Finding a therapist for you child can be a stressful endeavor. Often times therapists whom work with children are in short supply. It takes a special mix of skills and personality traits to make an effective child therapist. Children and adolescents benefit from a therapist that knows how to tailor standard therapeutic techniques, designed with adults in mind, to their clients’ age. Appropriate adjustments need to be made depending on criteria such as attention span, maturity level, etc.
