Child and Adolescent Therapy

Depending on the age of the child, the level of parent/caregiver involvement may vary. For example, for a young child (under age 7) the therapeutic work for the treatment of separation anxiety would primarily entail working with parents to support their children in becoming comfortable with increasing degrees of separation. In contrast, adolescent psychotherapy may include very little parental involvement. In all cases our therapists provide client-centered and evidence-based treatments to help children, adolescents and their families with a variety of difficulties.

We offer individual and group psychotherapy for children and adolescents struggling with:

  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Anxiety and Panic disorders (e.g., generalized anxiety disorder and separation anxiety)
  • Phobias (e.g., insects, needles)
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Mood disorders
  • Difficulties with coping skills and emotional regulation
  • Behavioural difficulties (e.g., non-compliance)
  • Grief
  • Adjustment to difficult circumstances (e.g., chronic illness or injury to self or family members)

We also offer comprehensive assessments to aid in the identification of:

  • Learning disabilities
  • Cognitive difficulties
  • Academic struggles
  • Giftedness
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Mood disorders
