  • Child Therapy in Marin County

    child therapy

    As child therapists, we know you may be struggling. As a parent, you feel overwhelmed and frustrated. You may be struggling with managing and understanding your child’s behaviors. Maybe you’re wondering if your child has ADHD, has issues learning, or challenges in making friends. We know that as a parent it can be hard dealing with an angry or anxious child.

    Why are they challenging me so much?

    Why are they talking back?

    Why can’t they get along?

    It makes it hard to know how to navigate these tough moments and help your child make better choices. Children want to seek your love and positive attention. We can help you understand your child’s behavior and develop ways to help you feel more connected to them. When you see your child struggling, it’s painful.

    How our Child Therapists Can Help

    Child therapy can help by giving you a way to understand your child’s developmental needs, behaviors and struggles.

    Through play therapy and talk therapy, we’ll help your child develop tools for dealing with:

    • Anxiety
    • Difficulty making friends
    • Frequent tantrums or melt downs
    • Divorce/separation
    • Loss of a family member
    • Chronic illness of a family member
    • Depression
    • Excessive worries

    We’ll help you support and connect with your child, and gain an understanding of why they’re making the choices they’re making. Because when you’re connected with your kid, it’s easier to get to the heart of what’s really going on with them. We’ll help you get through these early years with your child.

    What to Expect from our Child Therapists

    We’ll start by meeting with you to understand your concerns, the child’s history and what you hope your child gains from play therapy. We’ll meet with you regularly, as well as your child. We help your child feel safe so they can express what they’re struggling with through play and talk therapy. We’ll add to your child’s coping skills to help them deal with the stressors that are overwhelming them at school, with friends or within your family. Your child will have a safe place to come and feel understood and supported in learning ways to handle their feelings and behaviors.
