At Relational Psych, we provide a welcoming therapeutic space for children ages 6-12 to gain relief, clarity, and lasting growth. Our child therapists are trained to meet your child where they are developmentally and support them through talk therapy, play, and creative arts.
What is Child Therapy?
Child therapy is a form of talk therapy specifically tailored for children. It provides a safe environment for children to process worries, build skills, and work through difficulties with the support of a child psychologist or therapist.
Some common goals of child therapy include:
Helping children cope with life changes like divorce or moves
Working through grief, loss, or trauma
Treating childhood anxiety or depression
Improving anger management or impulse control
Building self-esteem and social skills
Managing learning or attention issues
Understanding new diagnoses like ADHD, autism, or health issues
The Benefits of Child Therapy
Therapy can lead to many benefits for children when they receive support during their youth. Some advantages include:
Processing confusing emotions
Developing healthy coping strategies
Improving family and peer relationships
Learning to understand feelings and experiences
Building communication skills
Preventing more serious issues later in life
With support from a caring therapist, children often experience relief, insights, and positive changes over time.
Our Child-Focused Therapy Approach
Our child therapists take the time to understand each child's unique inner world. We use play, art, and conversation to meet your child where they are developmentally. Our therapists can offer a new relationship with the child where they can play, be messy, be heard, be attended to, and be cared for.
We care about understanding the child's experiences and providing developmentally appropriate ways for them to grow in their own understanding of these experiences. We provide a non-judgmental space for both the child and the family system to grow together. Over time, at your child's pace, therapy supports growth, awareness, and change. Relief comes from no longer feeling alone in difficulties.
We also provide parents with guidance on meeting their child's needs. Ongoing collaboration helps us support your child's growth both inside and outside of therapy sessions.
If your child is struggling with emotions, behaviors, or changes, therapy can help. To learn more about our child therapy services or schedule a consultation, schedule a free consultation call with our friendly care coordinator, Ally. She'll walk you through the process of getting started and answer any initial questions you might have.
We look forward to working with your child on their journey toward healing.
