Child and Teen
Therapy

Perhaps you’ve noticed your child struggling or maybe they’ve expressed having big feelings, a desire to speak to someone outside the family, changes in mood and behaviors, changes in grades, emotional outburst, changes in your family (divorce, death, remarriage), feeling tired and keeping to themselves. Children and teens today are faced with more stress, anxiety, and emotions than ever before. You may be feeling the toll of this on yourself and within your family. Utilizing techniques specific to the unique ways children and teens communicate we build rapport to create a safe and trusting space while your child or teen can feel comfortable and heard. 

 It may be recommended to incorporate child/teen, individual, parent coaching, or relationship counseling.
