Our focus is on helping children develop positive responses to difficult situations. Caregiver's must help reinforce these responses in day-to-day life. Our clinicians will carefully select the appropriate approach for both you and your child.
Most often used with children ages three to 12 years, play therapy is a way of being with the child that honors their unique developmental level and looks for ways of helping in the "language" of the child.
Family therapy involves multiple family members attending sessions together to work on improving family functioning.
The demands of modern-day parenting can compromise parents or caregivers' ability to provide primary needs such as empathy, support, safety, and structure in a child's life.
Using scientifically-rigorous tools and methods, we develop an individualized assessment for your child to form the basis of a targeted treatment plan.
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy
Developed for children ages two to seven, PCIT is considered the gold-standard to treating disruptive behaviors and strengthening the parent-child relationship.
We All Want The Best For Our Children
You want to provide the tools your child needs to succeed and to handle the challenges that come along the way. You knew parenting wasn't an easy feat, yet there only seems to be days where you get swallowed by the crying, the hitting and the breakdowns.
Other times, you light up when you see your child excel and relish in the sweet moments, and think maybe this is just a phase.
You tried implementing changes that you read in parenting books, yet the results haven't been consistent, or maybe your child started acting out even more.
Whether you are a parent seeking support for disruptive behaviors in your toddler or young child, observing signs of anxiety in your adolescent, or recently experienced a change in your family system, The Child and Family Connection is here to help you understand your child's overall functioning, and offer accessible solutions for the entire family to create lasting change.
Why The Child and Family Connection
We are a group practice made up of highly trained clinicians with advanced degrees and specialities, and deliver only evidence-based treatment plans.
We don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, but rather use multiple modalities and solutions-oriented treatment plans suited to the unique needs of you and your child.
We will often work with your child's primary care doctor, teacher, school counselor and psychiatrist to treat not just the symptoms but the underlying causes to guarantee long term outcomes.
Meaningful changes will not happen overnight. We will guide your family through the entire therapeutic process and help you and your family grow the skills needed to work towards your desired goals.
