There is no great commitment in life than the one we make to our children and family

 

Any parent knows this can be a difficult process as we do our best to raise our children in a loving and healthy marriage or family.  At Paramount Health Directions, under the direction of Dr. Stamatoiu, we offer a wide range of helpful services for children, families, parents, and couples. Dr. Stamatoiu has put together a team Psychologists, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners, and Therapists who specialize in providing the best possible care.

We believe that children and families benefit from a team approach, where we work closely and effectively with parents. We want parents to feel listened to and understood; parents are the ones who best know their children. Our assessment and treatment approaches are proven to identify where the problem lies and the best course of action for improvement.

 

children

At PHD we understand the stress that parents go through when a child is struggling. Whether it’s the child’s behavior, academic performance, relationships, mood or general well-being, our team has the expertise to identify and implement the best treatment plan for your child.

 

Families

Unlike many other practitioners, our providers are trained and experienced in providing helpful “Solution-Focused” therapy for families. The primary purpose of family therapy is to nurture positive change within the interaction of family members. Because family relationships are a key factor in psychological health, we at PHD focus on providing effective and helpful therapy for families. We want parents to feel like there is a clear plan and noticeable improvement from the first appointment on. Many parents complain that past attempts at family therapy were unhelpful and lacked focus. At PHD we are confident that we can help you and your children manage and grow beyond what ever challenges you may be facing.

 

relationships

Much like family therapy, couples therapy demands a highly skilled therapist who is experienced in assisting couples improve their relationship. If you’re in a relationship that seems stuck in patterns that cause hurt feelings, resentments, or disconnection, give us a call so we can help. Many couples wait until the problem is practically intolerable or stick with an approach that lacks results. Let’s address your relationship in a manner that makes it stronger, healthier, and more loving.

 

School and Educational Services

Cindy Souser, our marriage and family therapist, works as a liaison and school consultant for students with challenges both academic and in the social emotional arena. With a diverse background working with twice exceptional students, those with ASD, Dyslexia, ADD, depression and anxiety, Cindy aids in helping teachers and families with instructional support. Strength based strategies are implemented in the home and in school to reduce power struggles and failure loops. IEP and 504 plans can also be included in the care plan.

 

House Calls and In-Home Therapy

Our therapists also work closely with parents and families to help guide and establish routines and systems to reduce power struggles.

·      Positive language and reinforcement

·      Routines and reinforcements

·      Goal setting

·      Reward systems

This is to help reduce power struggles and help the family work as a team during difficult times.
