Individual Therapy in Chestnut Hill

Helping Children and Teens Confidently Express Their Feelings and Needs

Your child is struggling emotionally, I understand how difficult that can be. Maybe your child just hasn't seemed like themselves since experiencing a death or major change. They are more moody and irritable, or they seem sad and withdrawn. They may be less interested in things they used to love. You might feel embarrassed to open up about what you’re really going through, even to family and friends. Getting help from a therapist like me can help you and your child talk freely about what’s bothering them.

Here Are Some Specific Challenges That I Can Help Your Child With

Your child may be feeling:

·  Sad

·  angry

·  scared

·  worried

·  powerless

These can be very overwhelming and individual therapy can help. 

As Your Child’s Therapist, I Can Help Them Confidently Express Their Feelings and Needs

I'm Kim Wheeler Poitevien, and I'm a therapist who is qualified to help your child confidently express their feelings and needs. I've worked with kids and teens in their homes, schools, residential placements, and hospitals. My experience and training in behavior, attachment, and trauma have helped me understand how kids process changes and can struggle with big issues.

I understand what they may be going through and how unsafe the world can feel, that's why I provide a safe place with me in my office to work along side them in their healing. Most people would describe me as open, calm, and playful, which is helpful for working with children. Every child is invited to bring whatever is present for them and arrive just as they are.

Therapy Can Improve Your Child's Life and Yours

I involve parents in the therapeutic process as your child's life definitely impacts yours. Individual therapy can provide you and your child the support you need to help you readjust. Even if you’re feeling lost now, I can help guide in making lasting, positive changes in your lives. Individual Therapy can help your child:

·  feel more comfortable in school

·  start expressing their emotional wants and needs to loved ones

·  manage tough emotions

·  improve communication with parents

·  feel happier

·  stop feeling worried all the time

It’s not easy managing your tough situation but the good news is that it's possible for your child to feel better. I have the experience to help you.
