Children who have experienced traumatic or stressful events often need help from a therapist to learn how to navigate through these big feelings in a safe environment, increase their emotional literacy, and develop healthy skills to thrive. Therapy can help children overcome traumatic experiences ranging from a car accident to physical abuse.
This is not just a challenging time for children, but can be for caregivers as well. We also work alongside parents and caregivers to provide therapeutic interventions, so that they can practice at home the skills they learn from the therapist.
Everyone can benefit from therapy, so we encourage you to reach out if you think therapy could be a helpful resource for your child.
Our counseling center specializes in serving children ages one to eight, and we work with families from throughout the Kansas City metro area.
Our therapists are highly-trained and equipped to help guide you toward the therapy that is the best fit for your child. We are trained to offer Play Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), and Trauma-Focused / Abuse-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).
