Having raised four children, two of whom we adopted, I am able to understand the unique needs and stains of both motherhood and children trying to find their place, the stresses of being a mother and how our thoughts and feelings effect our relationships. It wasn’t easy to find a therapist that used mercy and truth. But through those challenges, I learned patience and listening skills that allowed me to assist my clients in achieving their goals.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Addison, TX 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 Addison 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.
