    How Is Child Therapy?

    Impacting the way they learn, act, and feel, many children across the country have issues that arise during their developmental years. Thankfully, child therapy helps to treat some of these problems. You can get help for your child who is suffering from behavioral or emotional issues. In therapy, your child can express their feelings and learn healthy ways to communicate needs and emotions. This is done through play, structured games, art, and talking.

    How Counseling Can Help Your Child

    When your child has a problem that they can’t cope with alone, their Sano therapist is there to help. Our therapists invite the parents or caregivers to be primary players in the treatment team of young children and adolescents.

    Sano Counseling Can Help

    Our child therapists at Sano Counseling focus on modeling a secure attachment relationship by working with the parents and family. We focus on parent-child interaction to foster a sense of safety and understanding between the two parties. We also work to identify maladaptive coping strategies through teen counseling, redirecting towards adaptive coping skills.   We also offer family sessions, which are focused around not telling the child or teen that they are “wrong,” but instead practicing the expression of validation while also maintaining parental roles.
