Therapy can help people of all ages, including children and their parents. It provides a safe space, an “outside” perspective, and opportunities to grow and learn.
Child therapy usually involves a combination of playing, talking, and learning and practicing new skills. Parent/caregiver involvement is also very important. As a caregiver, you have valuable information that can help your therapist help your child. Children may be given “assignments” to carry what they are learning in therapy into their day-to-day lives; parents play a key role in helping kids to practice new skills. And, if you have questions about parenting, your therapist is here to help.
Therapy can help with a variety of concerns, including mood problems, anxiety and fears, behavior issues, parenting, and trouble managing emotions (e.g., tantrums and angry outbursts). It can also help children heal from child sexual abuse and other trauma.
Our therapists work with children ages 3 and older and their caregivers.
“Too often we give our children answers to remember, rather than problems to solve.”
