Child & Teen Therapy
What is It?
Child & Teen Therapy can help children deal with the demands and stressors of school, issues relating to their self-esteem, complications with their interpersonal relationships, and teach them how to cope with current issues going on in the family.
Children and teenagers can benefit from therapy just as adults can. There doesn’t need to be something ‘wrong’ in order to seek out counseling. Child & Teen Therapy can be seen a supplement to your child’s development, helping them to express themselves in a safe environment.
How Can It Help?
A child or teen’s mental and physical well-being can be greatly improved if early intervention takes place. If your child seems to be consistently acting outside of the norm, it might be helpful to bring him/her in for a session. In understanding what your child is dealing with, we can assist them in finding healthy solution.
If you aren’t sure whether your child or teen might be in need of a professional therapist, ask yourself the following:
Is he/she having trouble in more than one area of life? For instance, at school, family relationships, friendships, and leisure activities.
Have they started to withdraw from their family and friends and don’t seem to enjoy the activities that they used to love?
Do they show consistent signs of low self-esteem and self-doubt?
Do they communicate constant feelings of hopelessness and worry about the future?
Is there a change in their sleeping and eating habits?
Do they have repetitive, self-destructive behaviors such as skin-picking or hair pulling?
Do they talk about or engage in any type of self-harm behavior?
As mentioned before, Child & Teen Therapy can benefit any child or teen at any age, and they don’t need to have a condition or problem in order to want to lead their best lives. We share tools that will help build confidence, improve communication and enhance their well-being.
