Child & Teen Therapy

Being a parent isn’t always easy, and is a critically important job 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Our team can help you and your family navigate any difficulties and provide you with the skills and knowledge you and your children need to achieve happy and healthy lives.

Your Not Alone

An estimated 160,000 U.S. children miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students.
Parenting is the hardest, though most rewarding, job one can have. Establishing a healthy sense of self-esteem, confidence, focus and emotional security are core goals for any parent– but how exactly does one ensure the best success for their child?
Good intentions and love are a great basis for parenting, and often come naturally. However prepared we may feel, though, we learn very quickly that there are situations and conversations we are not equipped to deal with at the level of understanding and helpfulness that our children might need.

Depression is more than just feeling a little sad or having a rough day. For someone with depression, the feelings of sadness can last a long time. Depression can affect children and adolescents of all ages.

The "teen years" can be a difficult adjustment for parents and kids

We're In Y our Corner

Psychologists have found that self-injury can rapidly get rid of tension and other bad feelings. It's crucial that teens learn safe, healthy, effective coping strategies so they can deal with anxiety and stress appropriately into adulthood.
There are times when increased conflict is outside the realm of what would be considered  typical adolescent behavior. The increased conflict can become extremely detrimental and impact not only parents' relationship with their children but also your child's ability learn how to relate to their peers.   Problems can arise leading to marked personality changes. Teens who are unable to verbalize their difficulties  may resort to acting them out. These "acting out" behaviors and/or personality changes can include increased verbal or physical aggression, increased irritability, anxiety, depression, drug use, internet addiction, sexual acting out, disordered eating, a recent lack of friends or a recent increase in conflict with friends, nonsuicidal self-injurious behaviors, and other such mental health problems.
