Therapy for Children

1450164881It’s terrible to feel like you can’t help your child.

You see your child struggling and desperately want to understand their experience. But when you ask them about it, they either can’t articulate their feelings or don’t want to talk about it.

You don’t want to push them away, but if you do nothing, you’re scared that things will worsen. It feels like you’re failing as a parent.

But the fact that you’re here shows that you want what’s best for your child.

Let us help your child thrive.

Here at Nexus Counseling Services, we’ll create a space for you and your child that promotes open communication, safety, and trust.

Younger children frequently haven’t developed the ability to express their emotions in words, so we rely on games, art, worksheets, and role-playing.

Therapy with children often looks like play, but this is important and challenging work necessary to build developmentally appropriate communication and relational skills.

While parents are not the primary client, you must actively participate in the therapy process. There will be times when we all come together to work on a particular skill or to solve a problem, and our therapists provide frequent opportunities for parents to check in and share their perspectives.

One of our main focuses at Nexus is relationships – family relationships and therapeutic relationships. We’ll spend a lot of time building a relationship with your child so they feel comfortable trusting us with their emotional world.

Parenting is hard, and we can all use some help.

We’re here to support you and your family. Getting professional help is a courageous thing to do. Getting help while your children are young and developing is a smart thing to do.
