Child and Adolescent

Child and Adolescent Therapy in Brentwood, TN

Rough Waters

It is a privilege to work with each and every client and we recognize the courage that it takes to begin therapy. Selecting the right therapist can be difficult, and your relationship with your provider plays a significant role in the success of your treatment. We encourage you to seek out the therapist that feels like the best fit for you and your needs. We believe with the right support; each child or adolescent can work to meet their goals and improve their relationships.

We provide both Individual and/or family counseling depending on the age and presenting concerns of your child or adolescent.

When treating a child or adolescent, we feel it’s important to involve the family in order to help support the client and to foster long term growth. As a result, we intentionally draw from parental consultation and ongoing involvement throughout treatment.

Although not appropriate for everyone, we do offer parent only consultations prior to the initial child session while parents are attempting to find the right fit for their family’s needs.

Every family and individual is different and therefore we offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client’s specific needs in order to help attain the personal growth they’re striving to achieve.

We work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues providing services that span from parenting support through to depression, anxiety, and trauma-focused counseling. Below we have included a list of some common presenting concerns:

  • Depression and Anxiety

  • Social issues

  • Perfectionism

  • Self-esteem

  • School concerns

  • Life changes

  • Trauma

  • Family Counseling

  • Parenting Support

  • Grief Counseling

  • Stress Management

  • Conflict Resolution
