Is child or teen therapy right for your family?
Is your child or teen depressed or anxious? Does he or she have ADD/ADHD, and are you unsure how to help him or her cope? Are you concerned about school performance, social shyness, or technology addiction? Maybe you’re worried as a parent that you don’t know how to respond to some of these and other behaviors.
Therapy can help you and your child chart a way forward.
Many parents feel the same way you do.
Millions of children and their families struggle with disagreements on behavior and perspective. Sometimes these disagreements are based in genetics, such as when a child and family grow their relationship through the challenges of autism and other forms of learning disability. Sometimes the family distress is a matter of resolving forms of childhood trauma or gaining perspective. Technology can also distract and place psychological demands on us as individuals and on our families.
Therapy may make a difference.
I work with children, teens, and their families to help improve self-understanding and self-acceptance, communication, and individual and family unit togetherness.
I work one-on-one with the child or teen and sometimes with the broader family as needed. I also offer occasional group sessions to help families who would like to share with one another.
By working with a qualified psychotherapist, children and their parents may yield breakthroughs in understanding such that many of the most worrisome issues resolve themselves.
