CHILD & FAMILY COUNSELING
At each stage of a child’s development, new challenges create struggle that ignites new abilities. Child-centered developmental therapies provide children with the support they need to build and strengthen these skills to promote growth. Counseling services are designed to help parents understand normal developmental cycles, respond effectively to their children’s struggles, and improve communication between all members of the family.
Biofeedback is a type of therapy that teaches children skills to reduce stress responses, improve overall emotional regulation and balance their nervous system.
How can biofeedback help my child?
- Understand how the mind and body interact.
- Synchronize the mind and body to find balance (homeostasis).
- Regulate emotional responses to feel better.
