Bastrop Child Therapy

Child and Teen Therapy – Counselors and Therapists in Bastrop

As a parent, you never want to think about the possibility of something being “wrong” with your child. You don’t want to envision a life for them that resembles anything other than happiness and open opportunities. Unfortunately, that’s not often the case. There are numerous struggles every child faces — internally and externally — that they need help processing through, and doing so requires skills that aren’t magically bestowed upon you as soon as you become a parent.

Your job is to love and care for them, not to know the ins and outs of the human psyche. Seeking help isn’t a sign of giving up, it’s equipping your son or daughter with the skills they need to live a healthy, balanced life.

There might be some lingering, unresolved issue or trauma that is causing your child some trouble or perhaps you think he or she simply needs some help adjusting to a new home or school. You might not know why he or she has become more withdrawn, seemingly out of nowhere. But if you suspect there’s something going on — trust your paternal intuition and look into it. At Thriveworks Bastrop Child Therapy, we have talented, caring clinicians on staff who have spent their careers addressing the emotional and mental health needs of children. Let us help.

Why Pursue Child Therapy?

If you’re child appears to be dealing with anger, sadness, or simply doesn’t quite seem like his or her usual self, there’s no reason to wait and see if his or her mood will correct itself. You can find help right away.

Some common issues we see in child therapy include:

  • Life change, such as parent’s divorce
  • ADHD/ADD concerns or diagnosis
  • Eating disorders
  • Loss of a loved one
  • Emotional or psychological problems
  • Anxiety
  • Autism concerns or diagnosis
  • Abuse or neglect
  • Violent or criminal behavior
  • Addictions to drugs or alcohol
  • Disruptive behavior or poor performance in school

Bastrop Counseling & Coaching

Kris Fredericksen has helped me immensely over the past couple of years. I have progressed in leaps and bounds since I first started attending sessions with her. I have had a traumatic childhood, stage 4 cancer, and was in an abusive relationship with an extreme narcissist. After that relationship, my self-esteem was almost non-existent. Shortly after that relationship I started having sessions with Kris. Since then, I have become more stable in life and very successful in my career. I still see Kris and will continue to as life will continue to have its ups and downs. I know I can rely upon Kris to help me take on and learn from anything that comes my way. Life is a great big learning lesson and sometimes you just need someone to give you the right perspective to help you understand, to cope and to grow. Kris is the highly trained professional that I needed and still need to help me continue on that path.
