Parents bring children to therapy for a variety of reasons: poor academic performance, behavioral problems, anxiety, stress, and depression, to name a few. By enlisting the help of a psychologist, we can equip your child with tools they can use to live a healthy and fulfilling life.
At Wake Psychological Health and Wellness, we can help your child learn to:
Work with their emotions
Handle stress more effectively
Be more respectful
Recognize and utilize strengths
Feel more confident
Child therapy, for ages 6 - 12, is a team approach involving parents, caregivers, and/or teachers collaborating to help your child learn practical tools and skills, recognize and utilize their strengths, and overcome life's challenges. We’ll work together to get clarity on the problems and areas in need of improvement; and collaboratively develop a plan, maintaining communication throughout the process. Sometimes a psychological or learning ability evaluationis used for a comprehensive understanding of a child's cognitive and emotional functioning. Let us help you sort it all out. Our psychologists tailor evidence-based treatments, including cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy for each child, utilizing their individual strengths and preferences along the way.
