Lisa Marie Carlson, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Skokie
When your child or teen is struggling with friends, challenging behaviors, disorganization, poor grades, or attention issues, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) helps. Sometimes kids/teens are "angels" at school, but don't listen to parents at home. You and I will work together to give your child/teen effective strategies, so you no longer need me. Once kids learn coping skills, they gain confidence and life-skills to succeed academically, socially, and throughout their life. Parents are my partners, so you will learn the skills addressed in our sessions, so progress continues between sessions and long after treatment ends.
Working as a school social worker for many years, I understand the social, academic, and behavioral challenges kids/teens face. Also, kids can act very differently at school vs. home. Having the right tools and feeling empowered are keys to success. Call or email today for a free phone consultation!
