Who to refer

Cooper House works with parents beginning in the prenatal period, and with children from birth to age 5. We see families facing challenges in the areas of:

  • trauma
  • depression and anxiety
  • separation and loss, including divorce, foster care, and adoption
  • aggression
  • withdrawal
  • behaviors that are difficult to understand
  • fussiness–irritability
  • sleeping and feeding issues
  • getting along with peers

Depending upon the concerns and the age of the child, we might recommend a dyadic approach, where therapist meets with the caregiver(s) and child together. Four and five year olds may make good use of individual play therapy, with separate parent coaching sessions for the the caregivers.
