What Is Child Therapy?

Child therapy is designed to provide children, teens, and adolescents with professional help and support. It can help these young individuals understand and manage mental illness, work through trauma, and learn how to cope with stress.

Though many of us fail to realize this, many kids and teens face the same issues as us adults. They struggle with difficult emotions, fight with their loved ones, and experience symptoms of mental illnesses like depression and anxiety. The difference, though, is that these young individuals are in a crucial stage of development and often require extra help and support with these challenges. Therefore, the ultimate goal of child therapy is to assist children and teens with managing or resolving the problem(s) at hand.

We are proud to offer child therapy at Thriveworks Richmond, VA (Shockoe Bottom). Our child therapists have the knowledge, skillset, and experience needed to help your child or teen work through the challenges they are facing.
