Sometimes kids, like adults, can benefit from counseling. Counseling can help kids develop problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. Child mental health specialists can help kids cope with stress and a variety of emotional and behavioral issues.
More than ever before, our kids need help dealing with things like bullying, academics, peer pressure, or even navigating family issues, particularly if there’s a major transition, such as a divorce, the birth of a sibling, or chronic illness, for example. Learning emotions identification and coping skills can help little ones work through those feelings and transitions.
I have specialized in child trauma for several years now, including abuse and neglect, and my modality employs a combination of evidence-based treatments such as TF-CBT or child centered play therapy, along with art, sand tray, and games that help your child feel at ease while providing a therapeutically successful environment. I’ve also facilitated several therapeutic parenting groups, and I can offer insight into your child’s behaviors and give you tools for navigating those muddy waters. You can even learn to strengthen your relationship with your child!
