Individual and Family Counseling Services

Thank you for your interest in our Individual/Family Counseling Services. Our Individual/Family Counseling Services are currently a designated program for individuals undergoing care and treatment by our medical staff at the Siskin Center for Developmental Pediatrics. Led by a doctoral level licensed marital and family therapist with over 10 years of clinical experience, our center provides a range of individual and family counseling options for children and families facing a variety of challenges.

Through a knowledgeable, caring, and systemic approach, our integrative counseling services and techniques help to address a range of referral concerns commonly experienced by many children and families with special needs. These include difficulties related to developmental concerns, an autism spectrum diagnosis, peer struggles and general social skill difficulties, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks, disruptive behavior, separation anxiety, parenting techniques, obsessive-compulsive behavior, learning challenges, low self-esteem, executive functioning difficulties, ADHD, and more.
