Child Therapy

Child therapy is a form of therapy that has been tailored for children. Parents may seek therapy for their children on the recommendation of a doctor, teacher or because they feel that their child would benefit from talking to someone.

Navigating life as a child can be full of challenges...

Death of a parent

Family relocation


A new step-family


Struggling socially

A short time in therapy can help a child process difficult or new events.

Children in a wide variety of situations can benefit from psychotherapy. Behavioral issues can sometimes be a sign of underlying psychological problems. Children who are struggling in school may also be candidates for therapy.

Every therapist has a unique approach to working with children and may integrate several therapeutic techniques to find one that works best for the child.

Finding a good therapist for a child shouldn't be challenging.

Things to keep in mind are:

  • Level of experience
  • Making sure your child feels comfortable with the therapist
  • Look at the therapist approach and ask questions
  • Ask for a trial appointment so that the child can meet with the therapist without the pressure of being committed to future appointments.

Techniques I use are:

Parent Consultation

Parents may also seek out therapy on their own to deal with issues that arise as a child develops. This process is often called parent consultation. During a parent consultation session, we will discuss current concerns, look at the different options available, develop a plan and create goals. I often meet with one or both parents to discuss their concerns. I consult on a variety of issues such as:
  • Anger management
  • Bulling
  • Social skills
  • Aggression
  • Difficult or un-manageable behaviors
  • Isolation
  • Sadness
  • Toileting
  • Sleeping
