Have you noticed a change in your child’s mood or behavior? Have they stopped sharing about their life with you? Are you concerned about how they are coping with a change or transition? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then connecting your child with a therapist may be the answer.
Common issues addressed in child therapy:
Grief and Loss
(i.e. change in schools, divorce)
Child therapy provides a safe space for your child to learn healthy coping skills, learn how to navigate peer relationships, develop a healthy sense of self, and learn how to make positive choices. The therapists at Family Therapy Center of Bethesda strive to create a safe, warm, and trusting environment that allows your child to feel comfortable opening up so that they feel able to get the support they need to be happy and healthy. While the focus of child therapy is primarily on your child, we do strongly value and encourage parent involvement as we believe you are the foundation and key support for your child at home.
