VERY YOUNG CHILDREN

AGES 5 AND UNDER

Children ages 5 and under often have difficulty communicating their needs, thoughts, and feelings with others.  This can result in anxiety or behavioral challenges at home, daycare, or school.  These concerns often lead parents to make an appointment with a child psychologist.  Our clinicians have expertise working with very young children and their parents to help decrease children’s anxiety and/or challenging behaviors.  Therapy with children this young focuses on working with the parents to create behavioral and emotional changes in the child.  Parents learn how to shape their child’s behaviors in the direction they desire.   When appropriate, the child and parents will also learn calming skills tailored to the child’s developmental level so that the parents can assist the child with using the skills when necessary.

Our clinicians work with families of young children both individually and in parent-focused groups.  Click here to learn more about Temper Tamers, a skills and support group for parents of children 8 and younger.

CHILDREN

AGES 6 TO 12

School-aged children (6-12) may experience a number of challenges as they navigate expectations at school, among friends, and in the home.  Many different feelings may surface, which children may not be equipped to manage.  Our child therapists provide therapy focused on developing healthy coping skills at your child’s developmental level.  Play, art, and other creative modalities may be incorporated into the sessions to engage your child in the process of therapy.  Parent involvement in therapy is important as well, as parents can learn ways to support their child’s use of the coping skills learned, as well as strategies to help manage their child’s challenging behaviors and increase positive behaviors.  Joint parent-child sessions are often helpful for practicing coping skills together and strengthening the parent-child relationship.

TEENAGERS

AGES 13 TO 18
Adolescence is a challenging time for many individuals.  Social status and peer groups often change in middle school.  Academic pressure mounts during high school.  Romantic relationships become more of a focus.  The teen years are full of emotional ups and downs, often leading to emotional distress.  Many parents seek assistance from a therapist to help their teen navigate these challenges.  Working with a therapist who specializes in working with children, adolescents, and young adults can help your teen by assisting him/her with developing healthy coping skills to handle difficult situations or emotions that he/she may be experiencing.  As a parent, you may be asked to be involved in your teen’s therapy, although parental involvement varies, whereby parents tend to be more involved in younger teens’ treatment and less involved in older teens’ treatment.  However, every situation is unique, and it will be determined after the initial session how involved the parents will be in their teen’s treatment.

YOUNG ADULTS

AGES 19 TO 26

There are many decisions to make as you move on from adolescence to adulthood and begin to think about what you want for your future.  Sometimes it doesn’t happen as quickly as you’d like, or you just aren’t sure what the right path is for you.  You may feel anxious, depressed, or confused at times when things are not going how you had imagined.  Meeting with a therapist can help you sort through your thoughts and feelings at this time.  At Glickman Psychological Services, your therapist will help you work through your challenges and assist you with the development of healthy coping skills, which can provide you with ways to manage your emotions so that you can identify and reach your goals, one day at a time. 

ADULTS

AGES 27 AND UP

Life is full of stress, and sometimes it feels like it’s just too much.  Feelings such as anxiety, depression, frustration, and grief can take a toll on our ability to function at our best.  Working with a therapist can help you manage these emotions through the development of healthy coping skills.  At Glickman Psychological Services, one of our therapists will engage in conversations with you about real-life situations and assist you with identifying and implementing strategies that will help you manage these emotions and feel like yourself again. 

PARENTS

ALL AGES

Parenting can be very rewarding but also very challenging.  The same children who you love so much may test limits, push your buttons, or engage in power struggles.  You may feel frustrated when it takes a long time to get through the morning or nighttime routine, or helpless because you don’t know how to help your child who is struggling with their emotions.  Perhaps you would like your child to be more open with you, or you just don’t feel confident as a parent.  There are many times when parents could benefit from support by working with a child therapist, and it may not be feasible or desirable for the child to participate in therapy.  The good news is that therapy exclusively with parents often creates change as effectively as working with both the parents and child. 

At Glickman Psychological Services, our licensed child and family psychologists have expertise working with parents to provide support and coping skills to manage parental stress, while also introducing strategies to help you address your child’s behavioral and emotional difficulties, which can strengthen the parent-child relationship.
