Counseling Services for Children of All Ages

Individual Therapy for Children

Empowering Children to Develop Lifelong Skills – You’re a little loved one has a world of big emotions inside of them. However, when children are feeling distressed, it can manifest in many different ways. Some children lack the emotional and verbal skills needed to express what they are feeling effectively to adults. Psychotherapy for children is designed to provide your children with the coping skills, tools, and support they need to express and process their emotions.

At the City Counseling Center, we believe that every child deserves to feel loved, validated, empowered, and connected. Our children’s services are tailored to the specific needs of your child to empower them with the support they need to facilitate positive growth and development.

Psychotherapy for Children

Psychotherapy is a form of mental health treatment that involves developing a trusted relationship between a therapist and a child and their family. Children’s therapy is designed to provide a safe space for kids to help them understand and resolve problems, and to help them express their needs in a way adults can understand. Play therapy is a specific form of psychotherapy where children naturally express their feelings, emotions, and experiences through play.

Therapy helps with feelings and emotions, such as:

  • Sadness
  • Anger
  • Worry 
  • Stress
  • Low self-esteem
  • Grief
  • And more

Therapy helps children with conditions such as:

  • ADHD
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Social Skills Challenges
  • Behavioral Challenges
  • Self-injury
  • Family conflict
  • Divorce and loss
  • And more
At City Counseling Center, we believe that play is one of the most valuable tools when working with children. Children share their inner world through play. Through play, they also learn to negotiate conflict, express feelings, and regulate their bodies. Our play therapy is designed to create a safe and judgment-free space for children to explore their emotions and experiences.
