Parent Child Interaction Therapy
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is a treatment program for children with disruptive behaviors that focuses on changing interaction patterns and improving the quality of the relationship.
Through PCIT sessions, a therapist observes the parent-child interaction from behind a one-way mirror and provides guidance through a hearing device. Parents are taught specific skills to establish or strengthen a nurturing and secure relationship with their child while encouraging prosocial behavior and discouraging negative behavior.
Prenatal and Postpartum Depression and Anxiety
The birth of a baby is a major life event, typically accompanied by strong emotions from elations to despair. These normal Baby Blues are exacerbated by the hormonal shifts and exhaustion that accompany the postpartum period.
True Postpartum Depression—unlike the normal short-lived period of sadness—is more severe and persistent. PPD can occur at any time in the first 12 months after giving birth and affects your ability to care for yourself and makes it harder to care for your new baby.
From increased academic demands to busier schedules filled with sports and social obligations, our children are feeling the increased amounts of stress in their daily lives. Yoga is an affective treatment for stress management in children and can assist with developing focus, self-regulation skills, mood, and behavior problems.
While increasing self-awareness, control, and respect for their bodies, yoga also provides children with a way to improve their self-esteem and confidence.
Our Cognitive Training program combines traditional one-on-one therapy with technology. These brain-training activities and applications provide cognitive behavioral conditioning and skill building.
Cognitive Training is beneficial to individuals who have difficulties with attention and executive functioning, as well as for those who have endured a traumatic brain injury, stroke, or other serious illness or trauma. It can improve memory, focus, problem-solving skills, and personal interactions. It can also help improve judgement, impulse control, general academics, abstract reasoning, and language.
A variety of Group Therapy sessions serving various ages and topics are offered throughout the year. Each is designed to promote skill building and collaboration with peers. Group Therapy is beneficial as an adjunct to individual therapy or as a stand alone therapy. For more information about current and future groups, please contact our office.
