We are The Woodlands premier child & teen trauma therapists.

Let's Talk About It
Loss and Trauma Therapy

Trauma & Loss Therapy for Children

If your child has gone through a trauma or loss, you probably feel just as devastated as they do. Perhaps you’re grieving, too, and having trouble moving through your own feelings. Perhaps your child went through something without you, and you have no idea to help or support them.

Trauma and loss can both have serious repercussions for young kids, and getting the right professional guidance as quickly as possible makes a huge difference. We’ll help your child make sense of what they’ve gone through, and we’ll show you the best ways to help them heal and get back to a happy, carefree childhood as quickly as possible.

Trauma & Loss Therapy for Teens

Maybe your teen was involved in an accident. Perhaps they lost a loved one or experienced something that left them scared. Perhaps your teen is trying to recover from the longer-term effects of abuse or an unstable childhood.

Trauma and loss can hit us any point in life, but when they hit in the tough teen years before a stable sense of self is fully developed, they can cause a great deal of anguish and ongoing suffering. We’ll help your teen move through their intense and difficult thoughts, feelings, and fears, while we help you support their healing at home and at school. We’ll help you find healing and a more-connected “new normal.”

How We Help Children & Teens with Anxiety

With young children, we use play-based therapies supported by research, namely the dyadic model Child-Parent Psychotherapy. As your child plays out the trauma or loss in safe and controlled ways, we help them make sense of their feelings, process their experience, and enhance feelings of safety and security.

With teens, we largely use Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It’s a mouthful, but all you really need to know is that this method has tremendous research and evidence to support its effectiveness. In a carefully controlled and safe therapeutic environment, we’ll help your teen feel like themselves again.

We welcome your involvement in your child’s healing process as much as possible so that you can support them further at home with the methods you learn in session.

We know your whole family needs support to get to a calm and peaceful place.
