Over time, children and teens may need care that goes beyond the scope of what you are able to provide as a parent or caregiver. While it may seem overwhelming to place your child in therapy, counseling is one of the best commitments you can make to a future where they can thrive. The presence of a compassionate adult, trained in developmentally appropriate therapeutic techniques, can help you and your child process their emotions, understand what motivates unwanted behaviors, and develop family strategies for healing and change.

Counseling for Children

  • Children struggling with mental health issues may demonstrate some of the following: Withdrawn, tearful, and uninterested in activities they used to enjoy
  • Defiant, angry, or destructive
  • Experiencing new fears or anxieties, like inappropriate separation anxiety
  • Regressing and engaging in behaviors that seem more appropriate for a younger child
  • Unfocused and having difficulty in school
  • Having issues with attachment or a new fear of abandonment

These behaviors are how children process emotional distress, and it’s important to address them as what they are: mental wellness challenges.

REACH therapy for kids is designed for children and teens who need kind, caring, kid-friendly support. You know your child best, and you are their most important advocate. While it may seem overwhelming to reach out for help, your child needs you to access REACH’s compassionate therapy for children – and you deserve the peace of mind that comes from knowing they are in excellent hands.

Why Therapy for Kids?

Many children and families are still facing an unprecedented period of stress and disruption, even as our lives return to a “new normal.” Therapy gives children a consistent relationship with a warm, positive, and supportive adult that they can count on to always be there, enhancing feelings of safety and predictability that can help build trust.

REACH child counselors have extensive experience working with children online and in-person and are trained to use imaginative play, art therapy, storytelling, and other techniques to connect with your child and keep them engaged. Children’s therapy is designed to look and feel like fun time with a trusted adult and can introduce more joy and stability into your child’s life when they need them the most.

Our counselors know that children are resilient, and they are here to partner with you to unlock your child’s inner strength. Your family needs and deserves this extra support, so you can focus on connecting and thriving during family time rather than redirecting negative behaviors.
