About Shannon Guinther
Are your child or teen’s emotions or behaviors out of control? Are they -- having tantrums or fights, talking back, self-harming, threatening suicide, running away, or refusing to follow rules? Calls from their teachers or other parents, complaints from their siblings or babysitter, can leave you feeling overwhelmed, angry or helpless. You want your child to grow, thrive, do well in school and with peers, and be a happy part of your family. I believe we can work together to achieve this. I specialize in providing child and teen assessments and treatment, and will include you to help them succeed.
Parenting can be hard, especially when kids are in difficult stages. Without judgment, I will provide you with tips and tools to help make life easier and bring calm to your child and household. I’ll use play therapy for your little one or talk therapy if you have a pre-teen or teen, while keeping you in the loop.
Stressors, traumas and developmental crises can cause dramatic shifts in children. I’ve helped many kids, teens and parents, and believe I can help your family, too. You’ve dealt with this long enough! Call or email me now so we can get started on the path to healing.
