Children and Teens

"Enter into children's play, and you will find the place where their minds, hearts, and souls meet." -Virginia Axline.

Understanding and nurturing the emotional and psychological well-being of children and teens is at the heart of our child and teen therapy services. Our clinicians provide a supportive environment that encourages young individuals to explore their thoughts and feelings through creative and expressive modalities.

Our therapeutic techniques are varied and versatile, including play therapy, which allows children to communicate through the universal language of play, and art therapy, which gives them the tools to express complex emotions through creativity. Our clinicians employ a variety of age-appropriate counseling methods and cognitive-behavioral strategies to guide young clients as they learn to process their emotions and establish healthy coping mechanisms. These evidence-based approaches are tailored to each child’s developmental stage, ensuring that they receive the most effective support for their individual needs.

Our therapy approaches are sensitive to the various social settings where young individuals may encounter stressors, from their homes and schools to peer interactions and online spaces. We believe in a holistic approach that involves working collaboratively with parents, schools, and other important figures in the child's life to foster an environment conducive to their growth and development. Education and resources for parents and caregivers are also a pivotal part of our services, providing the necessary skills to support their children's therapy journey at home.

At Daniel's Harbor, we are committed to helping our young clients navigate the challenges of growing up in today's world, equipping them with the resilience and self-awareness needed for their continued emotional and social development.
