CHILDREN & ADOLESCENTS
Individual Therapy for Children
We work with children by focusing on their unique temperaments, personalities, and development and how each child functions within the context of their family and their outer worlds. As you know, when your children were born and joined your family, they were unique, showing who they were almost immediately. Each child has their own unique temperament, personality, and ‘being’. We will help to nurture your child to being and becoming the best version of themselves that they can be. We will also help you as their parent to help get them there. This requires love, understanding, acceptance, and support for your “whole child” – their strengths and vulnerabilities. Our child therapy services have a strong parent and family component. We will work with you as a team.
Individual Therapy for Adolescents
We work with adolescents within the context of this unique transitional stage that includes families, peers, school, and their future adult development. We will help your teen discover who they are, what they want now and in the future, and how they can best get there with the help of their family, friends, and themselves. Strengths, vulnerabilities, obstacles and goals are all focused on. We know that when your teen hits this age and stage, parents begin to worry about where their teens are developmentally. They further worry about where things may have gone wrong and how much time is left to help support their teen within the intimate confines of their home/family. We will help ensure that the concerns or goals you or your teen have are addressed before they take that final step into adulthood.
