Happy Spring!

 

Choices Psychotherapy is pleased to announce that we have expanded our office and added 3 new therapists.  We now have additional evening hours available for clients that can not get away during the day.  These therapists are profiled below. 

 

Our website is receiving a makeover that will occur over time and clients can securely refer themselves on-line to see a therapist.

 

We look forward to continuing our work with you and greatly appreciate your support. 

 

Sincerely,


Susan Davis, LICSW

Children's Mental Health

Children don't always have the language and/or cognitive ability to tell an adult that they are sad, anxious, or depressed.  Their symptoms may present as a stomach ache or a head ache, not wanting to go to daycare or school, they may be clingy, unable to sleep or sleep too much, cry when parents/caregivers leave or if there is a change in their routine or environment.  Children are very observant and do react to events in their life, just as adults do.  Things that may cause a child distress and lead to depression or anxiety include:

  • Family members arguing/fighting 
  • Separation/divorce
  • Moving
  • Changing schools 
  • Illness
  • Death in the family 

If you know of a child that is displaying symptoms, not related to a medical condition, as a result of one of these issues, please call our intake office for an appointment at 952-544-6806.
