Specialty Area: Services for Children
Many children struggle with anxiety, depression, ADHD, oppositional disorder, spectrum disorders and other concerns. It is really more common than not that children will have emotional problems at some time during their development. If you discover that your child is having difficulty coping with challenging behaviors or feelings, it may be time to find compassionate, expert help with someone trained to work with children.
At Sollars and Associates we have therapists who are trained in multiple modalities of child therapy. We also have a weekly child therapy case conference to help address difficult cases and continue to elevate the therapist’s skills and clinical abilities. We work with the child directly, as well as involving the parent in the treatment. The therapist engages the child to create a positive relationship. Building on the relationship, the therapist helps the child to understand and work through their challenges. Emotional regulation is often a significant part of the treatment, as children are often overcome by “big feelings”. Typically, the younger the child is, the more the parents are involved with the counseling, but parents always need some level of involvement to become part of the solution. We also provide psychological testing if needed, work closely with school staff and pediatricians, and work with a network of medication providers if a medication evaluation is indicated.
If you find your child is struggling and could use help, please call us and we will arrange the help you need.
