Child Individual and Family Therapy

Child Individual and Family Therapy

At Genesis Therapy Center, we have been providing services to families and individuals for over 25 years, and with that history, we bring a unique approach to therapy. When it comes to the treatment of children, we offer options that are developmentally appropriate for different age groups. You wouldn’t expect an adult and a child to be treated in the same way, and the same goes for different age levels in children.

When applicable, we work with children by using art and play therapies, with a focus on interactive activities to keep them engaged in the therapy process.

Family Systems Approach

Above all, we use a Family Systems-based approach to child therapy, which is built on the idea that the interaction between family members—as well as their patterns of communication—have significant effects on how children grow up.

At the core of a Family Systems style of therapy is one goal: restructuring the family and building a hierarchy that establishes the parents as being in charge. Some other goals include encouraging individual growth and acceptance for close families while discouraging the rigid boundaries that often separate members of disengaged families.
