Child-Adolescent Therapy

In today’s fast paced world, adolescents, children, and their families face new challenges. The strong influence of social media, ever changing technologies, new expectations, and a unique youth culture can make their lives more stressful than generations past.

We are here to help them navigate this new world, so they can explore their unique experiences in a safe environment and without judgment. To get them started in a process of inquiring about who they are, this journey will increase their self- awareness, self-knowledge, self-acceptance and their ability to self- regulate.

We believe in their innate capacity to make their lives joyful and productive, and we believe in the power that families have to support this change and our goal is to form a coalition to work toward health, happiness and self-fulfillment. We provide individual and family therapy to children and adolescents experiencing a diverse number of challenges such as stress, bullying/mean-girls issues, depression, trauma, ADD/ADHD, loss, anxiety, date abuse, identity issues, divorce/separation or just having a hard time with the process of growing up.

Behavioral issues related to childhood and adolescence can be confusing and frustrating for parents, we work collaboratively with parents/ caretakers and if needed school staff, not only to discover the root cause for the challenging behaviors, but also to apply required strategies to create desired behavioral changes.Our style of work is accessible, collaborative, and humorous.

We want our families to leave each session with a new insight or a skill to practice outside the office. We want you and your child to feel comfortable working with a group of therapists that not only have the training but have also experienced many of the same challenges while parenting.
