Child Therapy & Teen Counseling

One of the hardest parts of being a parent is dealing with the emotional and behavioral issues that are affecting your child’s ability to function in their everyday life. This can certainly be a sinking and hurting feeling, however child therapy and teen counseling therapy can provide a path to feeling more healthy and communicative. Certain types of child therapy work better than others all dependant upon the individual, but the most popular child therapy methodologies include, but are limited to:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – CBT, used in many other therapy fields, is a popular form of therapy that focuses on how thoughts affect feelings and behavior.

Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT) – utilizes play as the language of children and has a core belief that all children possess a natural drive towards growth.

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) – designed for young children who have behavioral problems. During parent-child play sessions in the therapy office, PCIT therapists coach parents through an earpiece, providing guidance on how to interact with their child and manage difficult behaviors.

Child-Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) – a play-based therapeutic program for parents and children aimed at reducing stress in the parent-child relationship and strengthening the parent-child bond.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) – heavily influenced by attachment theory and focuses on strengthening interpersonal relationships as a route to health.

Behavioral Therapy – utilizes principles of reinforcement to encourage positive behaviors and reduce problematic behaviors in children.

Occupational Therapy – helps eliminate barriers affecting their social, emotional, and physical functioning.
