When a child presents with challenging behavior, often times the whole family suffers. It can be a very painful experience to watch your child struggle to grow and develop. Often as parents we find ourselves limited in our abilities to help our children grow and achieve the developmental goals for their age. A therapist can help a family understand the developmental needs of their child and learn how to best support them. Through therapy children and parents learn about how to make positive changes and improve the quality of family interactions. Parents also learn how to promote positive change and healthy decision making for their child.

The therapeutic relationship with children is unique. Children process information differently than adults and their symptoms are often presented indirectly through behavioral challenges. Depending on the age of the child, various play therapy techniques are used to help children express and ultimately address emotional issues. Young children are generally unable to process information through lengthy discussions. Through play, the child is able to communicate thoughts and feelings. Family consultation is also utilized to facilitate growth when working with young children

Although medication is not an option for everyone, for some conditions, therapy along with medication are a treatment combination that works best.
