At Child Therapy Boston, we have a passion for working with children, teens, siblings, families and groups. We are confident that we can help individuals and families struggling with diagnoses including ADHD, Anxiety, Mood Disorders, Depression, Developmental Disabilities, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, and Attachment. We enjoy working with clients who are struggling with self-esteem, family relationships, grief and loss, bullying, life transitions, and stress management. We also offer specialized counseling for LGBTQIA+ youth.
We are passionate about running social skills group therapy for children and teens. The groups are created similar to kids' natural peer environments to ensure the likelihood that they can generalize and use the skills and feedback from group when they are at school or with their friends.
Group therapy provides incredibly positive social experiences that many kids haven't had in a long time. These experiences build self-confidence which provides proof that social success is possible. This not only provides a tool box full of skills, but also confidence and real life experiences to draw from.
