Christine Jeffrey's bio

This content was provided by Christine Jeffrey "Hello, I am Christine Jeffrey, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker helping families in and around the Morris County area. I grew up in New Jersey and studied at Pace University and Yeshiva University in NYC and earned my Master of Social Work from Barry University in Florida. I enjoy living in New Jersey with my husband and two children, who not surprisingly, have proven to be two of my best teachers. Family Therapist/ Parenting Coach For most parents nothing is more important than their relationship with their children – and no one wants to waste precious family time in conflict. As a family therapist and/or parenting coach I help mothers and fathers effectively gain control of their child's behavior while strengthening relationships in the family. So whether you are dealing with a specific behavioral challenge or facing a bigger life issue, I provide insightful observations, valuable effective techniques and concrete steps to help your child and family. I always highlight what a child and/or family is already doing well and what makes him or her special, while shaping challenges in a non-judgmental, caring way. Child Therapist I specialize in helping children work through behavioral, emotional and/or social problems they are experiencing. A parent typically seeks my help because of their child's battered self-esteem due to bullying or social problems, difficulties with a changing family or a serious mental health issue such as, an anxiety disorder or depression to name a few. Behaviors that parents bring to my attention include increased anger, irritability or aggression, declining grades, self-harm, anxiety that is frequent and intense enough to impede their child's function and happiness, defiance, sadness, school refusal, sleep issues, drug or alcohol related issues and many other behaviors that are significant enough to warrant concern and attention."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Christine Jeffrey "My Approach

As a family therapist and/or parenting coach, I offer expert guidance to help families regain their balance and move forward together. A top priority is preserving your parent-child relationship, and one of my greatest strengths is my ability to see connections and patterns that are key to resolving your family's difficulties and discord. It is also of the utmost importance to preserve and nurture a child's self-esteem in the process of addressing therapeutic issues. I use a short-term, goal-oriented style and create a specific plan designed to allow families to solve issues and move on.

As a child therapist I use creative and play therapy to uncover what a child's perception of an event, his or her situation or role in a relationship is and reflect that back to the parents so growth or change can be made. With young children the parents are involved in every session. With older adolescents parents are involved less in the one to one client-therapist relationship, but are still generally involved in their child's progress and plan-of-care. I offer a collaborative approach that may include teachers, the pediatrician and other caregivers, as needed and/or desired by the parents in their child's plan-of-care. If everyone is on the same page there is a much greater success rate and the control over the situation is back with the parents, where it belongs."
