Child Behavioral Issues

Is your child out of control? Does it feel like no matter what you try as a parent, nothing seems to change?  If so, it may be time to seek professional help.  Our therapists are trained to work both with children and parents to make coordinated efforts in reducing problematic behavior.  Therapist can work with children to help them learn to regulate their emotions, find alternative outlets, and help them learn to communicate in new ways to constructively convey their needs to others.  At the same time, clinicians work with parents to discuss how to put the optimal structure in place, including how best to implement rewards and punishments, finding new ways to help their child feel validated and praised, and avoiding common parenting pitfalls.


Common behavioral issues include:

  • Not cooperating at school
  • Temper tantrums
  • Aggressive behavior toward family/classmates
  • Refusing to partake in family activities
  • Persistent lying
  • Withdrawing from others
  • Manipulating siblings/classmates/adults
  • Disrupting family routines, such as means, bedtime, and bath time
