Does Your Child Need Therapy? – 136

Listen On


There's been a significant rise in the number of kids and teens struggling with things like social isolation, grief, anxiety, and depression over the past year.


As I've shared in many of my episodes, these emotions are part of the human experience and not problems in and of themselves.


So how do you determine when your child needs therapy?


In this episode, I share some of the signs and symptoms to look for when deciding whether to pursue therapy for your child, where to find a therapist, the different kinds of mental health providers, and the most common therapeutic approaches for kids.





  • Signs and symptoms to look for when determining whether your child might benefit from therapy.
  • The most common types of mental health professionals and the differences among them.
  • Five of the most common types of therapy used with kids and what makes each unique.
  • How to respond when your child makes a statement about suicide.
  • And much more!
