WHAT IS CHILD/ADOLESCENT THERAPY?

Child/adolescent therapy is designed to address challenges and trauma in a manner that breaks down the issues into manageable parts in order to meet the unique needs and perspectives of their developing brains. Like adults, young people can experience a wide range of emotions and difficulties and although some of those challenges may seem small, the impact they have on a child’s development can still be quite adverse if not addressed appropriately. The goal of child/adolescent counseling is to help your child and you to understand their needs and teach productive coping skills that will cultivate as opposed to inhibit their emotional and mental success.
