Starting

Need more help deciding?

When we think back on our childhood, we tend to remember the good times we had playing with friends, running around at the park, soaking in the carefree fun. We forget that being a kid wasn’t always carefree fun. The truth is that growing up is hard. Childhood and adolescence come with unique challenges that shape our personalities, our views of the world, and ultimately ourselves as adults. This makes overcoming the hurdles we face as kids and teens important to the quality and longevity of our lives.

“You can do the impossible because you have been through the unimaginable.” –Christine Rasmussen

The thing is that overcoming challenges isn’t always easy. In fact, doing so can be really difficult, especially as a child or teenager who is still growing and learning. Fortunately, there is a solution to this problem: child therapy. Child therapists can assist kids and teens with overcoming challenges that threaten their wellbeing and, ultimately, help them grow well through life.

If your child is struggling with the unique challenges that we often face at a young age—say, bullying, making friends, adjusting after the loss of a grandparent—consider setting them up with a child therapist or psychologist at Thriveworks Bethesda. We have therapists and counselors who specialize in helping young individuals grow well through life. And they are ready to start helping your child today. Give us a call at (240) 513-3093 to schedule an appointment or hear more about our services.

Important Conversations in Child Therapy

Watching our children go through difficult challenges and struggle with tough feelings is hard. And the reality is that sometimes we can’t offer them the help that they need. Why? In some instances, because they don’t feel comfortable talking to their parents or close family members about their problems. In other instances, we just don’t have the expertise or experience to help. The good news is that the child therapists and psychologists at Thriveworks Bethesda do have the expertise and the experience to help. Here are a few examples of the children and situations they help with:

  • Kids who are nervous about going to a new school
  • Children who are being bullied by their classmates
  • Teens who feel depressed or anxious
  • Kids who are struggling to make friends
  • Children who act out repeatedly in class
  • Teens who have experienced trauma
  • Kids who just lost a close family member

Child therapy seems like a drastic or last resort kind-of-decision to some, but we don’t think that’s the case. Here at Thriveworks Bethesda, we believe that everybody can benefit from working with a skilled therapist, counselor, or life coach. Even if your child isn’t facing a serious challenge, they can still find value in working with a therapist or psychologist. For example, they could learn tools for communicating more effectively, creating healthy relationships, building confidence, and much more.

Scheduling Child Therapy at Thriveworks Bethesda

The therapists at Thriveworks Bethesda are highly trained mental health professionals with an impressive amount of knowledge and experience related to helping kids thrive. Their primary mission is to help their young clients properly manage the challenges they may be facing and equip them with necessary tools for living a happy, healthy life.

Does this sound like something you think that your child could benefit from? You can call (240) 513-3093 to schedule an appointment with one of our specialists today. A scheduling specialist will answer your call, ask you a few basic questions, and then help you set up an appointment with a child therapist or psychologist near you at your earliest convenience. Keep in mind that we do offer evening and weekend appointments! Because we understand that day-time, weekly appointments aren’t always possible (especially when you throw children into the mix).

We look forward to hearing from you soon and we are excited to get to know your child or teen. You can trust that they are in good hands. Call Thriveworks Bethesda today.

I couldn't have asked for a better therapist. Nina Zuriff is such a good fit for me. She is very knowledgeable and compassionate. She has really helped me cope with this very hard time I am currently experiencing and makes herself reachable should an emergency arise. I am very happy I selected Nina. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
