Children can experience a very wide range of really big emotions. One minute he’s laughing hysterically, the next crying and screaming uncontrollably. As a parent, this can be frustrating, challenging, and even scary at times. Kids feel things so intensely, and don’t yet have the skills to understand and manage all of these emotions. Often times your child might present as angry, but they don’t realize that there’s usually many other emotions under it. That anger is the easiest and safest to show - and it’s what they know - but your child will feel empowered once they are able to recognize various emotions, where they feel them in their body, and how to manage them when they do show up.
Meet Josie McCall, LSW
I am a therapist and licensed social worker. I specialize in working with children and teens that are struggling to feel confident in their own skin and have trouble fitting in with peers. I have a passion for working with children and teens that are socially isolated, shy, and have low self-esteem. Empowering them to shine as the amazing person they are is a central part of the work we will do together.
