What Is Child Therapy? How Does It Work?

Child therapy is specifically designed to help kids, teens, and adolescents work through specific challenges, in addition to providing general guidance and support. A child therapist can help their young clients better understand and manage the symptoms of a mental illness, work through the effects of traumatic experiences, and learn how to handle stress.

Many of us forget that kids and teens experience stress and suffer mentally as well as emotionally, just like us adults. They are overwhelmed with emotions, they get into fights with their friends and family members, and they develop mental illnesses. A big difference though is that these young minds are in a crucial developmental stage. And sometimes, they need additional help and support. Therefore, child therapy is meant to help kids and teens manage the challenges they run into.

Thriveworks Virginia Beach, VA (Great Neck) is proud to offer child therapy. Our child therapists have the qualifications and the experience to help children, adolescents, and teenagers in need.

Counseling with Keshanda Garland

★★★★★
My session with Ms. Garland focused on identifying my life events and how they impacted how I previously dealt with diagnosed type 1 bipolar disorder. She listened and engaged with me as I vocalized my immediate fear and overwhelming stressors. Ms. Garland sat with me to customize coping skills for my triggers, including mania during parenting young children and going through a divorce. I have more confidence in how I’ll handle these problems with continuing with the aid of my prescriptions medicines. Thank you! Highly recommend for a compassionate and personal experience.
