Child & Adolescent Issues

As a parent it can be very hard to watch your child struggle with stress, anxiety, sadness, or irritability.

As children move through the developmental stages of life, emotional and behavioral challenges can occur. Furthermore, these challenges can be heightened with the arrival of a new sibling, peer pressure, family discord, etc.

Child/adolescent therapy provides a safe space that encourages emotional expression and can help alleviate problematic behaviors.

Common signs that suggest your child may be struggling
  • Behavioral problems at home or school
  • Excessive anxiety, sadness, or irritability
  • Disturbances in eating or sleeping patterns
  • Relationship struggles with peers
  • Difficulty coping with loss or family transitions
