Have you noticed
a change in
your child?

Let Us Help

Are you WORRIED about changes in your child or adolescent’s behavior or mood?

If you have noticed a change in your child or adolescent that concerns you, it may be that he/she is struggling with the stress that comes along with changing bodies, changing expectations and a growing world.

Individual or group therapy for children or adolescents can be very helpful and rewarding. Therapy can provide a place to EXPLORE FEELINGS, be heard and UNDERSTOOD, and develop TOOLS and SKILLS to combat depression and/or anxiety, deal with social situations or better handle homework and academic pressures.

Your child can also learn to UNDERSTAND AND COMMUNICATE their feelings and needs to YOU, AS THEIR PARENTS and to other significant people in their lives.

THERAPEUTIC techniques for children and adolescents include:

  • Traditional “talk” therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Play therapy
  • Sand tray therapy

Relaxation and stress-reduction skills along with emotion regulation skills can also be taught which are extremely useful in reducing many of the symptoms of anxiety and depression.

If you are ready to help your child and make the process of growing up a little easier, please contact Lotus Point Wellness today.
