Significant life events — such as the death of a family member, friend, or pet; entering foster or kinship care, divorce or a move; abuse; trauma; a parent leaving on military deployment; or a major illness in the family — can cause stress that might lead to problems with behavior, mood, sleep, appetite, and academic or social functioning. In some cases, it's not as clear what's caused a child to suddenly seem withdrawn, worried, stress, sulky, or tearful. But if you feel your child might have an emotional or behavioral problem or needs help coping with a difficult life event, trust your instincts.
Our services for children most often focus on Play Therapy for the child along with providing Parenting Skills Training and feedback to the parents. When indicated we might also provide Family Therapy services to the entire family.
Our therapists and counselors have received specialized training in Play Therapy, and along with other mental health professionals we have observed that play is an effective and engaging modality that specifically meets the mental health needs of children.
