A Distracted Mind Can Keep Children Off Track

UMatter Counseling has speciliasts in children mental health that treat many common issues such as ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), and Adjustment Disorders; all of which can have an impact on your child’s academic performance & relationship success in friendships and the family unit.

Children with ADD/ADHD can struggle with staying focused & completing important tasks. Children dealing with major life changes, such as a parents’ divorce or moving to a new school, can develop Adjustment Disorders when the lack of coping mechanism leads to anxiety, depression, and negative behaviors in school and at home.

Personalized Therapy for Children & Teens To Build Lifetime Skills

Oftentimes we end up not only doing therapy with the child, but the family unit and parents or other family members individually as well. 

Therapy for children diagnosed with ADD/ADHD will consist of the use of CBT to strengthen executive functioning skills to help the client to better identify emotions behind their behaviors and learn to effectively regulate emotions.

For children dealing with adjustment disorders from major life transitions treatment for this diagnosis could include CBT psychotherapy, family therapy, and expressive arts therapy; all geared towards children to help them better identify and manage stress. Teaching them healthy coping mechanisms for anger and impulse control will benefit them not only for the specific situation they’re having trouble adjusting to, but for all of their life to follow.

Negative behavioral issues can stem from instense emotions without the appropriate coping tools & systems.

Enhancing family communication and understanding leads to a more harmonious and supportive home environment.

Families benefit as child therapy often involves parental guidance, equipping parents with strategies to effectively support their child’s emotional well-being.

By addressing emotional and psychological challenges early in life, therapy can prevent more severe mental health issues from developing in the future.

Improving a child’s mental health through therapy can lead to better academic and social outcomes, reducing family concerns about their future prospects.
