Child & Adolescent Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a form of psychological treatment that involves therapeutic conversations and interactions between a therapist and a child and/or family. It provides a safe environment for individuals to process and explore what they are feeling, decrease feelings of distress and learn new ways of coping with challenging situations. Psychotherapy also helps in understanding and resolving problems, both on an individual level and family level, and change problematic behaviors.

At CERC, we provide psychotherapy for children and adolescents whose psychological or emotional difficulties are interfering with daily functioning. This process helps our clients build insight into their problems and teaches various skills to address those problems. Moreover, we work with parents to help them understand their child’s behavior and needs and address it in ways that are more effective. Psychotherapy sessions for parenting provide support, practical skills, strategies and implementing new routines.

Psychotherapy can help with several difficulties among children and adolescents including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Behavior difficulties
  • Bullying
  • Hyperactivity
  • Low self-esteem
  • Self-Harm
  • Eating Disorders
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Social Communication Disorder
  • Family Dynamics
  • Grief/bereavement
  • Parent’s separation/divorce
  • Parent guidance and support sessions
