Therapy for children and teens at Anchored Hope is tailored to support both the individual child/teen and also the parents/family in the therapeutic process. We often explain the need for parent involvement in their child’s therapy as a key piece to the therapeutic work. Our providers also often collaborate with the school system/pediatricians/community providers in order to support the client in generalizing coping skills outside of session.
It’s important to note that we only have so many 3 p.m. or later appointment times. We wish we could see every child/teen at an ideal time for the school and sports schedule, but that is not always possible. It is very common for youth to miss school to attend therapy sessions. We work closely with the school to determine the appropriateness of missing school in order to support the whole child (mentally and academically).
