As a parent, are you stressed out, overwhelmed, depressed, fearful, or confused about your child’s behavior. You might be asking yourself, “is my child’s behavior enough of a problem to be evaluated by a professional.”
Every child experiences emotional difficulties at times such as adults do. Many children experience difficult feelings as the result of normal changes due to their growth and development. During stages of their growth from early childhood through their adolescense, children struggle to identify their own identity. Sometimes a child experiences changes in their behavior due to loss of a loved one, moving to a new location, or a new child. These types of changes, in many cases, tend to go away on their own.
However, some behaviors that are viewed as problematic include aggressive behavior (fighting, kicking, yelling, breaking objects), drug and alcohol use, deceit and violation of rules, theft, truancy, to name a few. When these type of behaviors are occurring, it is typically best to have your child evaluated by a professional.
You are not alone. Almost a third of children born will have some type of disability by the time they are 18. Through counseling, I will join with you and your child in the process of moving from frustration, anxiety, and hopelessness to having a clear plan for creating a happier and better life!
