Clinical child & adolescent psychology is a sub-specialty in clinical psychology that applies scientific knowledge to the delivery of psychological services to young children and adolescents within their social context. I work with children, adolescents and young adults between the ages of 4-21, and their parents.
As a child psychologist, I have an understanding of the basic psychological needs of children and adolescents. Including how their family and other social contexts influence their socio-emotional adjustment, development, mental and behavioural disorders and their health status.
Therapy can help with the following issues(and more):
Treating psychological, cognitive, emotional, developmental, and behavioural issues.
Trauma and loss.
Health related problems(adjusting to new diagnosis, learning to adhere to treatment requirements, etc.).
Stress and coping related to developmental change and transitions(new school, parental divorce and separation, etc.)
Problems in social context(social issues with peers etc.)
