We believe children’s behaviors serve a purpose and are best understood as a means of communication. Our goal is to understand the underlying struggles contributing to emotional and behavioral difficulties at home and/or school and to help children find more adaptive ways of getting their needs met.
There are a multitude of reasons why a child or teen may benefit from entering therapy:
How therapy can help
Each child’s experience is unique and special. The foundation of successful therapeutic work with children is a genuine and compassionate relationship with their therapist. From there, our therapeutic approach is developed to directly address the specific needs of your child. We partner with each child’s support system to ensure a collaborative approach.
Adolescence is a particularly challenging time to navigate in a young person’s life. A combination of internal and external pressures can converge, creating many challenges. Therapy can serve as a judgement-free space for adolescents to be heard, understood and challenged. The goals of the client and the family are addressed in the work to promote successful outcomes and lasting benefits.
Our therapists are committed to building a genuine and sincere connection with kiddos of all ages. We value the power of play and expressive therapies as a means of allowing children to externalize and process their internal worlds and experiences. Our team of Registered Play Therapy Supervisors and Therapists brings experience and expertise to their work with children and adolescents.
