Therapy for Children

We specialize in providing compassionate and effective therapy services for children. We understand that childhood can be a challenging time, and we are here to support your child's emotional well-being and growth. Our therapy services offer a safe and nurturing environment where children can express themselves, explore their feelings, and learn valuable coping skills.

You’re not sure of the best way to support your child. You need practical solutions that work in real life. You know something is wrong. You need an expert to help identify the truth. You’re frustrated with your child’s behavior, you’re exhausted, and you need answers. 

It feels like you’ve tried everything but nothing works. You’ve asked friends, read books, and sought guidance from teachers and your child’s school, but your child continues to struggle. You feel guilty and wonder if there is more you should do. ​At Plymouth Mental Health we help children of all ages learn to recognize and identify feelings and find healthy ways to express them. Depending upon your child’s age, we use a combination of therapies. Play Therapy helps encourage expression. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) helps kids relate their thoughts to their actions. Mindfulness teaches kids how to calm themselves.

Helping your child learn effective coping skills

Whether your child is struggling with anxiety, attention, confidence, self-esteem, social issues, worries, or depression, learning how to identify their feelings is key. From there your child will be able to understand triggers and develop healthy ways to better manage their feelings.

  • Manage impulsive behavior related to ADHD.

  • Convey their needs to peers and adults.

  • Reduce sensory overload and emotional dysregulation.

  • Respond to and express anger in a positive way.

  • Know when to ask for help.

  • Break tasks down into more manageable pieces.

  • Read social cues and act accordingly. 

  • Manage anxiety and difficult emotions in age-appropriate ways.

For young children, we believe that parent involvement in treatment is essential. After an initial assessment, we will work together to examine expectations, identify goals, and create a treatment plan tailored to your child’s and family’s needs.

**Due to the complex nature of working with children, it is recommended that children ages 8 and younger attend in-person sessions as opposed to telehealth. In-person sessions allow for effective engagement, interactive play and movement and the ability for the therapist to observe the child in totality.
