Child Therapy Services

During this time in your child’s life, they face daily stressors and many unfamiliar situations. Unfortunately, they are ill-equipped at this stage in their development to fully identify and process these complex experiences.

This can lead to behavior that’s out of character for your child. You may notice any of the following: aggressive behavior toward self and others, anxiety when separating from friends and family, constantly seeking reassurance, difficulty making and maintaining social connections, inability to identify and communicate feelings, irrational thoughts and worries, minimal ability to tolerate frustration.

Not only do we offer child therapy services, at our wellness center in NJ, we provide support for you too.
