Understanding Child Therapy

In child therapy, your child and their therapist will embark on a journey of self-discovery and emotional growth. Therapy provides nurturing, neutral and supportive space for children to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. By using age-appropriate therapies and activities like play, talk, art, movement and creative expression, our dedicated child therapists and BCBA providers help children navigate challenges, build coping skills, and develop a deeper understanding of themselves.

We focus on attachment-based child therapy, )even in ABA / Autism based interventions) which emphasizes building strong, healthy relationships as the foundation for emotional well-being. Our tailored sessions empower children to manage big emotions, foster healthy relationships, and thrive in all areas of life.

Does My Child Need Therapy?

As a parent, it’s natural to wonder if your child could benefit from therapy. Understanding the signs can help guide you on this journey. Is your child experiencing sudden changes in behavior, such as becoming withdrawn or unusually irritable? Are they struggling with academic performance or showing signs of anxiety or depression? Difficulty in social interactions or experiencing traumatic events can also indicate a need for extra support. By recognizing these signs and reaching out for help, you can provide your child with the tools and resources they need to navigate life’s challenges with resilience and confidence.
