At LifeWorks Psychotherapy Center, we provide psychotherapy to children and adolescents, ages 5–17 years, consulting with parents as needed. Our goal is to help young people through age-appropriate methods of talk, play and art therapy witnessing their inner journey and helping them meet their developmental, emotional and situational needs in authentic and healthy ways.
Support and Compassion
We support children and adolescents through major trauma, anxiety, depression, and difficult life transitions, such as parental divorce, sickness, and grief. We also work with youth who suffer from addictions, eating disorders, and self-harm.
We offer compassion and understanding care for young people who need help, guidance and clarity in the confusing and changing world in which they are growing up. Here are some examples of the types of concerns we can address with you and your child or adolescent.
