Pooler, GA—Child Therapy, Counseling for Kids

Meet with a local Thriveworks provider -- we accept insurance & provide personalized, high-quality care.


Whether it’s moving to a new town, grieving the death of a loved one, or experiencing the divorce of their parents, children and teens are constantly experiencing changes that make an impression on their lives. It is not easy for anyone to understand and explain our feelings—not to mention being a kid and doing so! Growing up brings about ever-changing obstacles. Kids and teens are still learning, growing, and adapting, and as they do so they tend to wish life could be just a little bit easier.

“Children are like wet cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression.”

-Haim Ginott

At Thriveworks, we understand that childhood and adolescence are both tough stages in life, and we want to help. Thankfully, there is support out there for kids and teens alike. If a kid or teen is experiencing bullying, having trouble focusing at school, or a traumatic event has occurred in their life, a counselor or therapist at Thriveworks can help. We have providers at Thriveworks Pooler that are specialized in providing therapy specifically to children (of all ages). Child counselors and parents can work together to be a helping hand for a child as they work on tackling each obstacle they face and in order to feel ready to keep moving forward. If you feel like your child could benefit from discussing their obstacles with one of our providers, call Thriveworks Pooler today.

Child Therapy—What Is It and How Can It Help?

Life can be hard, and children and teens do not always have the tools they need to handle the daily stressors in their life, no matter how big or small those stressors may be. For a child, therapy has the ability to guide them in understanding their mental and emotional health. Seeking out a child therapist at Thriveworks can assist those kids who might need a little extra help in understanding:

  • Abuse
  • Grief and loss
  • Making new friends
  • Bullying
  • Divorce
  • Anxiety
  • Mental Illnesses

It’s understandable when a child does not have the tools to cope alone. The providers at Thriveworks Pooler are ready and willing to be that helping hand you feel like your child might need.

Child Therapy in Action

At Thriveworks, child therapy is specific to each individual. Our clinicians work to assist them with their needs and help them develop the tools they need to work on eliminating their daily stressors. Our main goal is to help children and teens experience joy and live happier, healthier lives. Here are a couple of examples in which Thriveworks strives to help children excel:

  1. Traumatic events are hard things for anyone to swallow. Whether it is a bad accident, the loss of a loved one, or a natural disaster, children become fearful of what is next to come. They do not have the tools they need to move on from these tragic occurrences. If not taken care of correctly, these events could leave a negative impression on a child for life. If your child or teen has experienced a traumatic event and has not been themselves, Thriveworks Pooler can help. Our child therapists allow children and teens to discuss what they’ve experienced and assist them in getting their thoughts and feelings out into the open, rather than keeping them inside. They work with children and teens on developing coping mechanisms, which allow their daily lives to improve.
  2. When a divorce occurs in a family, it does not only affect the couple that chooses to separate. Divorce involves the entire family, and especially the children in that family. Children and teens tend to be faced with moving to and from houses, limited time with both parents, and a different scheduled than they are normally used to. This can leave a child feeling unloved, confused, and sometimes depressed. A counselor can work with a child to help them understand that the divorce is not their fault, and it is okay to feel confused about this new way of life. At Thriveworks Pooler, our child therapists work to help them effectively deal with their emotions by teaching them effective techniques such as journaling and simply opening up about their emotions
