Individual Therapy for Children and Teens

Individual Therapy for Children and Teens

Your child may be a good candidate for individual therapy. Evidence-based psychotherapy has been shown to improve children’s feelings of self-efficacy, strengthen social relationships, and help children function more effectively in their environments. We predominantly draw from cognitive-behavioral techniques when working with children, but also utilize an integrative approach.

Child-focused individual therapy could include:

  • Individual social skills training

  • Therapies focused on helping children cope with anxiety, anger and depression

  • Strategies aimed at reducing impulsivity, inattention and hyperactivityE

  • Emotional regulation training

  • Self-management or coping strategies, fostering greater independence

  • Adjusting to life changes (i.e. parental divorce or separation)
