Dig deeper into individual differences, emotional co-regulation and sensory processing
Beautyful Hero is founded by Mimi Thuong, a licensed child psychotherapist. She is one of the very few child psychotherapists that is skilled in using English and Vietnamese in professional and therapeutic settings. She is licensed and endorsed in the state of California.
Beautyful Hero’s Vision:
All parents, early childhood educators and pediatric professionals gain a completely new way of understanding children’s challenging behaviors. A developmental-relational approach will help us dig deeper and successfully solve these behaviors, especially the most complex ones.
Working with the Birth to Five population requires specialized and research-based interventions. My approaches include: Brazelton Touch Points, DIR-Floortime, Child Parent Psychotherapy and Triple P.
Each child develops at their own pace and in their own unique way (not necessarily by chronological age). My approach is customized and individualized to your child's needs to maximize their strengths.
Many research have confirmed the power of play on child development. I use play to help your child express their deepest feelings and strengthen interactions between you and your child.
Emotional development is the ability to manage emotions, grow healthy relationships and develop empathy. Emotional development and cognitive development are profoundly interrelated and cannot be separated.
Co-regulation is the "dance" of two-way, in-sync, back-and-forth interactions. It is one of the earliest means of human communication developed in infancy. Co-regulation is the foundation for self-regulation and managing behaviors.
Self-regulation is the ability to stay calm, focused and alert while taking in information and staying connected to people. Self-regulation skills are learned most effectively through emotional co-regulation.
Disconnection is at the heart of many behavioral problems. I am here to help you reconnect with your child and regain your confidence in parenting. Through the power of co-regulation, your child will be supported to transform his behaviors and maximize his unique strengths.
