Online Child Therapy in Delaware—Therapists and Counselors for Kids and Teens
Annica’s mom has noticed recently that she has a low self-esteem. She always apologizes for things she doesn’t need to, always says how she’s going to fail even though she’s extremely gifted, and even thinks of herself as ugly. Her mom constantly reassures her that she is beautiful and worthy, however, Annica still struggles to see herself that way.
Clay’s grandma passed away recently and he is struggling to come to terms with his new reality. He still refers to his grandma as if she is still here and can’t acknowledge that she has passed on. His mom and dad have tried explaining to him what that means and don’t know how to help him move forward in his grieving process.
Our children need to be taught how to think, not what to think.” – Unknown

Child Therapy: Conversations and Tools to Help Kids
As a parent, it’s hard to watch your child go through something that you have no control over. No amount of love and care can fix all of the issues they face. While we’d like to think that it’s possible, sometimes the help of a psychologist is the little extra push they need to overcome their obstacles. Child therapy is similar to adult therapy which is designed to help kids and teens manage mental illnesses, heal from trauma, cope with changes, and more. These things are hard enough for adults, let alone the young minds of our youth. Child therapy is used to make a meaningful difference in your child’s life and help them break down what they are feeling into more manageable pieces.
Our child counselors have the training, education, and experience to work with young children, teens, and adolescents. To be able to connect with kids of all different ages and backgrounds, they use a variety of different methods and techniques. Some different methods you could expect to see be used with your child include:
- Play therapy
- Traditional talk therapy
- Behavioral therapy
- Stress management
- Anger management
- Family therapy
- Art therapy
- Coping mechanisms
- Communication skills
Each method provides different benefits to the child. As we understand that each child and teen is unique, we are dedicated to using different methods to find what works best for them. If one thing isn’t working, there are dozens of other ways we can connect with your child on a deeper level. In addition, we will teach you and your child’s other caregivers additional tools to use in home. Better communication and understanding on both ends are essential in overcoming tough challenges.
Should My Child Receive Therapy? Signs and Symptoms
As we have briefly touched on, children and teens experience difficult situations and challenges that they have a hard time dealing with. They can benefit from working with a therapist to better manage their symptoms, understand their emotions, heal, and learn how to cope moving forward. Here are a few reasons why your child might need the guidance of a child counselor:
- Grief and loss
- Learning disabilities
- Low self-esteem
- Anger problems
- Behavioral problems at home and/or at school
- Trouble making friends
- Coping with a major life change
- Parent or parents in the military
- Eating disorders
- Insomnia or hypersomnia
- Stress management
Here at Thriveworks Delaware Counseling, we are able to help kids with this list of issues and much, much more. Even if you aren’t sure what your child is dealing with exactly, we can help pinpoint their emotions and provide them with coping mechanisms. Our primary goal is to help you and your child get the help and support you need.
