Grand Rapids Therapist

Child & Adolescent Therapy

Each parent wants their child to be happy, develop positive social relationships, have memorable experiences, and find balance in their life. As a child, growing up in today’s society can be quite challenging and complicated. The integration of social media and technology alone has changed how so many of us (adults included) choose to interact with others and the world around us. The pressures and challenges your child may be currently struggling with may be difficult to relate to and causing stress within your family and relationship with your child. My approach in working with your child is to support, listen, validate, and challenge them to process their emotions, behaviors, and begin to find a healthy balance in their lives by utilizing the interpersonal dynamic of the therapeutic relationship that will assist in making a change.
