There was a time when children’s problems were ignored, brushed under the rug, or completely misunderstood as signs of them being “difficult” or in need of discipline. Thankfully, we know much better now. Here at Fyrklöver Mind Reflection Medical PC, we offer an array of vital and effective counseling services for children, ranging from help with ADHD to depression; from anxiety disorders to impulse control disorder. And you can be assured that your child is working with our experienced professional who understands the challenges involved for you, your child, and your entire family.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) typically begins in childhood, and can continue on into adulthood. It’s very common. In fact, over six million children in America have it. Among its effects are difficulties in focusing on things, impulsiveness, and hyperactivity. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) is associated with negative attitudes and behaviors toward those in authority. Our Lenox Hill children’s counselor works with your child to find the root causes of ADHD and ODD and to promote improvement. This may be through counseling alone or in conjunction with the appropriate medication. The same is true with depression and anxiety disorders, which are also typically an issue for adults. Stressful events and those that foist rapid and often unwanted changes upon a child can lead to adjustment disorder. The loss of a parent or other close loved one, including pets, are all examples. It can also be moving to a new city and/or starting in a new school. Our Lenox Hill children’s counselor also deals with Impulse Control Disorder and acting out. In addition, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is something that can be worked out with the help of counseling.
