What does Child Therapy look like?

Therapy for children is a highly specialized form of therapy that focuses on interpreting child behavior, defining its causes, and guiding healthier thoughts and feelings.

This process looks different for children of different ages. Younger children’s therapy typically consists of family quality time and play, while teen therapy tends to focus on discussing thoughts in cognitive behavior therapy and applying new skills to activities.

Children represent a completely unique psychology that is highly centered on learning and growth, which means that therapy for a child will be totally different from adult therapy. It is imperative, as a parent, to find a psychologist who is trained and experienced, as well as authorized, to work with children.



Does your child need therapy?

Parents may seek out treatment for their children for a myriad of reasons. Our pediatric psychiatrists and psychologists work with children on any issues that cause social or emotional distress in a child's life.

  • Children and young adults experiencing life adjustments such as a death or severe illness in the family, moving to a new home or school, or parental separation and divorce
  • Depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive behavior, and other mental disorders
  • Social difficulties such as low self-esteem, behavioral problems, or experiencing a traumatic event can also be treated with the assistance of psychological intervention.
  • Learning difficulties and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can significantly impact a child's performance at school and take a toll on their social relationships, self-esteem, and emotion regulation abilities.
  • Struggles related to academic and developmental issues, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), may also prompt parents to reach out for help.
