Mental Health Therapy
Mental Health Therapy visits focus on providing encouragement and support in order to create a more balanced, loving, and overall successful home life. By working with both the child and the family using proven psychological methods, Mental Health Therapy can help manage and even eliminate a variety of mental illnesses and emotional difficulties.
Who can benefit?
If you happen to notice difficulties in one or more of these areas, an evaluation for treatment may be appropriate:
Withdrawals from friends and family
Irritability that lasts weeks
Loss or lack of interest in once-enjoyed activities
Significant changes in sleep or eating habits
Presence of negative self-talk
Presence of self-harm or harming others
Excessive or irrational worry or fear
Display of anxious behaviors
How We Address It
Children may benefit from mental health therapy even without a diagnosed medical condition. Children who exhibit feelings of worthlessness leading to depression and anxiety, have difficulty paying attention, and often show signs of physical complaints such as fatigue and withdrawal from social activities may require mental health therapy.
“It’s so easy in this day and age to feel helpless and hopeless at times, and not know where to turn for trusted guidance. After finding Marshall Pediatric Therapy, I felt reassured that there was in fact hope for my daughter to get to a place mentally that was healthy. We can get her in for appointments both easily and consistently, and she now looks forward to going to them. This progress brings tears to my eyes and has made such an impact on not only her but our entire family. Marshall Pediatric Therapy is a true blessing!”
Meet Our Therapists
What to Expect at Your First Appointment
At Marshall Pediatric Therapy, we do not follow a one-size-fits-all approach. We very much rely on an integrative therapeutic model. Upon being referred to our practice, during your first visit (also referred to as an initial evaluation), a licensed therapist will determine what is most important to you and your child.
We want to know your child’s history, current abilities and strengths, and confidently address room for improvement. From there, we will be able to provide a variety of assessments in order to construct a customized treatment plan tailored to your child’s individual needs. The frequency of a child’s appointments will be determined by your assigned therapist(s).
