Behavioral issues including irritability, refusal to cooperate, lack of concentration, hyper-vigilance, hyperactivity, bossiness, tattling, lying, stealing and concealing can indicate an underlying problem.
Children often lack the verbal and emotional regulation skills needed to express their feelings. Add that to the guilt, shame and fear that comes from believing something may have been their fault, and you have one hurting little kiddo.
Children who struggle at school may be absent more often and/or prone to suspensions, leading to academic struggles and/or SARB action. See the School Counseling page.
Child Therapy enters the child's world of play to help him or her identify and process grief, work through trauma issues, express feelings, and develop new coping skills. Therapeutic methods include child directed play, sand tray, art, music, story telling, and a variety of other creative, expressive modalities.
We also offer a Multi-Sensory Environment (MSE) for use in treatment of a variety of childhood concerns including trauma recovery, anxiety, depression, ADHD and more.
If you think you or someone you love would like to receive Child Therapy, please call.
