Ms. Hafzalla’s primary focus is on assisting children, teenagers and young adults and their families gain insight and transform when having to address challenges such as anxiety, emotional regulation, trauma or depression. School or family transitions, for instance could lead to some of the above experiences in youngsters and their families. Equally, learning challenges or social-emotional adaptation required whether at school, with friends or at home could be disorienting and stressful. Sometimes even a positive change such as a new sibling could be surprising and distressing.
