Children & Teen Psychotherapy

Therapy for Children and Teens

Everyone has struggled at some point in their life…and this is no exception for our little ones! When kids struggle, parents suffer, because we want nothing more than a life full of happiness and ease for our kids. At CFR, we offer a range of support for children, teens and their parents.


For children and teens, they will meet individually with their designated CFR therapist for the first 30-35 minutes of each session. The last 10-15 minutes of EVERY session is dedicated to the parent.

During the individual child/teen portion of the session, the focus can include any of the following:

  • Teaching emotion identification and regulation
  • Learning problem solving skills for challenging experiences
  • Enhancing self-esteem and confidence
  • Developing effective communication skills with peers and adults
  • Teaching conflict resolution skills
  • Learning Mindfulness techniques and when to use them
  • Processing their trauma history

During the parent portion of the session, the focus can include any of the following:

  • Implementing positive parenting strategies
  • Learning to respond to challenging behaviors and emotions
  • Teaching mindfulness techniques relevant to parenting
  • Supporting your child/teen as they go through life transitions
  • Navigating school and learning challenges
  • Learning how to co-parent

Our goal is to help you and your child or teen live a life with ease, confidence, and happiness.
