Family Therapy for Children & Adolescents
As children and adolescents grow, they continue to develop the family relationships in their lives. From parents and siblings to extended family and new family introductions. When children and adolescents are thrust into a new environment, situation, transition, or even introduced to new family relationships, not every reaction they have may be as expected. Sometimes there are difficulties, conflict, or strain that develop in one or many of theses relationships.
Minnesota Mental Health Clinics offers therapy to assist children and adolescents in exploring and reducing the conflicts in these relationships. The goals for each person vary based on the nature of why they’re seeking help. We individualize each session for the best outcomes in repairing and managing family relationships.
There are many reasons why therapy can be beneficial for relationships:
- Family Help – coping with mental health issues
- Family Therapy
- Court Cases
- Blended Families
- Parenting Issues
- Custody & Visitation & Co-parenting Issues
- Grief & Loss
- Inter-generational Family Therapy
- Relationship Issues
If your child or adolescent is experiencing difficulties, conflict, or strain in any of their family relationships, please contact Minnesota Mental Health Clinic to see our experienced therapists.
