Child Therapy

Often children experience the same kinds of stresses, and anxieties that adults do. Yet because of their youth they may not have the coping strategies to deal effectively with their problems. When a child's problems do not resolve in a reasonable time frame, or when a child has a problem that interferes with their social, psychological or physical development, it is advisable to seek the expertise of a child therapist.

A child therapist has specialized knowledge and skills that enable them to identify problem behaviors and to implement appropriate treatment interventions. This may include meeting with the parents and child together, the child alone, or the parents separately. Therapy can help a child discuss and understand problems, thereby developing new coping strategies.

Dana utilizes a combination of play and art as a way to help children process their feelings, gain insight, and resolve conflicts.
