It can be difficult to know when it’s the right time to bring your child into therapy. Most kids have ups and downs, but sometimes they need some extra help. Child therapists are able to delve into issues on what children experience, whether it be behavioral, emotional or social. Child therapy is suited to emphasize positive development while addressing negative issues and symptoms. Some children may need therapy for things related to trauma, neglect, divorce or bullying, while others may just need some guidance on how to build self-esteem and develop positive coping skills. Participating in therapy helps kids cope better, do better and communicate better. Therapy can help bring relief to both children and their loved ones

Anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma affect many children, but they often don’t have a reliable outlet for their big feelings.
