Child Behavioral Specialists at The Willow Center

The Child Behavioral Specialists’ Program at The Willow Center was created with the goal of helping children and parents navigate the big feelings and behavioral issues that kids sometimes struggle with. Our Certified Child Specialists empower children to better manage their emotions and behaviors by teaching them age-appropriate tools and coping skills. When parents support this work by helping their children practice these new ideas and behaviors at home, it leads to happier and healthier kids, parents, siblings, and families. 

We understand that children sometimes face challenges that can be overwhelming for both them and those around them. That's why we're thrilled to offer this specialized program designed to support children through their difficulties and help them develop the necessary skills to navigate life's challenges.

Program for children ages 4-12.
Rates: $45/45 minutes, $60/60 minutes. 
Groups available. Call for details.
