So many bright kids come into the therapy office and say things like this.
Why do some smart, creative, and talented kids doubt their abilities and avoid asking for help?
Why do some kids avoid trying new things or become so stressed when they make simple mistakes?
Why do so many feel like they are a burden on their families and friends who love them?
Our older kids may struggle with high stress from advanced schoolwork or burn out from boredom and disinterest.

Some kids can even become physically sick because of their stress and have thoughts about harming themselves.
Our gifted, creative, and high-performing kids have needs that many people just do not understand.
