Therapy for Children

Childhood is full of moments, experiences, and milestones which are critical to proper development.

Life’s ups and downs coupled with hormones and the development of more complex emotions can cause difficulties that children and adolescents are not equipped to handle. When children struggle, intervention as early and quickly as possible is essential.

Tending to a child’s needs, recognizing and validating the depth and importance of their emotions, teaching them to process and resolve those emotions, and guiding them in learning to control their bodies and behavioral reactions can set them up for a an adulthood filled with joy and love.

The therapists at Petrichor Counseling, LLC are passionate about serving children, assisting their healthy development, and setting them on a path of success. We do this through individual, family and group therapy.

Using varied methods and techniques, we provide a nurturing, genuine, and empathic environment, encouraging our littlest clients to openly express themselves comfortably and free of judgment.’
