Child Therapy in Washington, DC—Therapists and Counselors for Kids

As your child’s guardian, you are their protector. Naturally, you do every single thing possible to protect them from the evils of the world and keep them happy. But if you’re honest with yourself, you know that you can’t possibly protect them from all evils and pain. The tough reality is that we all encounter challenges in childhood and as we continue to grow up: We struggle to fit in and get bullied; we fall in love and get heartbroken; we experience excruciating pain when our parents tell us they’re separating; and we get knocked down a time or a few, both physically and mentally.

There are things about your childhood you hold onto, because they were

so much a part of you. The places you went, the people you knew.”

–The Wonder Years

While we cannot protect our kids from every evil and pain, the good news is that we can guide them as they encounter obstacles. And if we don’t think we’re able to offer them the help that they need, we can set them up with a child therapist. Child therapists have professional skills, training, and experience related to helping kids and teens maintain their mental health and excel in life. If you think that your child could benefit from working with a child therapist, consider scheduling an appointment at Thriveworks Washington, DC child therapy. Just call (202) 221-8410 when you’re ready to talk to our scheduling team.

Thriveworks Counseling DC

Wonderful Care, Treatment, and Flexibility

I’ve really been helped by Thriveworks. I have a wonderful counselor who has been able to arm me with resources and knowledge surrounding my mental illness so I can be more prepared against my own future thoughts or environments. I’ve been able to request a different psychiatrist when one was not entirely a correct match for me, and I always get great positive feedback and respect from my mental health care professionals. It seems like they actually want you to have a good match with someone and will help you along the way.

As an educator of students with a variety of special needs, I can attest to Sam's pedigree as a counselor. He is a skillful communicator, a staunch advocate for his clients, and he demonstrates an uncanny ability to remain calm and knowledgeable despite every and any difficult situation. Sam has been an invaluable resource to me in understanding the underlying conditions and trauma that provoke certain behaviors in children. In short, he has made me a better teacher!
