Child or Adolescent Issues

Most children and teens, even those who seem very well adjusted, will face bumps in the road occasionally. As part of growing up, they may go through tough periods of atypical behavior. Sometimes, there may be an underlying issue that the child or teen has trouble managing on their own. Things like divorce, adoption or bullying can be difficult for a child to work through without help. Additionally, children and adolescents can suffer from many of the same problems facing adults, including depression, insomnia, anxiety, poor self-esteem or eating disorders. A qualified therapist can help a child or adolescent to develop healthy ways to cope with whatever issue is on their mind.
