed to providing Gold-Standard Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) to families across the United States. Our PCIT Experts are highly skilled, highly trained PCIT therapists who have been certified by PCIT International. Our goal is to ensure that your family receives the best quality of treatment needed to address your child’s specific behaviors and concerns. Before the pandemic, PCIT was usually done in an in-person clinic setting. However, when we started doing virtual PCIT through a teletherapy model, we learned that it actually worked BETTER: children's behaviors improved more quickly because we were coaching them in their own home, where natural behaviors happen, instead of in a sterile clinical setting. PCIT Experts therapists understand how hard parenting a strong-willed or neurological-diverse child can be. Many of us are parents too and we proudly use the same techniques at home with our own children.
