Children and Adolescents

All children experience some degree of emotional, social, or behavioral difficulty as they age and develop. Some children are more prone or exposed to genetic, environmental, or psychological factors that impede on their development and ability to tolerate stress.  At times, this can negatively impact their mood, school performance, behavior, ability to make and maintain friendships, or overall well-being.  When children or adolescents experience symptoms that persist; or that significantly impact on their self-esteem, behavior, or overall functioning at school or at home, it can be very beneficial to consult with professional support. If left untreated, symptoms may persist, become worse, or may continue into adulthood, transforming into unhealthy lifestyle decisions or more serious mental health disorders.

Child and adolescent psychotherapy can assist your child to develop coping skills to manage anxiety, stress, depression, or other behavioral challenges. Through the use of evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, your child can learn to change distressing thoughts, emotions, or behaviors that may be holding them back. Family counseling can also support parents to strengthen parenting skills to help manage behavioral challenges such as impulsive or oppositional behaviors and learn ways to best support your child to develop self-regulation and mindfulness-based strategies to manage undesirable behavior.
