During the course of the treatment, Preeti will support you and your child in navigating stressors and developing positive outcomes.
For children struggling with anxiety, caregivers may notice that their child will begin to engage in activities rather than avoid tasks, they will implement strategies to reduce physiological discomfort that arises from anxiety and change worried thoughts to more realistic and helpful thoughts.
When emotional dysregulation is addressed, caregivers may notice reduced emotional outbursts at home and in other settings along with improved communication. Preeti is also skilled at working alongside parents by coaching them with parenting techniques to support their child’s overall development, repairing ruptures in their relationships, and improve communication within their family leading to harmony in their home.
