A Child's Earliest Relationships are Their Most Important Relationships
We are dedicated to promoting the social and emotional well-being of infants, toddlers, and families within the context of secure and nurturing relationships.
Sometimes things happen that cause a rupture or interruption to a child's sense of security in their relationships. Perhaps your child has been through a scary event such as an accident, a natural disaster, the loss of a loved one, a serious medical procedure, or they have witnessed violence in their home or community. Or perhaps your child experienced separation from their primary caregivers due to premature birth, parental illness or addiction or for a host of other reasons.
Young children do not typically communicate effectively through words. They communicate the unspeakable through their play and their behavior and they do not know the reasons why they behave the way that they do. If your child is struggling and expressing big emotions through their difficult behavior, or if they are withdrawn or otherwise seem off and you are struggling to understand what is happening, you and your child may benefit from Child-Parent Psychotherapy.
