Child and Adolescent Therapy

 

Children and adolescents face so many challenges as they learn about themselves and their world. Therapy can be a great source of emotional support and guidance as they navigate the numerous milestones and complex social challenges of childhood. The reasons why a parent would seek out a therapist for their son or daughter are varied but are similar to reasons why adults turn to the expert guidance of a therapist.

 

The therapists at Seal Beach Counseling are unique in that they have received training and have years of experience in learning how to connect with children and adolescents on a deep level. Our therapists have your child’s best interests in mind and know when to challenge when to support, and when to uphold boundaries.
