Anxiety, depression, trauma, school avoidance, difficulties with emotion regulation, low self-esteem, social anxiety, anger management…kids and teens are dealing with so much today, especially as they begin to navigate how to find a return to normalcy as we emerge from a worldwide pandemic and the effects that “new normal” had on all of us.
If your child is dealing with any mental health challenge, or just having a tough time navigating through their days, you may have thought about finding a therapist, but may not have known where to start.
The word ‘psychotherapy’ can sound intimidating. If you have never gone to therapy before, the idea of sitting on that infamous couch and revealing your innermost thoughts to a stranger may sound embarrassing. You may question whether your child even need to see a therapist at all
But the fact is, engaging in therapy with the right provider can improve your quality of life. According to the American Psychological Association, about 75% of people who enter psychotherapy say they benefit from it, and research shows they’re better able to function in their day-to-day activities.
Therapy is not just for young people facing a mental health diagnosis. Regular therapy sessions can be beneficial for pretty much everyone dealing with life! Everyday stresses, social anxiety, school situations, family conflicts…a well trained and caring therapist can help your child/teen successfully get through whatever roadblocks they may encounter in everyday life.
