Individual Therapy for Children & Teens
Children and teenagers often begin therapy after struggling with overwhelming feelings, having a difficult experience, or displaying challenging behaviors at home or school.
Children and teens can find it challenging to recognize emotions and regulate behavior, leading to a disconnect between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. This often manifests in children and teens through anxiety, depression, poor self-esteem, anger, poor academic performance, social withdrawal, avoidance, and acting out.
Other challenges faced by children include problems concentrating, focusing, and socializing.
Stress and high expectations are also important to consider, as they are incredibly impactful on well-being. Add in stressful life situations, COVID-19, "regular" school and home stresses...it can sometimes just feel like too much.
Therapy can help children develop skills that allow them to control their behavior, develop self-confidence, process challenges, and manage strong emotions.

Family involvement is very important to the treatment process. It may consist of working with parents to oversee their child's treatment or more in-depth involvement in the form of family therapy, parenting consultation, behavior management skills, or other family based interventions. We take a team-based approach and collaborate to support you and your family in conjunction with pediatricians, teachers, and other important figures in your child’s life.
