Infants & Toddlers: Parent-Child Therapy

I specialize in conducting parent-child therapy with young children (0 to 5 years old) and their parents in order to assist with parenting difficulties and to treat psychologically-based childhood disorders that manifest in disruptive behavior, emotional disturbance, and impaired parent-child attachment.  I focus on helping parents to understand themselves and their children, and I train them to become “expert parents.”

My services address the following treatment goals:

  • Improved parent-child relationship and attachment security
  • Improved ability to manage emotional states
  • Improved self-regulation (patterns of eating, sleeping, state transitions)
  • Decreased anxiety (separation anxiety, school phobia, excessive worry, and obsessive-compulsive disorder)
  • Improved mood
  • Increased compliance with adults
  • Decreased disruptive, aggressive or dangerous
  • Improved social skills
  • Decreased risk of child abuse or neglect
  • Facilitation of optimal child development
