Child & Teen Anxiety Counseling
Stephanie Legendre, LPC-S, Registered Play Therapist
Some children exhibit separation anxiety, perfectionistic behaviors, generalized anxiety, or anxiety due to a traumatic or stressful experience. Children and their helpful parents need to learn ways to soothe their physiology, fight their anxious thoughts, and feel empowered that the anxiety can be mastered.
The ADHD child may have difficulty with social skills as well as low self-esteem caused by a perception that they are bad. Helping these children become empowered and using playful games to decrease impulsive behaviors, decrease distractions, and increase performance on a task is some of the things that are helpful for children with this diagnosis.
Play therapy and expressive techniques for older children aand teens helps externalize children’s anxiety so they can master these fears.
