Summer Child & Adolescent Services

May 25, 2017|Child & Adolescent

The summer months can be a great time to begin therapy for children & adolescents. Schedules tend to be less hectic and both clinicians and clients may have greater availability and flexibility in their schedules. During the school year, the coveted after-school appointments for child & adolescent therapy services can fill up fast. During summer, it may be easier to fit a morning or mid-day appointment into your family’s schedule.

Therapy may be helpful for children & adolescents experiencing:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Specific phobias
  • Behavioral difficulties
  • Major life changes such as a move, birth of a sibling, or transition to college
  • Low self-esteem
  • Gender identity/curiosity

Therapy may also address:

  • Communication & assertiveness training
  • Social skills training
  • Stress management
  • Behavioral medicine/physical health
  • Families navigating through divorce

To learn more or inquire about an appointment, please call us at (617) 259-1895 or fill out a brief, online intake form.
