Therapy for Children & Adolescents
Do you have a sense that your child is more difficult than others? Is your parental instinct telling you that your child needs help?
Approaches for child therapy can vary broadly across the spectrum. Our work with children focuses mostly on behavior and the underlying factors. When a child is displaying an inappropriate or undesirable behavior, we work to find out what function the behavior is serving. We then work closely with the family to put a new plan in place to create behaviors that will replace the maladaptive processes.
We work in a very concrete way to develop a plan for the child and family to achieve reachable goals with ease and competence in all settings. Whether it be challenging behaviors or difficulty in social situations, we help clients (children and parents) achieve a sense of optimism about the future and confidence that they are heading in the right direction.
