Child Psychotherapy

"Children do learn what they live. Then they grow up to live what they've learned."

Dorothy Nolte

As parents, we care deeply about the happiness and well-being of our children. And when our children hit the rock in their path and struggle, it can be challenging for us as parents, and what we thought as a happy childhood can turn into a nightmare of frustration, anger, and even depression.

​No matter how hard we try, our children's challenges often seem too huge for us to handle on our own. We can't seem to break through that impenetrable layer of denial and isolation that seems to surround them when they're in a crisis state. We want to help them in regaining their sense of stability and normalcy again.

​When a child is experiencing psychological difficulties, they are not always able to articulate what they are feeling. This can lead to them appearing moody or withdrawn at school or home, making them difficult children for parents, teachers, and other adults who care for them. The effects of these problems can linger into adulthood and affect self-esteem, adaptation to change, and the ability to cultivate satisfying and rewarding relationships. Child psychotherapy can work wonders on children who are struggling to voice their thoughts and feelings or find comfort in the world around them.

Child Psychotherapy: What to expect and how it works

The sessions usually start with a virtual/ in-person session with parents to obtain

background information. An in-depth interview with parents and observation of

younger children, as well as infants' play activities, will help determine whether to

simply monitor the situation or initiate psychological treatment.

Following the assessment, treatment interventions will take place. Depending on the child's needs and the family, psychological treatment for children can take many different forms. For younger children, play therapy is frequently the treatment of choice. During play therapy sessions with children under the age of three, parents are invited to participate as participants or co-therapists.

By utilizing the power of play, the therapist establishes a trusting and supportive relationship with your child. By observing the therapy process, parents can learn how to form bonds with their children and strengthen the effectiveness of therapy at home.

Our children will grow up in a world that is becoming increasingly challenging and complicated. Early intervention and, if necessary, therapy can improve their chances of flourishing rather than floundering.
