Just for Kids
(and the adults who love and care for them)
Kids often have hard feelings, just like adults do. Life can be pretty sad and confusing and sometimes you can't even find words for what is going on.
You may be feeling worried, scared, sad, angry, confused. Maybe you're having bad dreams, are afraid to leave Mom or Dad, or find yourself feeling cranky all the time. Maybe you're getting into fights or you cry for no reason. It might be because something bad has happened — there may be a lot of arguing or a divorce in your family, maybe someone close to you is sick or you've lost someone you love. It might be hard to get along with other kids, or maybe your school work is just too hard. Bad things can happen to wonderful kids, and it can cause lots of mixed-up feelings and stress.
Or maybe nothing at all has happened, but bad feelings seem to follow you around like a dark cloud. That is really confusing!
Whatever it is, I am here to help you. If you come to therapy, you can express yourself with words or through play, art or storytelling. You and I will get to know each other, and will have a chance to talk and play. We'll work on helping you feel safe, happy, and on top of things. We'll help the adults in your life understand what you need from them.
Therapy can help the bad feelings be less "in charge," and can help you feel good again. Whatever helps you feel better is what we do in therapy.
