Child Therapy

You feel like you’ve lost control.

Your preschooler or school-age child is anxious, acting out, or has withdrawn. Your teenager seems angry, closed off, or sad.

Temper tantrums or complete shutdowns have become the norm, and you find yourself in screaming matches with your child or teen. They don’t listen anymore.

Maybe something sad or scary has happened – divorce, school bullying or violence, or losing a loved one.

The question you keep asking yourself is, “Who is in charge here?”

Your nerves and your temper are on edge all the time. You wonder what you are doing wrong or if this is just normal behavior.

You don’t know how to help your child.

You’ve tried everything you can think of – reading books, asking others for advice, and consulting the Internet.

Rewards charts, choices, punishments, and consequences don’t seem to work. Your child is still struggling.

You are ashamed to admit that you don’t know what to do, and you feel like a terrible parent.

You don’t know where to turn to next.

Help is here.

Children and teens, just like adults, need a person to help them understand their emotions and what to do with them.

Often they express pain through their behavior.

Sometimes the person who can help can’t be their parent.

At The Journey, your child and teen will have a safe place to explore their feelings and learn how to manage them.

Therapy for young people.

I utilize proven approaches to work with your child and with you to help them develop new ways of thinking about themselves.

Therapy allows the processing of sadness, worries, or trauma – helping your child develop skills to become emotionally stronger.

The focus will be on helping your child change their thoughts, feelings, and actions in a more positive direction while processing their big emotions.

As a parent partner, I will help you reclaim your toddler, school-age child, or teen by helping you develop better approaches for managing behavior and communicating with your child.
