• Children, Adolescents, & Teens

    At Twin Cities Mental Health & Couples Center, we know that you want to know what is best for your child. Reaching out for outside help can be extremely difficult, and that is why our therapists work collaboratively with parents and go at a pace that works best for your family. Our clinicians help to provide knowledge and guidance together as a family and individual with your child on an extensive range of emotional and mental areas of difficulty. We are trained in numerous psychotherapy modalities to best fit your child’s unique needs.

    Effective Psychotherapy Approaches for Children, Teen, and Adolescents:

    Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a mindfulness-focused psychotherapy that helps children, teens, and adolescents stay focused on the present moment and accept their inner emotions.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) brings awareness to distorted or confused thinking patterns and replaces these thoughts to provide more appropriate behaviors and feelings.

    Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of talk therapy that is effective for older adolescents who may be experiencing suicidal thoughts, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, have Borderline Personality Disorder, or engage in self-harm. DBT encourages individuals to take responsibility for their problems and incorporates an educational component to provide skills for managing distressing symptoms.

    Family Therapy involves all family members and is a form of talk therapy that focuses on helping the family function more constructively by examining patterns of communication and providing education and support.
