Children’s Therapy Services

children’s therapy and teen therapy

Childhood and adolescence are periods of intense change and transformative development.During this period, behavioral and emotional challenges, unresolved trauma, and other difficult experiences can jeopardize the transition to healthy adulthood and sometimes add stress into the family system.

At REACH Behavioral Health, we understand how difficult taking that first step to seek children’s therapy or teen therapy can be. We also know that your child or teen needs the compassionate, focused care our therapists can provide in order to thrive.

If you’re in Cleveland, Akron, or anywhere in the greater northeast Ohio area, choose REACH Behavioral Health for your child or adolescent therapy needs. Additionally, our online counseling services are available statewide.

About Our Children’s Counseling

Counseling for teens and counseling for children are ways to seek help with a professional who understands your child and can meet them where they are, emotionally and developmentally.  REACH therapists are experienced in treating children and teens and the many developmental and personal issues they bring into therapy.  

Child and Adolescent Counseling

Therapy for adolescents and children will give your child a safe, welcoming space to process difficult emotions, learn and practice healthy coping strategies, and express themselves without judgment. Child and adolescent counseling may also be an important complement to family counseling and couples counseling.

You may already know what your child’s needs are, or you may just notice that they are acting out, seem withdrawn, or are having difficulty in school or forming relationships. REACH therapists are trained and experienced in treating the following issues: 

  • School difficulties
  • Parent-child conflict
  • Family difficulties
  • Child physical, sexual or emotional abuse
  • Post-traumatic stress disorders
  • Bipolar disorders
  • Spectrum disorders
  • Childhood disruptive disorders
  • Obsessive compulsive disorders
  • ADD and ADHD
  • Mood disorders
  • Depression
  • Headaches, chronic pain, fatigue
  • Stress, anxiety, or panic attacks
  • Chronic and terminal illness
  • Substance abuse

If any of these issues describe what your child is struggling with, please get in touch. REACH therapists are trained to understand the how and why these issues impact children and teens and will collaborate with your family to develop the skills to support healthy change.

The First Steps for Child and Adolescent Counseling

You can begin your children’s therapy experience by contacting us either by phone or through our online intake form. An experienced REACH professional will connect with you right away. Our priority is your child’s well-being, and we are committed to making this process feel hopeful, joyful, and rewarding from the very first call.

REACH accepts most major insurance plans and offers both in-person and telemedicine services. Our flexibility ensures your child will always have access to their counselor, even when coordinating multiple busy schedules and households.

Age-Appropriate Sessions

Once you visit one of our therapy centers or connect with your therapist online, your child will gain a personal relationship that is confidential and supportive. Together, using age-appropriate best practices for emotional regulation and social skills, with additional play-therapy and art therapy, the therapeutic process will wrap around your child and your family providing new skills and hope.

Your child and counselor will build the skills your child needs to grow, thrive, and experience life with more joy and success. During regular meetings, you’ll learn how to reinforce these skills at home to keep making important progress.
