A child’s mental health is such an important factor when considering overall health, success in school, self-confidence, and ability to engage with friends and family. Symptoms of mental health distress for kids can be different than the symptoms that appear in adults. Some of the symptoms children may experience are physical complaints, such as headache or stomachache, even when there is no physical cause, excessive worry, acting out, frequent bad dreams, bathroom accidents, declining grades, trouble sleeping, or changes in weight or appetite.
Therapy can provide a place for children to learn to identify and express emotions, gain coping skills to deal with difficult situations, practice healthy communication, and build self esteem overall. The therapists at the Counseling Center for Cinco Ranch provide a safe, supportive, and therapeutic environment for children and their families to grow. Our counselors utilize Cognitive-behavioral therapy, Trauma-focused Cognitive-behavioral therapy, Family therapy, and Parenting training.
Some of the issues addressed by our counselors regarding children are:
- Defiant behavior at home or at school
