Child and/or adolescent psychotherapy focuses on helping them learn how to connect their behaviors to their thoughts and feelings, how to cope with stressors and/or trauma in a healthy manner, how to communicate effectively, and how to increase their capacity for self-compassion and self-soothing. Our clinicians utilize developmentally appropriate supplements (e.g., play, art, digital/media) to support the therapeutic process. Therapy for young children utilizes their natural ability of communicating through play, which can include sand play, Legos, games, and art. The sessions may be individual or family depending on the presenting issues and the age of the client, and the work often includes helping their parents/caregivers to provide a safe, supportive and loving environment, reduce conflict and increase communication. When appropriate, we will also engage schools, coaches, and other important individuals in your child and/or adolescent's life.
