The SECRET to Understanding Children’s Behavior

Dealing with an anxious, very sensitive, intense child or teen who regularly has meltdowns or lashes out is exhausting.

Whether there is a divorce happening, or your child just seems to have this kind of personality, do you ever think, “Is this normal?” or “What am I doing wrong?”

Do you ever feel embarrassed, frustrated or guilty?

The truth is, the way young children or teens act tells us something about how they feel inside, but it’s not easy to figure out what the real issue is.

It’s crucial to learn to decipher the message behind your child or teen’s moodiness and acting out in order to truly help them and fix things.

And that’s exactly what we work on in our practice.

We’ve tried everything and nothing seems to work.

Parents and kids are over-scheduled and overworked, affecting everyone’s ability to deal with feelings and making everyone more stressed out and anxious.

As parents, we research every parenting technique.

Rewards and consequences don’t truly work. Even if you think the consequences are working, do you know how they’re affecting your child’s development?

We try giving choices, offering alternatives, breathing and relaxation exercises, reassuring our kids and staying calm and patient, but this isn’t always successful either.

How We Can Help

The Center for Child Counseling works to figure out what’s behind your child’s or teen’s mood or behavior. This is what is needed for true, deep and long-lasting change.

You’ll learn how to address a situation or prevent it.

Your child or teen will play or talk out their worries and practice dealing with their emotions in a calm, fun space. This builds their self-esteem and confidence and ultimately improves their mood and behaviors.

Why choose us? Because we don’t try to be everything to everyone.

Our Mission is to help you have Confident, Emotionally Strong Children or Teenagers and a Better Parent-Child Relationship.

We specialize in helping children,teens and their parents through divorce, child behavior problems, anxiety and big emotions.

We have the expertise and training to work with parents & infants, toddlers, preschoolers, grade school age children through teenagers. We specialize in helping all kids birth – 17 years old.

We go beyond the surface of the problem to locate and deal with the root cause of it. This is what brings truly meaningful, long lasting personality and behavior change.

This is very worth it because it’s not just a temporary band aid solution to “manage” behavior that will likely have to be readdressed again in the future.

Choosing to work on the real issues will help set your child on a healthy path to become an adult without deep rooted anxieties.

The Center for Child Counseling is the culmination of our work with hundreds of parents and children over the past 20-plus years. We welcome talking with you, please schedule a no-obligation FREE consultation call with our founder, Dr. Denise Duval Tsioles, PhD, LCSW today.

I just wanted to send you a quick and overdue note about our teenage daughter’s sessions. We came into this process very weary of therapy and just burned out on counseling in general. To my great surprise, you have completely redeemed the process and I cannot say enough good things about our experience. Our therapist has a very impressive way of getting into difficult subjects, and generates positive energy. I’m extremely grateful for all that she has done for our teen and my family. You have come through for us!

-SC, father of a teenage girl

The therapist we worked with was absolutely amazing with my 6-year-old child. My child grew to trust her and they truly connected. Through this trust and connection, the therapist was able to get to the root of the issue and we were able to resolve the issue. Your staff truly cared for my daughter’s well-being and proved to be a great support to me as well. This work will serve my child through her life.

-LC, mother of a 6-year-old girl

I was very glad to have found your practice to help our son identify and work through some anxiety issues he was experiencing. My son had an instant connection with the therapist and looked forward to his sessions with her. We saw immediate progress and gained a better understanding of what might be going on in his little mind. The therapist was excellent at giving us insight into our son’s feelings and behavior. I also appreciated that she gave us detailed feedback on our son’s sessions and was available to answer our many questions.
