Family Member Quote
“Both my children have been seen by Georgette. She also takes time to set up a weekly appointment to talk to me to check if there’s anything important to work with them. My son has been with her since a very early age. Now he is a teen, and she has been amazing with all his transitions between schools and personal life. My daughter has major social anxiety, and with Georgette’s help, she has been able to succeed at school and going out with friends. Georgette goes above and beyond to help them in any way possible.”

Does your child seem to have more tantrums and fears than other young children their age? Or has the teacher shared that your preschooler or kindergartener appears to be struggling and not making friends? Maybe your child has gone through something scary, and now you can’t leave the room without them clinging to you. Perhaps you have welcomed a baby to the family, and bonding has been challenging. Or the relationship between you and your child is not what you had imagined it would be, and you seem to always end up in a power struggle. Or you’d like to work on the relationship with your autistic child.
Being a young child isn’t always easy. Neither is being their parent. Many people feel they’re failing at parenting, but the answer isn’t to try to be a carbon copy of the perfect parent described in the parenting books. You can be an authentic, responsive version of yourself as a parent to your particular child. I can help you and your child work through the concerns that typically present during early childhood (feeding, sleeping, tantrums, bonding difficulties, power struggles, social skills, concentration) so you and your child can have the relationship you want.
