Child and adolescent psychotherapy is a specialized approach to working with children, adolescents, and their families. Psychotherapy helps the child or adolescent understand and manage feelings more effectively, recognize and change poor coping strategies, and reexamine negative feelings of him or herself. The goal of treatment is not simply to overcome immediate struggles, but to help each child reach his or her full potential in all areas of life and to build a deep, long-lasting strength and resilience. Child and adolescent psychotherapy relies heavily upon work with parents during every phase of the treatment. In addition to helping the child return to the path of normal, healthy development, child psychotherapy aims to strengthen the relationship between the child and parents to a normal, loving and mutually gratifying one. We work to build a strong, trusting relationship with the child and family in order to become partners in understanding the child’s challenges and capabilities.
