Child Therapy

Building skills and behaviors to serve your child well

Have you been struggling to help your child, inundated with opinions from all corners but feeling you lack the resources to fully help…afraid most of all of what will happen if nothing changes? Well, at Studio for Change, you are not alone. With extensive experience in child behavioral and learning issues, the Studio’s therapists take an approach geared toward your child’s developmental level, listening closely to your child’s behaviors, as they give vital clues about the way forward.

Listening To Behavior

Because we know that the process of change only works when it works for everyone, we take great care to integrate the family into therapy with interventions that keep the family as a whole in mind. We move beyond “labels” to help your child build skills and behaviors that will serve them well. And though this process can be difficult, we invite laughter and full hearts into our work. For your child, your family and you, child therapy at the Studio can be a positive, affirming step, with something new to be learned at every session.

Individual Child Psychotherapy

Individual therapy is customized to meet the needs and highlight the strengths of every child. We use therapeutic interventions to help children identify, understand and regulate emotions while building upon the child’s strengths.

Play Therapy

Play therapy is interactive and focuses on using play, the natural language of young children, as a primary method to help children develop communication skills, emotion regulation skills, and manage behavior challenges. Play therapy encourages healthy decision-making and problem-solving skills. Parents are frequently included in sessions.

Family Therapy

Family therapy focuses on the family as a “whole” by providing a safe place for all family members to be heard, supported, and involved. The goal of family therapy is to strengthen family relationships, improve communication, and reduce familial conflict.
