About Laurie Schoenberg LMFT, MA, MS
Child Therapist, Early Interventionist, Family Therapy

I am a licensed Marriage Family Therapist (MFT), specializing in working with children/adolscents with developmental, emotional & behavioral
issues. I have completed two graduate degree (child development and counseling psychology) where my training focused on developmental
issues of childhood and child psychopathology issues. Over the years, I have worked with hundreds of children/adolscents and families in a
variety of settings including: clinical settings, early childhood schools, elementary/middle/high schools, hospitals, out-patient mental health
settings and in-home visitation programs. I am also a lecturer, parent educator and past college professor.
Sometimes adults struggle with their our own emotion regulation and ability to connection with their partners emotionally. My developmental
lens works well with adults who are struggling with personal or professional relationships. I support each family's specific concerns in
establishing emotional connections.
I encourage children/adolscents and adults alike to understand how their brain works; so you can truly start to control emotions, increase focus
and attention and most importantly to have empathy for those we love and care about. Once we learn how to exercise the brain; our relationships
can improve dramatically!
