Child Psychologist & Child Therapy
Psychology & Therapy for Children
We offer child psychologist & child therapy counseling services from a professional, expert, and friendly staff.
Parents and/or caregivers are met first with the clinician to discuss the identified problem and to obtain a detailed history of your child. The child is then seen individually by the therapist, typically for several sessions, to allow the therapist to observe the child’s behavior, develop rapport and allow the therapist to form treatment recommendations to be shared with parents.
At our office, while confidentiality is maintained between child and therapist, parents are kept in the treatment “loop” and will be informed of progress in therapy and treatment recommendations. If a recommendation for longer-term therapy is made for your child, the therapy may be “talk-based” (if your child is an appropriate candidate for talk therapy), or may be play-based, whichever is more effective to meet your child’s needs.
Child Psychology & Child Therapy with children incorporates a “person-centered” and strength-based approach, with interventions based upon these strengths. Effective therapy will facilitate your child’s potential, and will create a safe and caring space for your child to express himself.
