If you think your child might benefit from seeing a therapist, you’re probably correct. You know your child, and you know that your hunches can be pretty accurate. So trust yourself. But, finding the right children’s therapist can be intimidating, almost enough to keep you from even trying! Right? After all, trusting someone to help with your child’s mental health is not the easiest thing to do.
If you are lucky, you might get a recommendation from a close friend, a doctor, or a teacher. You will still want to do a little investigating on your own, though, and talk to some therapists, voice to voice on the phone, before you decide. So get your questions ready!
