If so, your child may benefit from child therapy and counseling.
There are many ways children exhibit distress. For some, it is fighting, acting out, angry outbursts, or bullying their peers. For others it may be withdrawing from friends and social activities, shutting down emotionally, falling behind in school or ignoring you.
With the rise of technology and social media, children are now growing up exposed to the world quicker than ever. As a result, children may experience challenges with navigating social issues such as conflict resolution, bullying, and making wise choices. Often the pressure to perform both academically and socially impact their self-esteem and cause anger, anxiety, and depression. This can impact how children interact with their families and behave at home.
An experienced licensed child therapist can use a variety of techniques to connect with your child and support them. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, art and play therapy can help children of all ages to express their feelings, develop a sense of empowerment, and improve self- esteem.
In addition to child-focused interventions, the therapist can support parents with setting boundaries and improving communication at home. Parents will learn how to reinforce positive coping skills for their child through productive and growth-producing techniques.
Our experienced team of licensed therapists will work with you to understand and identify possible stressors in your child’s life and strategies to cope with them. We will work with you to develop an individualized plan to work with children and their families.
