The terms "therapy" or "psychotherapy" and "counseling" are sometimes used synonymously. I am a psychotherapist with a doctorate degree in clinical social work. My advanced clinical training was based on the principles of psychodynamic psychology. My philosophy is that all behavior has meaning. Children's behavior is a window into their internal world. Getting to the root of what is happening internally for the child is the key to effecting behavior change.
