Hello Judy, my name is ***** ***** I am a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in New York State. I am so sorry to hear about what your nephew, his mother and you are going through. You must be very worried about him. May I ask how old he is and what other behaviors his mother or you are worried about. Has he been stealing? Lying? Aggressive toward others? Damaging property? etc. I look forward to hearing from you with answers to my questions, so that I may assist you better. Sincerely, ***** ***** LMSW, CASAC
