Just like adults, children often experience psychological issues that are difficult to manage alone. A child therapist can help kids and teens work through specific circumstances, feelings, or disorders that interfere with the way they think, behave, and learn.
Reasons to Seek Therapy for Kids and Teens
Many children deal with personal struggles in their family and social spheres. Because they have a hard time processing or communicating their concerns, they often demonstrate extreme emotions such as sadness, anger, apathy, or anxiety. Certain conditions can also negatively impact their psychological well-being, making it difficult for young children and teens to succeed at school, make friends, or feel good about themselves. Through therapy, children can learn to share their thoughts and feelings, set boundaries, and work through problems in a healthy, constructive way.
Counseling and Therapy Services We Offer
Kids and teens can benefit from a number of counseling services, including:
- Play Therapy: It’s not always easy for young children to verbally explain their feelings. By allowing them to draw, play, imagine, and create, they can comfortably express themselves while we observe and teach them to overcome obstacles in a practical way.
- Social Skills Development: Socializing in the classroom can be difficult, which can affect behavior. We work with kids and teens to encourage skills that translate to success at school, in friendships, and beyond.
- ADHD/ADD: For kids and teens with these common behavioral disorders, we provide management resources to facilitate academic and social success.
At Cross The Bridge Counseling, a therapist will work with your child to improve on coping, communication, and problem-solving skills that foster prosperity and confidence. Contact us today at (845) 342-5789 to schedule a consultation.
