What is Child Therapy?
Child therapy is counseling for kids that is specially designed to help children and adolescents face their challenges. This may start as early as toddlers in preschool and range to teenagers in high school. Some of these challenges might include mental illness, trauma, and loss, as well as difficult feelings and behaviors.
Common issues addressed may include:
- Mental health diagnosis
- Starting a new school
- Experiencing a traumatic event
- Death of a loved one

Trauma-Focused Child Therapy
Trauma-focused therapy is a specific approach to treatment that recognizes and emphasizes how traumatic experiences impact a child’s mental, behavioral, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. The purpose of this therapy is to offer skills and strategies to assist the child to better understand, cope with, and process emotions and memories tied to traumatic events. This can help the child create a healthier and more adaptive meaning of the experience that took place.
