Individual Therapy for Children

At Smith Psychological, we understand the unique challenges that children and teenagers face in today’s complex world. Our specialized individual therapy sessions cater to young individuals aged ten through nineteen, offering them a safe space to explore and overcome their emotional and psychological hurdles. Our experienced child psychologists and therapists are adept at addressing a broad spectrum of issues, including depression, anxiety, social anxiety, responses to traumatic events, relationship difficulties, oppositional and defiant behaviors, and autism spectrum disorders. For younger children under the age of ten, our approach emphasizes working closely with parents, empowering them with strategies and insights to support their child’s emotional and behavioral development. We also offer comprehensive psychological evaluations designed to help clarify the underlying problems and highlight practical and helpful recommendations for navigating the path forward.

Family Therapy and Parental Guidance

Recognizing the pivotal role of family dynamics in a child’s mental health, Smith Psychological offers dedicated services in Family Therapy and Parental Guidance. Our approach goes beyond individual therapy for children and teens, extending support to parents and families as a whole. Through consultation sessions, primarily aimed at parents of children and teenagers, our experts provide invaluable insights and guidance without the necessity of the child’s presence in the sessions. These consultations focus on equipping parents with the tools and knowledge needed to effectively address and navigate their child’s emotional and behavioral challenges. Whether it’s crafting thoughtful strategies, making informed decisions, or understanding the best ways to support their son or daughter, our child psychologists and therapists are committed to fostering positive change within families. By bridging communication gaps and strengthening relationships, we aim to create a harmonious home environment that supports the well-being of each family member.
