Feeling helpless as your child is struggling with day to day tasks, friendships, self-esteem and mood swings that seem to come out of nowhere…
You know deep down that something isn’t right and you’re not sure where to turn.
I want you to know that you’re not alone and you’re in the right place.
Dr. Hiotakis is a miracle worker and because of our time together our son is enjoying his life to the fullest. Aiden not only sleeps through the night, he sleeps in his own bed and goes to sleepovers with no issues. Before working with Dr. Hiotakis we struggled for years with Aiden constantly coming into our room in the middle of the night because he couldn’t sleep or was extremely anxious. We only wish we started earlier.
Dr. Hiotakis is the real deal, full of heart and backed up by science. She was always very clear when trying to help us understand why our daughter Olivia acted out. She was the first person to point out that Olivia’s behavior was linked to her own anxiety, She even helped us see the stress levels in our home and how we were over-scheduled as a family. We are still extremely busy but we have carved out down time and check in time each week with Olivia and our other children. Dr. Hiotakis has changed our family forever and we are so grateful.
We finally know how to talk to our girls in a way that does not trigger them and does not trigger us. Prior to working with Dr. Hiotakis we were constantly on the go with practices, travel league requirements, dance recitals, not to mention our demanding careers. We realized we needed to get some advice because our daughters were showing us a lot of stress and worry and honestly we felt it too. Dr. Hiotakis helped put everything in perspective and shifted our thinking on how we could approach conversations in ways that were supportive and directed.
Our daughter Lindsay has so much confidence after working with Dr. Hiotakis she is unstoppable. We struggled for years because Lindsay was so attached to us. She had difficulty staying in school and would rarely leave our side. When she did she was full of tears. Dr. Hiotakis worked with our daughter to help her understand her anxiety and gave her tools to deal with it. She also educated us and provided us with the knowledge of when to and how to intervene and to also be aware
I’ve been working with children and families as a clinical psychologist for over 15 years, and have the added benefit of having worked & consulted with schools for 13 years.
This gives me a unique perspective about the rigors and demands of your child’s day to day life. I understand what is required of you to manage your child’s schedule, workload as well as your own.
I have further training and expertise as a health & wellness coach and how lifestyle choices can impact overall wellbeing.
As a mother I am acutely aware that when your child is suffering, you are suffering.
Let’s stop that now.
