Infant mental health focuses on the the bond and attachment developed between baby and caregiver. The therapist guides this relationship through respectful parent/child interaction and positive communication in order to ensure healthy development and successful milestones. This treatment is designed for guardians of children 0-5 years of age. This service can be useful for first time parents that find themselves curious about what to expect and how to lay the foundation for a healthy child and family, as well as for parents that find themselves with a child or children that have a challenging temperament and want to learn and adapt their parenting approach to accommodate the emotional well-being of their child while fostering cooperative behavior. There are a variety of parenting philosophies; I align most closely with the RIE approach developed by Magda Gerber. Give me a call if you’re interested in learning more about taking care of your baby’s emotional development and ensuring a secure attachment.
