How would you describe your child emotionally? Shy? Hypersensitive? Angry and out of control? Do they have trouble dealing with stress or change?
When kids have trouble focusing, staying calm, and engaging in social activities, there’s always an underlying issue that’s causing the distress. Kids are especially sensitive to their environments, and if there’s any stress or tension at home they tend to pick up on it. If a parent is going through a stressful situation such as losing a job, or struggling with an illness, or dealing with anxiety or depression, it’s most likely going to affect their children on a neurobiological level.
As a nervous system specialist my focus is on helping kids feel calmer, happier, and more focused WITHOUT the use of medication. Kids have a strong capacity to heal – it’s my job to help them find it, and use it so they can set themselves up for a long, healthy, fulfilled life.
