New View Psychology specializes in providing mental health therapy to children and adolescents. Our team of experienced and compassionate professionals are committed to providing evidence-based interventions to promote emotional well-being and support healthy development.
Mental health concerns in children and adolescents are common, with as many as one in five young people experiencing a mental health condition at any given time. These concerns can range from mild to severe, and can include issues such as anxiety, depression, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), behavioral problems, and trauma-related disorders. Therapy can be a critical tool for addressing these concerns and supporting the mental health and well-being of young people.
One of the most common mental health concerns in children and adolescents is anxiety. This can manifest in a variety of ways, such as excessive worry, panic attacks, and social anxiety. Anxiety can impact a young person’s ability to engage in school, activities, and social relationships, and can contribute to long-term mental health problems if left untreated. Therapy can help children and adolescents with anxiety by providing a safe and supportive environment to explore their feelings and develop coping strategies, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and mindfulness-based interventions.
Depression is another mental health concern that can impact children and adolescents. It can lead to feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyable. Depression can have serious consequences for a young person’s academic and social functioning, and can increase the risk of self-harm and suicide. Therapy can be an effective treatment for depression by providing young people with the tools to manage their symptoms and develop a positive self-image.
Behavioral problems, such as oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) and conduct disorder (CD), can also impact children and adolescents. These disorders can include symptoms such as aggression, impulsivity, and difficulty following rules. They can negatively impact a young person’s relationships with peers and authority figures, and can lead to involvement with the juvenile justice system. Therapy can be an important tool for addressing behavioral problems by helping young people develop coping strategies and communication skills that can improve their interactions with others.
Trauma-related disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), can also impact children and adolescents. These disorders can be caused by a variety of traumatic experiences, such as physical or sexual abuse, natural disasters, or witnessing violence. Therapy can be an effective treatment for trauma-related disorders by providing a safe and supportive environment in which young people can process their experiences and develop coping strategies for managing their symptoms.
Other mental health concerns that can impact young people include ADHD, eating disorders, and substance abuse. Therapy can be an important part of treatment for these concerns by providing young people with the tools to manage their symptoms and develop positive coping strategies.
