Find a therapist in Portland who specializes in working with children.

We have a comprehensive list of Portland-area therapists who focus on child therapy and counseling. Browse therapist profiles below and filter results based on what matters most to you.

Just like adults, some kids can benefit from therapy. Many need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need help talking about their feelings about family issues, particularly if there's a major transition, like a death, divorce, move, or serious illness. It may not be clear what's caused a child to suddenly seem withdrawn or worried. Therapy for children and teens focuses on building self-esteem and improving relationships and communication. Child therapists are experts at helping children cope with stress, develop problem-solving skills, a strong sense of self and emotional strength.
