Professional statement

Georgette Harrison is a mental health counselor, licensed in CT and NY. She has been practicing in community mental health settings for the last 16 years, specializing in infant and early childhood mental health upon receipt of her post-graduate certificate in Infant-Parent Mental Health from the University of Massachusetts - Boston. Her private practice is devoted to supporting young children under the age of 7 and their caregivers. Parents typically seek therapy for young children when they are concerned about their development, their social skills, or fears and anxieties that seem to be getting in the way of their children going to school, playing with peers or separating from their parents.

Georgette is trained in several evidence-based practices, such as psychodynamic psychotherapy, Child-Parent Psychotherapy, Attachment-Regulation-Competency, Circle of Security and DIRFloortime. The underlying thread across all models is that they are all relational, attachment-based approaches that not only involve the child in treatment, but also their caregivers. Parents are the single most important people in a child's life, and children are best supported when parents are an integral part of treatment.

Therapy sessions are typically a combination of individual therapy, family therapy, and parent guidance, depending on the reason for seeking therapy. There is no "one-size-fits all" approach, no homework, no behavior or rewards charts. The heart of this approach is supporting the parent's and child's ability to reflect on what is going on in the child's internal world, looking beyond the behavior, and fostering closer, secure relationships.

Message to clients

The decision to seek therapy for a young child is fraught with anxiety and doubt. You may wonder if there is something "wrong" with your child, worry that there is something you're not doing "correctly." My goal is to help ease your mind as you and your family enter therapy, and help you and your child have the kind of relationship you've always wanted.

We may consider strategies together, but not before we have considered what might be going on for you and your child in those challenging moments. I'm a firm believer that if a single strategy worked for everyone, the parenting books you've probably read would have already addressed what is troubling you and your child. Instead, the therapy room serves as a safe space for everyone to think about what might go on between family members and what gets in the way of safe and loving interactions.

My wish is that when you are ready to pick up the phone and call, your anxiety and doubt will also be joined by a feeling of hope and that you can imagine a moment in the future when what is troubling you now will be a thing of the past.
