Children sometimes learn to hiding their emotions, which allow for buildup and eventually explosion. It can be a quiet or loud explosion. Parents and caregivers can do their best to meet many needs of their children. Sometimes it can be too much, and the help of a professional is needed. Our therapist is sensitive to the parent-child relationship and offers inclusive psychotherapy. The therapist develops a healthy-trusting connection with the child and the parent while honoring confidentiality. At Essential Journey Counseling, children and teenagers are invited into a safe environment of understanding, their feelings and experiences are normalized. Healing for children/teens helps them develop a healthy connection to their thoughts and feelings. We are clear to maintain healthy boundaries between parenting and psychotherapy.
One of our specialties is counseling for children and teenagers. From anxiety to depression, trauma, teenage relationships, school and everything in-between, we’ll meet them where they are and learn more about what they’re going through. Once we’ve connected, we can support them with exploring the pros and cons of their choices and help them make healthy sound decisions.
Counseling for children and teens is unique and requires a therapist with the ability to relate to young people. We know how to be with them in challenging times without taking over to solve their struggles. Most teens want and need the support of their parents when making a decision. We understand this and support them with finding balance between independence and dependence. We’ll teach them how to respectfully honor themselves and those that love and care for them during this challenging transition in their life.
Our therapists deliver an unbiased approach, using powerful techniques to help clients move forward – from grief & loss, to play therapy to life changes and more. Whether your child is the victim of bullying, sexual identity issues, self-harmful behavior, eating disorders, poor school performance, or something else, no situation is impossible to overcome.
