Young children and adolescents can benefit from therapy in several ways. There are times when children or adolescents need a private space to process their thoughts and feelings free from perceived judgment of parents or peers. Although it might make sense for children or adolescents to meet one-on-one with their therapist, all of our therapists believe the best opportunities to heal comes with the collaboration of families.
Family Therapy may evolve from individual child or adolescent therapy. We are often called on to help children with anxiety, grief and loss, sadness, or other difficult developmental hurdles.
Children and Adolescents can also benefit from therapy in a group format. Group therapy is facilitated by a licensed therapist. Group members benefit from sharing and learning from the experiences of their peers. Healing occurs at many levels.
