Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy
Child and adolescent psychotherapy helps address issues including, but not limited to, Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD), depression, bi-polar disorder, anxiety disorders, issues related to parental separation or divorce, peer-relationship problems, family relationship problems, and problems related to school achievement.
Childhood and adolescence can be a challenging time for many. Children may face challenges with peers, school, parents divorcing, death of a family member, social awkwardness, or discipline. Adolescents may also face similar challenges and can also struggle with sexuality, relationships, puberty, independence, drugs and alcohol, or life-changing decisions.
Given that parents/legal guardians are bringing their child/adolescent into counseling we expect that parents/legal guardians will respect the need for confidentiality in your child’s counseling relationship with their Therapist. However, we also believe that the parent/legal guardian can be our greatest asset in helping a child succeed in meeting their counseling goals. As such, the Therapist who works with your child/adolescent will consult with the parent/legal guardian on a regular basis about their assessment of the child’s mental, emotional, and behavioral health.
