Children and adolescents often require specialized therapy options to cope with the stresses present in their environments. It is extremely critical for children with learning challenges, physical disabilities, or mental health disabilities to learn positive coping skills, adaptability, and resiliency skills while they are in their youth.
Our therapeutic services can help your child navigate the stress of divorcing parents, academic problems, peer pressure, and exposures to other distressing situations.
The first step in helping a child to excel is the identification process. If your child is exhibiting unacceptable behavior, there may be more going on that therapy can bring to the surface. Children that have been bullied, is bullying others, presenting hypersexual behavior, unable to focus in the academic environment, may benefit from the counseling experience.
How much experience do you have working with children?
I have worked with young victims of trauma and sexual abuse for over 10 years. I have served as an adolescent rape crisis counselor specifically aiding young victims of sexual assault. I also worked as a child Therapeutic Behavioral Specialist, helping children with mental diagnoses utilize coping skills in educational, community, and home settings.
I have an out of control teenager. Can you help?
The teenage years can be a tough time for parents and the teenager. Therapy can help the teenager understand the developmental changes that are occurring in their body while learning how to regulate their emotions and behaviors.
