At Amygdala Co we connect parents and children to  

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy Therapists

and Behavioral Health Professionals

to reduce externalizing behaviors (i.e. anxiety, defiance).

Creating skillful ways to feel better

Parenting doesn’t come with a rule book.


In the heat of the moment, it can be overwhelming to quickly apply best parenting behavior practices.


At Amygdala Co, we empower parents/caregivers by using a teach-the-teacher approach to therapy. Our Therapists pass skills onto parents and parents pass their newly developed skills onto their children. 

Post-treatment research shows therapy increases parents’ confidence in their ability to control their child’s defiant behavior and reduces-to-clinically eliminates child externalizing behaviors.
