Seida Hood, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Saint Charles
Are you finding your child's behavior challenging, upsetting & frustrating on a daily basis? Does your child seem to know exactly which buttons to push to provoke family members and cause dysfunction within the household? You've probably tried different strategies to manage this behavior, but none seem to work. My expertise is in helping your child & family to become a successful, thriving unit that functions at the highest level possible. I specialize in working with children and adolescents who have severe emotional/behavioral disorders such as Bipolar Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Conduct Disorder & other disorders that disrupt family functioning.
Angry kids, kids who have experienced trauma, and those who demonstrate self-destructive and/or aggressive behaviors are definitely welcomed into my practice. Please see my website to learn more about the practice. To schedule an appointment, please call me at 630.300.1502.
I prefer to see children/adolescents in-office, especially when establishing the relationship. I understand as adults life is busy & typical hours may not work; therefore I offer secure, HIPAA compliant online sessions as an option for those who prefer it. Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner on site for medication management.
