Child Adolescent Issues


Childhood And Adolescent Disorders

Childhood and adolescence can be challenging for a number of reasons due to physical and psychological events. Behavior changes are typically caused by factors that are biochemical, environmental, or perhaps a combination of the two.

Treatment For Childhood And Adolescent Disorders

Many of our counselors at Sherman Counseling have extensive experience working with younger clients. We typically begin by having a session with both the parent/guardian and the child. This helps us gather what it may be that is troubling your child and which behaviors are stressful to the parent/guardian. We encourage the parent/guardian to play a role in the healing process or management of symptoms of the child. We try to keep the parents involved and have them develop a deeper understanding of the issues that their child is attempting to manage.

We realize that as a parent, seeing your child struggle can be a very difficult experience. At Sherman Counseling, we try to assist in any way we can to alleviate the stress that goes along with parenting a teenager.

In many cases, a young person will begin to experience symptoms of anxiety or depression in response to a significant life change, such as:

  • Divorce
  • Moving to a new Home/City
  • Loss of a family pet
  • Loss of a relative
  • Difficulty making friends
  • Physical or emotional abuse
  • Academic difficulties
  • Bullying
  • Birth of a new sibling
  • Illness of a family member or friend
