Children and Adolescents

All Minds flourish under the right conditions, and when youth cannot get their specific needs met (attention, understanding, encouragement, etc.), nor effectively communicate what those needs are, they can develop emotional and behavioral issues (e.g. depression, [separation] anxiety, ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder).  When a therapist connects with youth through their favorite media and pop culture, they can develop creative solutions for personal and interpersonal success. Younger children (5-9) benefit from parents fine-tuning their skills with a therapist through Parent Child Interaction Training (PCIT, also available). All Mind Health youth therapists collaborate with schools (teachers, IEP & 504 committees, etc.), coaches, and doctors to find the best, integrated approach for individuals and families.
