Mental Health

The American Psychiatric Association notes that mental health is the foundation for emotions, thinking, communication, learning, resilience and self-esteem and that it is key to relationships, personal and emotional well-being and contributing to community or society. Therapy helps with making positive changes in the brain and body. Mental Health Therapy will improve your child’s behavior and help them learn to regulate their emotions in all settings (school, home and community).

Who can benefit ?

Everyone! Those who struggle with mental health and even those that consider themselves mentally healthy can benefit from Therapy. Everyone can benefit from having a non-judgmental space for individuals to explore their thoughts, emotions and behaviors, learn healthy coping mechanisms, talk about things that are on your mind and important to you and help you grow as a person gaining insight on who you are. A therapist can help improve a person’s communication skills, manage stress and anxiety, and set and achieve personal goals. Even mentally healthy people can benefit from this introspective process, gaining a deeper understanding of themselves and their motivations.
