Review for Christian Counseling Service of East Valley Inc, Redlands, CA, USA
I brought my grandson to CCS for detachment disorder. He was maving major anxiety and fear that I would forget to pick him up or be late, even though I have never not picked him up and rarely was late, and then only a few minutes. The routine was that I would arrive 15 minutes early at school and sit in front of his class door so he could see me as soon as he walked out.
Jonathan, his therapist, has been kind and patient, and fun to where my grandson looks forward to seeing him each week. Jonathan has taught him skills to use to calm and reason himself when his anxiety starts, not just for separation time, for all times my grandson is afraid or anxious about other things.
Both my grandson and I are happy that the skills he learned are working. I believe this is giving him more confidence to venture away from me more often which make us both happy. He is even letting me know that he thinks he can stop himself from having me reassure him every time we separate….like promising him every morning that I will be there to pick him up and not needing me to be in front of the classroom door after school. This is a big step as this has been going on for several years now.
How wonderful to see my grandson start to be independent again.
Thank You Jonathan and CCS for helping us.
