Raising kids can be tough. Sometimes we need extra support as parents. Sometimes our kids are dealing with a lot – school, family, friends. Therapy can help. If your child is dealing with behavior issues, ADHD, or relationship problems they could benefit from children therapy.
Sometimes it helps to have someone else to bounce ideas off of – for both parents and kids. Someone in your corner that has no bias in the outcome … just the best interests of your family system.
Studio B’s experienced and skilled child and adolescent therapists can support your family during difficult times and in building new skills to help your family relate to each other better.
We are not isolated as a single unit. We operate in systems. At Studio B we work to navigate the family system so the whole system gets more healthy.
We work on communication and power dynamics between parents and kids, siblings, and others impacting the family.
We help kids get better at making friends and knowing what it means to be a good friend. We help them learn how to navigate and advocate for themselves and address peer pressure with.
We help work on frustration tolerance and self regulation so kids can be more successful in their social relationships and at school even when things are hard and frustrating.
When children have been hurt we help them make sense of it based on their developmental level and help their loved ones create meaning after negative experiences so the child can feel safe again.
And … we tackle these tough situations in a fun and playful way. Play is how we all learn best. Kids use play to make sense of their world and navigate their environments. Play helps them understand, gain a sense of control, and build structure to experiences.
