Many times a parent or guardian will contact me about helping their child with behavioral concerns. For the most part, what can be expected in this situation is that I will want the parent/s or guardian/s to take part in the sessions as well. With children, they are highly influenced by the systems they are a part of. The family system is the most important one. What I often find is that increased communication and understanding of behaviors is imperative for change to happen. 

I suggest family work based on my assessment of the presenting concerns. Sometimes, I will want some individual sessions in addition to working with the family. I let you guide my decisions in this area as I respect that each family and person is unique and complex.
