Need more help deciding?

Sometimes a child or adolescent has challenges or issues they are unable to face on their own. Even with the help of family members, some situations are difficult for children. When your child is struggling with an issue, whether it is social anxiety, mood changes, irritability, or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), it gets in the way of the many exciting events and fun that life has to offer. You want to help your child, and it is hard to watch as they suffer from their issues.

When you, another family member, a teacher, a coach, or somebody close to your child is concerned about behaviors, it may be a good idea to seek the help of a therapist or counselor. At Thriveworks in Westminster, CO Child, and Adolescent Therapy/Counseling, the professionals have years of experience in the many issues that can affect a child.

Common Obsessions in Children with OCD

  • Contamination. Kids with this obsession are sometimes labeled “germaphobes.” Children worry about other kids sneezing and coughing, touching things that may be dirty or getting sick. This is the most common obsession seen in children.
  • Magical Thinking. This is a type of superstition, such as “step on a crack, break your mother’s back,” but it is taken to extremes. Kids might worry that their thoughts can cause someone to get hurt or sick. A child may think that unless his things (books, toys) are lined up in a certain way, his mother will get in a car accident.
  • Catastrophizing. Some kids jump to the conclusion that something terrible has happened. If parents are five minutes late in picking them up, a child who is catastrophizing might tell himself they have decided to abandon him.
  • Srupulosity. This obsession is when children obsessively worry about offending God or being blasphemous in some way.
  • What Ifs. Kids may be plagued by many kinds of thoughts about bad things they could do, such as if they hurt, stabbed or killed somebody.
  • The “Just Right Feeling.” When OCD first develops—from about six to nine years of age—children may not know why they do something. But, they just need to do it until they get what is called the “just right feeling.” For example, they may line things up until they feel just right and then stop. Over time, when they are closer to nine to 12 years old, it evolves into Magical Thinking, becoming more superstitious in nature.

Chris at Thrive Works saved my life. I started at the beginning of the pandemic, by phone, and I didn’t think therapy by phone would have the impact that it did. But I tried for my kids, my marriage, and myself. I can’t say enough good things about Chris. Thank you for everything, and for literally saving my life. I wouldn’t be alive without his counsel.

Jakob Rosenthal is the best therapist I've ever encountered! He gets to the bottom line quickly and kindly, and helps me to understand as well as helps me to have healthy coping mechanisms. I am a better person for having seen him.

Initially I saw Jacob for my intake appointment and felt he was really great. I was placed with Kate Kelly and overall she is fabulous. She has helped me live to my full potential. She has helped me sort out my PTSD with childhood and adult trauma, as well as being a great resource for addiction counseling. She was also extremely helpful to point me in the right direction on how to deal with (or escape from) toxic family members. She was also a really great help to me during grief and loss of a loved one. I feel so much better than I did before going to Thriveworks. I'm in a great place now and will be back in the future. I can't thank you enough.

Jacob has helped me much more than any therapist I've ever seen. His skill, insight, and kindness are truly outstanding. Jacob has helped me change my life so that my depression is no longer in charge. His approach is very direct - which may not be for everyone but was perfect for me - but he always acts and speaks with sincere compassion. Thank you, Jacob, you have helped heal me at a level I thought was impossible. Also, Jennifer has always been super wonderful and responsive withheduling and questions. She goes above and beyond to be helpful and kind. Thanks Jennifer! You're awesome.
