Child & Adolescent Psychotherapy

Childhood can be such a confusing time for kids and teens because their attitudes, thoughts, and ideas are changing on a daily basis. We typically contribute this to adolescent brain development, changes in hormones, and the internal drive for more autonomy but it could also be due to peer influence or exposure to social media which can give them a skewed view of what is considered "cool," appropriate, or safe. Everything can become so much more confusing when abuse, bullying, exposure to inappropriate content, or other traumatic experiences are thrown into the mix.

Depending on the age of the child and what the child needs, they may engage in talk therapy or various forms of play-based, creative, or expressive psychotherapies to help them communicate what they may not otherwise be able to verbalize. We are able to provide in-person or virtual appointments to kids and teens depending on therapist availability. Telehealth is offered on a case-by-case basis depending on the issues presented and if we believe it would be clinically appropriate.


Our therapists give kids and teens the same respect to confidentiality as adult clients. Therapists may share brief progress updates with parents or guardians and will always discuss safety concerns. We understand that the trust built between a therapist and a client can be fragile - this is especially true with adolescents - therefore, our goal is to honor and protect this relationship while also making sure safety issues are immediately and appropriately addressed.


Issues that kiddos and teens deal with can look different than what adults deal with -

here are some issues we can help with:

  • Child abuse + neglect

  • Attachment trauma

  • Sexually reactive behavior
