As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Registered Play Therapist, Certified FirstPlay® Therapist, EMDRIA approved EMDR therapist, and Certified Child and Adolescents Trauma Professional, I am aware of these dynamics for the child and for the parent as well.
Today's society brings many challenges to children, adolescents and their families. While some face setbacks at home, others might struggle with school issues or have difficulties in social situations casting a shadow over childhood. Although parenting and family life can be the most rewarding experience, they are also complex tasks with ever changing challenges, especially if the family deals with, for example, trauma, anxiety, ADHD, grief, blending families, school/ peer problems.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Venice, FL 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, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Venice 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.
