Online Therapy for Children
Childhood is a time of wonder and discovery, growth, and change. As we collectively endure uncertain times, children face unprecedented challenges that impact their wellness and development.
This past year, with online schooling and increased distance from peers and extended family, children may feel fearful, frustrated, and alone. While children express these emotions differently than adults and teens, you may have noticed new behaviors or “acting out” at home. These behaviors are a normal reaction to stress and trauma, and it’s important for children to have a compassionate, caring adult to help them process their “big emotions.”
Our Online Counseling for Children
Online therapy for children at REACH is designed to help your child connect to their feelings and cope with uncertainty in positive ways. You may notice that your child is:
- Withdrawn, tearful, and uninterested in activities they used to enjoy
- Defiant, angry, or destructive
- Experiencing new fears or anxieties, like a fear of germs or going outside
- 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
You may also sense that your child is struggling in ways that are difficult to define. These behaviors are how children process emotional distress, and it’s important to address them as what they are: mental wellness challenges.
REACH online counseling for kids is designed for children ages 4-12 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 online therapy for children – and you deserve the peace of mindthat comes from knowing they are in excellent hands.
Why Online Therapy for Kids?
Many children and families are opting to spend more time at home. Teletherapy for children gives children a relationship with a warm, positive, and supportive adult that they can count on to always be there – no matter what safety and scheduling decisions their family needs to make.
REACH child counselors have extensive experience working with children online and are trained to use imaginative play, art therapy, storytelling, and other techniques to connect with your child and keep them engaged.Children’s teletherapy is designed to look and feel like fun time with a trusted adult, and combined with the consistency of an online format, 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.
