ANXIETY & BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS
Not all individuals are “wired” the same. Some float through the world seemingly impervious to the stressors of life, but others do not. Many children or young adults experience stress or anxiety on such a high level that their academic, social, or psychological functioning is affected. These often bright and deeply emotional individuals can exhibit problem behaviors because they lack the skills needed to cope in a world that overwhelms them. I work with sensitive children/young adults (and their parents) to help them learn the pros and cons of experiencing deep feelings. Additionally, I teach them ways to communicate better with others and to cope more independently when they experience distress.
