Child and Teen Therapy
For Individual therapy, we take a skills-based approach to teach kids (age 6 to 17) cognitive-behavioral skills to help them
emotionally regulate themselves
cope with stress
stay focused and organized
and deal well with family and other social relationships.
Creative and play-based activities are integrated into learning emotional and social skills to keep therapy engaging and fun.
Kids have therapy “homework” to practice these skills between sessions in their every day lives.
A family systems approach is included such that some parenting work with and support of parents is key to treatment.
