Life sometimes throws curveballs and as a parent you may notice mild or drastic changes in your child that are causing concerns. Child counseling provides your child with a non-judgemental environment where they can voice or express their emotions and work with a trained mental health professional to break down problems and equip your child to cope with their obstacles and achieve their best self.
Our child therapists use various evidenced-based practices such as play therapy, expressive arts, and different models of talk therapy to help address and treat a wide range of mental health conditions with children ages 8 and up.
What is the parent/caregiver’s role in child therapy?
Through working with parents, we recognize that there can be a mix of emotions in seeking help for your child. We work collaboratively with parents throughout your child's therapeutic journey and strive to create a strong therapeutic alliance with parents, welcoming your insight, questions, and feedback.
During the work with your child, we may also have the goal of strengthening the parent-child relationship by helping parents develop ways to communicate with their child more effectively outside of sessions. We offer parental guidance sessions as a way to inform, educate, and support parents throughout their child’s therapeutic journey.
