Anxiety in Children and Adolescents

When we become parents we know there will be challenges, but most of us do not expect our child to be suffering with anxiety during what should be the most care-free time in their lives, their childhood.  All kids are special and have their unique challenges and our goal is to help those experiencing anxiety.  Anxiety in kids may present as a fear or worry but can also make children irritable and angry.  Children experiencing anxiety may have trouble sleeping, headaches or stomachaches.  Sometimes they keep their worries to themselves and symptoms can be missed, especially with older kids.  We want to provide you and your family the tools to meet anxiety head-on and thrive!  Our focus is the child between 6 and 12 years of age experiencing mild to extreme symptoms.  Call us to partner with you and help your kiddos.

"Blake has been getting out of bed more and more to sleep with us.  He says he is scared and has a hard time falling asleep. The dark and quietness of his room seem to send his mind racing.  He also recently mentioned things at school aren’t great and this week he’s had several stomach aches on the way there.  I reassure him and try to be as patient as possible, but maybe it’s time to get more help.  It’s hard seeing such a little person worry so much"
