Children and Adolescents

Is your child having challenges that are impacting how they feel, act, or learn? Therapy may help your child develop better communication skills, improve self-esteem, decrease disruptive behaviors, and learn how to communicate and work through these challenges.

Therapy can help your child when they are experiencing issues or feelings such as:

  • Family problems
  • School problems
  • Bullying 
  • Depression or sadness
  • Anger
  • Anxiety or worries
  • Self-esteem
  • Grief and trauma 
  • Coming Out
  • Questioning their identities 

There are many types of therapies that can be utilized when working with children such as Play Therapy, Art Therapy, Music Therapy, etc. Interventions used by a therapist can help a child recognize, identify, and verbalize feelings. Through a combination of talk and play, the child has an opportunity to better understand and manage their conflicts, feelings, and behavior. 

Therapy is not an immediate solution. It is a process that takes time and with time can reduce symptoms and improve your child's overall functioning and well-being.
