When Children Need Special Care
As parents, we want to help our children become good/productive/excellent adults. However, there’s a long road to get there. Often parents find themselves ill-equipped to deal with the stressors of parenting, or not knowing how to deal with the difficulties their child is going through (in their personal lives, school, sports, etc.) or both!
That’s why it is crucial to consider help from a psychotherapist.
Here are some of the common issues seen in small children:
- Behavior Issues
- Anxiety (Identified in children as “My belly hurts”)
- Depression (Identified in children as a “gloominess” or anger)
- Peer Relationship
In our office, we use play therapy, Mindfulness, CBT, and psychotherapy with children.
Therapy treatment for children is often ONLY after one or two sessions with the parents alone.
