It is difficult to navigate the same old argument with your spouse and feel like you get no traction. It is scary to know that your child is struggling yet you do not have the tools to help them. It is disheartening to feel that you are still making the same mistakes and have the same difficulties as you always have. I get it and I have been there.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Alabama provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time (likely in fewer than six sessions), the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Alabama build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
