Child Therapy in North Charleston, SC—Child Therapists, Counselors

Child Therapy in North Charleston, SC—Child Therapists, Counselors

When we are children, we get to delight in fun and play. Those are our primary responsibilities, in fact. We’re expected to giggle, to be silly, to be imaginative. And adults look upon us with jealousy and admiration—they wish that they could be in our shoes once more, as think about all of their responsibilities and stressors.

Here’s the thing: While childhood is often majorly a time of fun and play, it is also challenging at times. As we continue to learn and grow, we encounter problems along the way: some of us are bullied by our peers, some of us must grieve our parents’ divorce, and some of us struggle with learning disabilities and/or mental illnesses. Us adults forget about these challenges—until we see that our children or teens are struggling themselves.

“A child’s mental health is just as important as their physical health and deserves the same quality of support. No one would feel embarrassed about seeking help for a child if they broke their arm—and we really should be equally ready to support a child coping with emotional difficulties.” –Kate Middleton

If you recognize that your child or teenager is struggling to work through any given challenge, consider calling Thriveworks North Charleston, SC child therapy. We have child therapists, counselors, and psychologists on staff. These professionals have skills, training, tools, and experience related to helping kids and teenagers. Your child therapist will be sure to help your child maintain or improve their mental and emotional health as they navigate this crucial stage of development that is growing up. To schedule an appointment, just call (843) 261-5949. We’ll pair your child with a caring, skilled professional.

How Can Child Therapy Help My Child?

Child therapists, counselors, and psychologists serve to help and guide children in times of need. Their main mission is to assist your child and provide them with the right tools to grow well through their life. We know that sometimes kids and teens don’t feel comfortable opening up to family members about how they’re feeling or what they’re going through. In these instances, we can serve as that nonjudgmental individual to help them through it. Now, it is important to familiarize yourself with the signs that your child might be struggling. These signs include:

  • They suddenly withdraw from their friend group
  • They have a change in appetite
  • They appear down or depressed
  • They refuse to go to school
  • They have trouble staying or falling asleep
  • They become irritable or have a change in mood

If the above describe your child or teen, they might be going through a rough patch. Don’t worry: Our child therapists are happy to step in and guide them through whatever challenge they have encountered.

How Does Child Therapy Work?

Your Thriveworks North Charleston, SC child therapist will get to know your child and their specific needs. Then, they will design an individualized treatment plan just for them. This plan will help your child or teen work through their feelings, adjust during big life changes, and ultimately live better. Here are common issues seen in child therapy:

  1. Mental illness, like depression or anxiety
  2. Learning disabilities
  3. Adjusting after a major life change (e.g., move to a new town)
  4. Building healthy relationships
  5. Grieving the death or the loss of a loved one

These issues are commonly seen in child therapy at Thriveworks North Charleston. That said, we certainly didn’t list every problem that children and teens face, nor could we! Whatever your child or teen is facing, we’re happy to help them navigate their way through it.

Thriveworks Counseling Charleston (North)

Emily Frichtl is amazing

I am a survivor of childhood trauma. I've struggled with depression most of my life. Emily Frichtl has helped me in so many ways. I felt safe with her and over time I learned to trust her, which was hard for me. I still have a lot of work to do in learning to live with the things I've been through but I wouldn't be in a more accepting head space without the work we've done. I highly recommend her.

I have worked with Jennifer Brown for a number of years and have found her to be caring, compassionate, and conscientious. She has an empathetic personality and truly cares for her clients and wants what is best for them. One of her greatest skills is her ability to ask "the right question" to help you find YOUR correct answer. Her support during the time my Mom was passing helped me get through a very difficult time. No hesitancy in recommending.
