Child Therapy and Teen Counseling—Counselors and Therapists in Orlando, FL

Child Therapy and Teen Counseling—Counselors and Therapists in Orlando, FL

As adults, we know that society puts pressure on us every day. Work responsibilities, family commitments, and societal pressures; expectations that cause stress, worry and feelings of inadequacy. What we oftentimes don’t realize is that society places those same pressures on our youth. Child therapists and teen counselors know that this has a direct impact on the self-esteem and self-worth of young individuals.

If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning. That way, their children don’t have to be slaves of praise. They will have a lifelong way to build and repair their own confidence. –Carol Dweck

Today’s kids are highly susceptible to encountering a mental health concern. Stress and predisposition are the catalysts for triggering a mental health disorder and with kids enduring pressure from school, home, friends, and social media, there has never been a more stressful environment for kids to grow up in. Parents are tasked with advocating for the positive mental health for their children and having the experience of a child therapist or counselor on their side can be a great benefit.

If you see promise in setting your child up with a therapist or counselor, consider working with a child therapist at Thriveworks Orlando, FL. These counselors specialize in child therapy, which means they’ve completed training and experience that enables them to best help these young people. To schedule a child therapy appointment, all you have to do is contact our office. We’re here to get started when you and your child are ready. 

Common Mental Health Problems and Concerns Among Children

With mental health diagnoses on the rise it is common for child therapists to see these top five disorders in their young clients:

  1. Anxiety Disorders, including Social Anxiety Disorder and Panic Attacks
  2. Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder
  3. Autism Spectrum Disorder
  4. Behavior Disorders, including Conduct Disorder and Oppositional Defiance Disorder
  5. Mood Disorders, including Depression and Bipolar Disorder

If your child is showing signs of one of these mental health concerns, a counselor can work with you and your child to properly diagnose and treat the problem. Some ways in which a counselor can provide help for youth suffering from mental health disorders can include:

  • Helping to create a structure and routine to alleviate stress associated with change
  • Giving the child a safe environment to express themselves
  • Working with parents and teachers on how to best support the child

Raising a child within our society can be challenging. Our office provides child therapy and teen counseling to help when those challenges begin to feel overwhelming. A trained and qualified counselor can guide you in the right direction to take some of the stress out of your life. Both you and your child will benefit from a consultation with one of our qualified child therapists.

Call today to book an appointment to talk about these challenges and how you can best help your child.

Margaret Keig

Hi I was a prior supervisor for Margaret in California where she did her post degree internship. She was a very skilled clinician who had many kids that were high-risk and lived in low-income families. Her relationship and interactive approach was very successful with these children and families. I was impressed with her skill and abilities. I would highly recommend her. Vicci
