Most children and tweens will face problems in life that feel overwhelming and distressing. There are times when life stressors turn into anxiety, panic, depression and difficult behaviors. Therapy is a place for young people to feel heard and learn how to problem solve their way through common and sometimes uncommon life stressors. In therapy, children learn how to cope and communicate better. 

Most times, children and sometimes adults do best by learning on the spot. This includes role playing, talking out problems and behavior tracking. Activities are developed specifically to the clients’ presenting issues to help keep the person engaged. Sometimes, the entire family needs to be involved to provide adequate support and behavior change at home. Sometimes parents will join a session while other times the child will spend the entire session with the therapist.

What to expect

You should expect your child to walk away with skills. These skills can include communicating in healthy ways, setting boundaries, saying “no” when they are uncomfortable and expressing why they are uncomfortable. We will teach your child listening skills, including how to develop active listening skills such as eye contact and head nodding. They will learn how to engage in healthy activity such as back-and-forth play, role playing conflict and resolution skills and learning how to win and lose a game gracefully. Lastly, children will learn how to appropriately problem-solve through deductive reasoning and critical thinking skills and then how to generalize their skills to be applied in various situations.
