Children & Teens Therapy

Children & Teens

Meghan L Reitz & Associates offers counseling services specifically designed for children and adolescents. Our child and teen clients require therapists who understand and specialize in their developmental and emotional needs. Our counselors can help them through difficult times and set them on a path for a better future.

Therapy with children and adolescents can take a variety of forms. Our counselors will often use play therapy, which incorporates a child's imagination in play to provide a greater understanding of the young client's emotions. Adolescents and teens will often engage in more traditional talk therapy, but specific techniques may be used to help create a more comfortable setting for the child to relate to and develop trust with their therapist.

Our therapists will also collaborate when appropriate with the child's parents, school or others to gather information and suggest opportunities to involve them in the child's or teen's treatment at home. Our therapists often provide counseling for children and adolescent clients for issues of:

  • Depression
  • Defiance and Acting Out
  • Substance Abuse
  • Social Problems
  • Family Communication
  • Eating Disorders
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD)
  • OCD
  • Behavioral Problems
  • Adjustment to Change
  • Grief and Loss
  • Academic Troubles
  • Anger Management
  • Managing Stress & Anxiety
