    Children & Teens

Children today have a lot of pressure on them. They are expected to excel in all areas; they are scheduled every minute of the day; they hear and see things instantly from all over the world, well before they are able to understand them. And the internet creates a permanent record of all their juvenile mistakes. 

If you have noticed any of the following, your child might benefit from therapy:
  • They have undergone a major personality change 
  • They have stopped hanging out with their old friends 
  • They have become irritable 
  • Their grades have dropped significantly 
  • They have no interest int heir favorite activities
  •  They tell you they are depressed
  •  They have experienced a major loss or upset 
  •  You notice a lot of cuts and scratches, possible burn marks, scarring or other possible forms of self-injury.
You know your child—if something seems wrong, it probably is. Therapy is a safe place where children can be themselves without having to perform. Remember, even if you are a great parent—sometimes even because you are—your child may not share what’s bothering them. If you are not sure if there is a problem or not, give me a call and let’s talk about it.
