Does your child or teen struggle to cope with the demands of his/her life?
If so, your child may benefit from behavioral treatment. Therapy allows for kids to share in a safe and supportive environment while learning effective tools for coping with social, academic, personal, and familial stressors. A therapist can serve as a trusted confidant, a guide, a teacher, and a coach. This relationship helps kids reflect on ideas and decisions and can guide them to be effective and happy by learning positive skills to cope with life’s demands.
