Therapy for Children

Therapy can be a valuable tool for children and families to support their mental health and well-being. Therapy can help kids with the following:

  • Emotional difficulties and regulation: Children may have difficulty expressing their feelings in ways parents understand. Therapy can help children learn to identify and manage their emotions and develop healthy coping skills.

  • Behavioral management: Therapy can help identify the underlying reasons for these behaviors and provide caregivers with strategies for managing them.

  • Family conflict: Therapy can help children and families work through conflict and develop healthy communication and coping strategies.

  • Learning difficulties: Children may struggle with academic or learning challenges that impact their self-esteem and confidence. Therapy can provide support and strategies to improve academic performance and build self-esteem.

  • Trauma: Therapy can help children process trauma, neglect, and abuse in a safe and supportive environment.

Therapy for Pre-Teens and Teenagers

Adolescence is a period of development that typically occurs between the ages of 10 and 19, although the exact age range can vary depending on cultural and individual factors. During this time, young people experience significant physical, cognitive, and social changes as they transition from childhood to adulthood; these transitions can cause stress, anxiety, and/or depression.


While parents can support their children during this time period, teenagers can find it particularly helpful to talk to an unbiased and professional person to navigate these unique challenges.


Some of the key features that make adolescents special include:

  • Physical changes: Teenagers experience significant changes to their bodies during puberty, including growth spurts, and changes to their hormones

  • Cognitive changes: Adolescents experience significant changes to their brains and cognitive abilities during this time. They develop more advanced thinking skills, including the ability to think abstractly and understand complex concepts.

  • Social changes: Adolescents are also developing their social identities and relationships during this time. They may be exploring their sexuality, developing their independence from their families, and building social connections with peers. 

If you are ready to see how therapy can help your child, teen or family navigate all of life's changes, please do not hesitate to reach out!
