Therapy for Children

Many kids need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need help sorting through their feelings about family issues, particularly if there's been a major transition, such as divorce, moving to a new area, or a serious illness or death in the family. You may also be concerned about the possibility of autism, ADHD or other issues for your child.

 

Just like adults, children can often benefit from therapy. Our child therapists understand how to help children and their families cope with stress, as well as a variety of emotional and behavioral issues.

 

If you feel that your child could use therapeutic help coping with a difficult life situation, or your child might have an emotional or behavioral problem, we want to help.

 

Some concerns our child therapists can help address:

  • Problems with family transitions (separation, divorce, relocation)
  • Behavioral problems (excessive anger, acting out, eating disorders)
  • A significant drop in grades
  • Excessive school absenteeism or tardiness
  • Episodes of sadness, tearfulness, or depression
  • Inability to connect with peers or teachers
  • Being the victim of bullying or bullying other children
  • Mood swings (happy one minute, upset the next)
  • Alcohol, drug, or other substance use
  • Sexual, physical, or emotional abuse or another traumatic event
  • Learning or attention problems (such as ADHD)

If you are wondering if therapy might be helpful for your child, please call us. We look forward to talking with you.
