All you want is for your child to be healthy and happy

Your child seems to be struggling and you don’t know what to do. They seem depressed, anxious, and unsure of themselves. They’re afraid to trying new things and it feels as if they have stopped participating fully in life. Your child is experiencing enormous stress and pressure to succeed and get good grades to keep up with everyone at school.

Although they’ve always enjoyed spending time with their family and friends, you’ve noticed that they’ve been spending more time alone. When you ask what’s wrong, they can’t seem to find the words. You feel more and more disconnected from your child and its difficult to see them feeling so depressed and discouraged.

You’re worried your child’s problems will only continue to grow and hold them back from their full potential. You want them to have a good life, to make safe and healthy choices, to find a passion that lights them up. You are ready to find your child some help so they can thrive and live fully again.

What our child and teen therapy offers

It’s hard to see your child struggle, but you’re not alone. At Hope + Wellness, we work with kids and teens to provide a safe, supportive space for them to learn and practice the skills needed to manage their emotions, thoughts, and actions. All children experience stress and adversity at some point in their lives and may often not yet have the skills needed to overcome them. Therapy is a healthy way for your child or teen to work through some of the things in life they may be struggling with and to develop greater resilience.

Support for your child’s depression, anxiety, and stress

We specialize in working with children and teens with depression, anxiety, stress, and life adjustment. At Hope+Wellness, parents come to us to help their children learn healthy and balanced ways of coping with emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in order to help set them up to best succeed in life.
