First it is important to acknowledge and to say thank you for seeking out the help of a psychologist. The objective of a psychologist is to work children, teenagers and their families to help them realise their full potential through psychological assessment and treatment. Children sometimes need psychological help just like adults do. Families can struggle to identify the unique psychological and educational strengths and challenges of their child. The psychologist serves as a resource to where families can come to better understand individual treatment and educational needs of their child and discover how to best address these needs with comprehensive treatment.  Often parents need therapy to help them with facing difficulties in their family life which is also provided.  To go directly to  Mariam's center "The Child Foundation Center" follow the link http://childfoundationcenter.com
