The Yeager Center for Children and Families

Our specialty is providing brief (4-6 sessions) solution-focused therapy, particularly to children struggling with problems related to ADHD and/or anxiety. In most cases, the child and the family already have the strengths and skills needed to resolve the problem. In therapy sessions, we help them to understand why they are having the current problems and how they can use existing strengths to solve those problems. Our goal is, in a short period of time, to:
1st, to bring about a resolution of the most critical problems and
2nd, to equip family members with insight and strategies that they
can use to resolve future problems.

Some families may find that they need additional help beyond the 4-6 sessions, We help those families to identify the right resources to provide that help.

 The Yeager Center for Children & Families, we can help you find alternative approaches–new ways of resolving the problems that your family experiences. With proper guidance, problems can then become opportunities for growth. We are licensed psychotherapists who specialize in child therapy and family therapy.
