I am Dr. Amy Montague and I operated a successful psychology practice in Torrance, California for twenty years.
I specialized in Marriage Counseling, Family Counseling, Children all ages Individual Counseling, Schizophrenia, Hypnosis, Relaxation Therapy, Anxiety Disorders, Depressive Disorders, Stroke victims. Using psychodynamic psychotherapy and cognitive/behavioral therapy.
Often the reason that children are emotionally disturbed is because of anger issues that build up over time. They just want to feel good about themselves so they can like themselves and others. They just need someone to talk to that understands them and does not judge them.
Young children trust me and talk to me because I can still remember what it was like to be young and I can relate to them. I use play therapy and build trust so that children feel comfortable expressing their true feelings as if they were talking to a pier. Before I was a psychologist I was a Montessori teacher and gained teaching experience.
Forming a happy health relationship with a therapist is the beginning of correcting problems and relationships with others. Early intervention is highly recommended for all children with social problems.
