Message from Ali Litavsky

Life’s challenges can often feel overwhelming, especially for kids facing the pressures of school, family, and everything in between. They want relief from the pressure and to overcome past trauma, but it’s an emotional rollercoaster that leaves them and their parents feeling helpless and frustrated.

I’m Ali Litavsky, a Child Therapist at Cedar Tree Counseling. I specialize in helping children address trauma, family conflicts, and life changes, and teaching them to manage big feelings like depression, anxiety, and anger.

I understand the complexities and struggles kids face today, and I believe they can be overcome. That’s why I provide a safe space for children and their families that fosters emotional well-being and lasting resilience.

With proper guidance and support, kids can successfully navigate life’s challenges. By developing coping skills to manage their feelings and behaviors, kids can cultivate healthier relationships, overcome anxiety and trauma, and ultimately unlock their full potential.

At Cedar Tree, we’ve made getting started with counseling simple.

First, fill out the new client appointment form on the website

Second, someone from our intake team will reach out to you.

Third, your child can develop the coping skills needed for a more harmonious home and school life.

So, if you’re ready to leave the overwhelming pressures behind and embrace a balanced and fulfilling future for your family, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment today. Together, we can begin your journey towards success.
