What insurance do you take?
How long will my child be in therapy?
This is a commonly asked question of parents bringing their children to treatment for the first time. The best answer we can give is that it depends! Sometimes children only need a few sessions or months to feel better/recover, and in other cases children may need therapy for longer depending on their behaviors or symptoms.
What do I need to know before bringing my child to therapy?
What if my child does not want to come to therapy or does not want to come back?
Building rapport with a child may take time. Many children may not enjoy the first session or two with a new therapist and often children will feel uncomfortable for the first couple of weeks which is completely normal! It is important to encourage your child to keep at it and keep coming to therapy as recommended so that the relationship can strengthen, and the child can begin to heal.
Will my child be forced to discuss a traumatic event?
Our goal is to help your child or family in whatever way works for you. Some children can heal and find positive coping skills without discussing their trauma and that is okay! We provide materials and open conversations that allow the child to feel safe and able to speak if they wish. If they do not wish or are not ready to, then we can work towards recovery without a disclosure! The important thing to remember is that every child is unique, and every coarse treatment will be tailored to fit your child and family’s needs.
What about confidentiality?
