Child and Adolescent Therapy

Depending on the age of the child, the level of parent or caregiver involvement in therapy may vary. For example, for a child under age seven, the treatment of separation anxiety would primarily entail working with parents to support their children in becoming comfortable with increasing degrees of separation. In contrast, adolescent psychotherapy may include very little parental involvement. In all cases, our therapists provide client-centred and evidence-based treatments (projective therapy) to help children, adolescents, and their families with a variety of difficulties.

We offer individual and group psychotherapy for children and adolescents struggling with:

  • Trauma and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Anxiety and panic disorders (e.g. generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, and separation anxiety)
  • Phobias (e.g. insects, needles)
  • Mood disorders
  • Difficulties with coping skills and emotional regulation
  • Behavioural difficulties (e.g. non-compliance)
  • Grief
  • Adjustment to difficult circumstances (e.g. chronic illness or injury to self or family members)
  • Gender identity and sexuality
