CARING, PROFESSIONAL AND COMPETENT CHILD & FAMILY PSYCHOLOGIST SERVICES Wynns Family Psychology is a specialty practice dedicated to serving children, adolescents, and families. Our focus is to deliver high-quality therapy treatment, testing, and consultations from our team of doctoral-level psychologists. Here you can find more specific information about our therapy services and evaluation services.
Despite children and modern families facing many complex issues, parents often still feel ashamed, responsible, discouraged or hopeless when their child is having problems. But seeking help from a child psychologist doesn't mean you’ve failed as a parent. Rather, it means you recognize your child, adolescent or teen is hurting or challenged.
Our focus at Wynns Family Psychology is not on blame and negativity – it’s on solutions. We want every family to succeed and believe in the inherent strength and resiliency within each child and adolescent. Kids respond well to positive, solution-focused therapy. So we form an encouraging and collaborative team with parents and children, while actively participating in achieving your goals. Our approach to child therapy and testing is always professional, customized, and confidential. Wynns Family Psychology is committed to helping your family make important life changes during difficult times, finding the most effective solutions to your problems, and successfully guiding your children away from the cycle of negative behaviors & toward emotional well-being.
There are many ways a child psychologist can assist you. Consider talking to a child psychologist when your child or adolescent is:
• Sad or depressed
• Anxious or fearful
• Having problems controlling anger or frustration
• Performing poorly or inconsistently in school academics
• Having difficulty making or keeping friends
• Demonstrating poor social skills
• Getting into trouble at home or problems at school (wcpss)
• Dealing with a major life change such as a move, separation,
divorce, death of a family member or friend, or change
within the family
• Showing signs of Autism or Asperger's Syndrome
• Showing signs of high I Q, Academic Giftedness, or
preschooler readiness for Kindergarten
• Showing signs of ADHD or a Learning Disability
And while Wynns Family Psychology specializes in children, adolescents, and families, we also enjoy working with individual adults and couples. Here you can find more specific information about our therapy services, testing services and doctoral-level psychologists.
