Child and Adolescent Therapy in Westport
Our approach to child and adolescent therapy always includes the family. Usually, we begin the therapy with a session just with the parents followed by three-to-four sessions with the adolescent/young adult. At that point, a diagnostic assessment is developed which the clinician shares with the parents. Together we develop and agree on a treatment program.
We firmly believe that it takes both the therapist and the parents working together to see significant progress. Of course, we share a client’s progress with our entire clinical team to obtain multiple perspectives. Our program is designed for ages 4-21 and can be conducted via teleconference or by a combination of teleconference and in-person sessions.
For those children and adolescents who need a greater depth of therapy we have our CONNECTIONS program, a more intensive form of therapy that involves coaching and counseling throughout the week so as to keep the client in their community as opposed to resorting to a residential program.
