Child Therapy in Littleton, CO – Counselors for Children and Families
As a parent, the last thing that you want to hear is that your child is hurting. Even so much as a scraped knee causes us pain. Your child’s emotional distress, then, can be even more challenging for you to bear. Their burden is our burden, and we’re oftentimes at a loss for how to make things better.
You don’t have to have all of the answers. It’s okay. Your job is to love them and make sure they are cared for as needed. Mental health is a part of that — just like physical health. You take your child to the medical doctor when they are feeling sick. You take your child to see a skilled, professional counselor when they’re feeling blue. The licensed child therapists at Thriveworks in Littleton, CO can work with children to address complex emotions and behaviors by meeting them at their own developmental level. Our mental health professionals serve as compassionate guides and supports for the entire family.
What Does a Child Therapist Treat?
Everyone can benefit from talking to an objective person about their challenges and troubles, even more so children who may not yet have fully developed communication skills. If you child seems unhappy (or even if everything appears to be okay), a licensed child therapist at Thriveworks in Littleton, CO can help equip them with the skills and knowledge necessary for navigating life’s challenges.
There are many reasons your child might benefit from child therapy. Common issues your child might be facing include:
- Bullying at school
- Depression or anxiety
- Difficulty focusing or paying attention
- Learning issues
- Gender issues
- Obsessions or compulsive behaviors
- Sadness after loss of a family member
- Life transition issues
- Difficulty in social situations
- Behavioral problems at home or school
- Anger management
- Autism concerns
Child therapists are trained to communicate with children about these issues in their own language, sometimes using play therapy or another age-appropriate modality. And caregivers are always closely involved in treatment, learning how to reinforce a child’s strengths at homes.
