Evidenced-Based Therapy for Children

Counseling can be a valuable tool for children and teens experiencing anxiety. It can help them to understand their feelings, develop coping skills, improve their self-esteem, build relationships, and develop strategies for success.

  • Understand their feelings:  Counseling can help children and teens to understand their feelings and to learn how to express them in a healthy way. This can be important for children and teens who may often feel overwhelmed by their emotions.
  • Develop coping skills:  Counseling can help children and teens to develop coping skills to help them deal with difficult situations. This can include skills such as relaxation techniques, problem-solving, and communication.
  • Improve their self-esteem:  Counseling can help children and teens to improve their self-esteem. This can be important for children and teens who may often feel insecure or inadequate.
  • Build relationships:  Counseling can help children and teens to build relationships with their family, friends, and teachers. This can be important for children and teens who may often have difficulty making and maintaining relationships.
  • Develop strategies for success:  Counseling can help children and teens to develop strategies for success in school, at home, and in their social lives. This can help them to reach their full potential.

Here are some of the specific types of counseling that can be helpful for children and teens:

  • Individual counseling:  Individual counseling is a one-on-one session between a child or teen and a counselor. This type of counseling can be helpful for children and teens who are struggling with a specific issue, such as anxiety, depression, or anger management.
  • Family counseling:  Family counseling is a session between a child or teen, their parents, and a counselor. This type of counseling can be helpful for families who are struggling with communication, conflict resolution, or parenting issues.
  • Group counseling:  Group counseling is a session with a group of children or teens who are facing similar challenges. This type of counseling can be helpful for children and teens who feel isolated or alone, and who can benefit from the support of others who understand what they are going through.
  • Play Therapy:  Play therapy is different than traditional talk therapy in that the therapist helps children to address and resolve their own problems using play. Play is a natural medium used by children to communicate. Through play, children learn about themselves and their relationships in the world around them. Play therapy gives children opportunities to learn to communicate with others, identify and express their feelings, and increase emotional regulation. Play therapy also helps children to work on changing their behavior and begin to develop coping and problem-solving skills that can be used later in life.
