Erik Young, MEd, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Downingtown
Parenting is hard. Parenting a special needs child is harder. Kids don't come with owner's manuals. If your child happens to have special needs, the situation is often confusing. You want nothing more than to help your child. It's what we do when our children are struggling. Sometimes you just don't know what to do to help. It can leave feeling helpless. You are not alone. I know from personal and professional experience what it takes to make major changes. No matter the nature of his struggle, be it autism, adhd, or some other challenge, you can help your child.
I try to speak to that special light in each individual. To meet them where they are at and help them find their way towards health and healing.
My name is Erik Young. I have spent the last 20 years working with special individuals and their families. I know as a parent the challenges inherent in parenting special needs children. I know how to heal the rifts between couples. I've been where you're at. Please, contact me for a consultation.
