Therapy with children differs greatly from therapy with adults. Often times, children are unable to identify or explain their reasons for their fear, sadness or disruptive behavior. Children and teens are at risk for issues such as: depression, anxiety, manifestations of both emotional and physical pain, such as stomach aches. The loss of their family home for children happens at a time when developmentally they are unable to process their loss. Individual therapy can help them to successfully navigate through their distress from a separation and divorce. Therapists can develop individualized treatment plans appropriate to the needs of your child.
We have a little play area filled with games and crafts. We believe in play; children are working at expressing feelings that they find confusing and overwhelming (we are not play therapists).
Before meeting with your child or children, we will meet with you.
