Watching Your Child Struggle is Painful
Life can be hard, especially when you haven't had time to develop coping skills. Sometimes you need a helping hand.
Our Child Therapists Can Help
Our child therapists specialize in working with children ages 2-12, and are skilled in a variety of therapeutic techniques disguised as play. We use play therapy and methods such as coping cats (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy adapted for kids) (https://www.copingcatparents.com/) and the turtle technique.
Child counseling can help you to identify the root of the issues your child is experiencing. Child therapy also can teach children new emotional skills for managing their problems now and in the future. Therapy can help them navigate important life challenges like divorce, behavioral problems, sickness and death. Likewise it helps them deal with all the complicated feelings they may be experiencing.
