Is your child struggling?
Are they exhibiting non age appropriate behavior? Are they lashing out? Struggling to make friends? Have a sudden change in behavior? Have they gone through something traumatic? Symptoms for common disorders that seem easy to recognize in adults (like depression, anxiety, PTSD) often present differently in children. It can be confusing and overwhelming to figure out if your child needs help and where to go for that help. As a parent it can feel like you are helpless, angry, scared, frustrated, isolated, and depressed when your child is struggling.
Fortunately, you don't have to face these struggles alone. At Clarity Counseling, LLC we are trained professionals who can assess if a behavior or struggle is developmentally appropriate or something more. We will walk alongside you and your child and work to develop skills to deal with any difficulty that they are facing. Our goal is to empower both you and your child to deal with the struggles they may be facing.
What does therapy for a child actually look like?
What does therapy for a child actually look like? It can vary depending on the age of the child. An assessment is always a good starting point and, based on the results, a treatment plan would be created. The subsequent sessions would depend on age appropriate goals and focus on their current struggles. Treatment often involves play. Play is our first language and kids are often able to process through play in ways they can not through talk therapy. The play we do in the sessions is not just for fun, we use play to work towards your child's goal. Child therapy may also involve your participation, we believe in the power parents have in their children's lives, so we want you to be a part of the treatment! Making small changes at home can make for big lasting changes in a child's life.
Our clinicians are passionate about helping children make changes that can last a lifetime. We honor the trust you and your child are putting in us by coming to us.
