Helping Children And Adolescents Find Balance In Their Lives
Being a child or adolescent in today's society is not an easy task. From navigating new friendships, relationships and experiences to balancing school, sports and other extracurricular activities, the world can feel pretty overwhelming at times, especially when you have been around for only a decade or so. These changes and challenges can lead children and adolescents to feel like they are on a rollercoaster of emotions.
Worry, frustration, and sadness are all normal emotions that children and adolescents experience during the highs and lows of growing up. However, when these emotions start to cause behavioral issues and unhealthy thought patterns, they become problematic and should be addressed.
As a licensed clinical therapist, I work with children and adolescents to find balance in their lives and thrive in their everyday activities. I also provide assistance, education, and support to parents or guardians to make the therapeutic process a collaborative one. Navigating the world at a young age is a very big task, but together, we can help your child or adolescent feel happier and healthier again.
