Our counseling and therapy for children is done in a safe and quiet atmosphere. Many children and teens encounter psychological and emotional distress due to many different factors. Social pressures can also cause adjustment and emotional problems. Low self-esteem, depression, social anxiety and behavioral problems can all cause teens to feel pressured. Parents especially need to connect with their teens around this time, as this is critical to helping them feel supported. Individual or adolescent therapy is the best route for teens to understand their turmoil and for parents to know how to help them through this rocky road. Family therapy helps individuals learn more effective ways to communicate and interact so that they can resolve conflicts.
Our counseling techniques are either centered around counseling the individual by themselves in sessions or by having group sessions with family members. There can also be a mix of individual and group sessions led by our New Milford child therapist. We explore family roles, the root of emotional upheaval, and rules for re-learning behavior patterns that help us identify issues that are causing conflicts. Strengths and weaknesses are talked about and worked on to better help each member of the family do their job and learn to communicate with one another.
