Starting Child & teen counseling

What is Child & teen counseling?

Thriveworks child & teen counseling in Houston helps young individuals better understand and manage the challenges that affect their mental health. Common challenges amongst kids include behavioral issues, trauma, bullying, depression, and anxiety. All ages of children and adolescents can attend and benefit from therapy.

How does Child & teen counseling work?

Child & teen counseling works by using multiple techniques, tailored to fit the child or teen's needs — based on their age group, their challenges, and the severity of their challenges. It might involve play therapy for younger kids or cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectic behavioral therapy, art therapy, and others for varying ages. In any case, child & teen counselors have the expertise and experience to help young individuals at their level.

Is Child & teen counseling conducted in person or online?

Child & teen counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Child & teen counseling last?

The length of child & teen counseling at Thriveworks in Houston, TX depends on your child's needs as well as the goals that you and their therapist might have for them. Generally, child & teen counseling sessions will last for several months.

Need more help deciding?

The onset of a mental illness often presents itself in childhood. With the rapid changes that happen in your child during their early years, it is sometimes hard to know what is considered a typical behavior change and what could be an indicator of something more serious.

Child counseling can help children who are experiencing the onset of a mental health disorder and take the uncertainty out of the equation. If you would like to set your child up with a therapist, reach out to Thriveworks Counseling in Houston, TX. We can offer child therapy as soon as today or tomorrow! Just call our office to get started.

How Can I Tell If My Child’s Problems Are Serious?

Not every change in behavior is a link to a more serious problem. Children, like adults, can react to a stressful situation with a behavior that’s out of the ordinary but this does not mean there’s any indication of a more serious underlying diagnosis. For example, the death of a loved one can cause a child to become preoccupied with the idea of death, but it doesn’t necessarily mean they are showing signs of a mood disorder.

However, there are times when certain behaviors can indicate a possible mental health concern. They include:

  • When the behavior is seen across a number of different environments, such as at school, at home, and with peers
  • A return to behaviors that are not age-appropriate, such as bedwetting
  • Self-destructive behavior, such as head-banging
  • Significant changes in sleep patterns or appetite
  • Expressing fear for things or situations that never used to cause a fearful reaction

How Can a Child Counselor Help?

If you feel as though your child may be suffering from a mental health disorder, a child counselor at Thriveworks can be helpful in assessing the type of diagnosis and possible treatments. A counselor is trained in spotting the early signs of a disorder and providing the best care right from the onset of symptoms.

Having a trained professional on your side can give you peace of mind and take the guessing out of the signs you may be observing. If you are still unsure of what signs to look for or would like to book an appointment, talk to one of our child counselors today to find out how they can help you and your family.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
