Children and Adolescents
Dr. Isetta uses a variety of ways to help address child and adolescent issues. The most important component in the beginning of therapy with children and adolescents is creating a safe and comfortable environment for them. Since this may be their first time in therapy, feelings of anxiety and uncertainty of what to expect may occur. Dr. Isetta helps put them at ease by discussing the benefits of therapy and how to make it comfortable for them and their needs.
Typically with young children, using play and art therapy allows the child to feel comfortable while having fun tackling the pressing issues at hand. Sometimes, they do not even realize they are doing therapy because it is presented in such a nonthreatening way.
For the older tween and adolescents, Dr. Isetta may use workbooks or other tools to help them communicate how they are feeling. At times, teens may not know exactly why they are feeling a certain way, but just know that they do. Dr. Isetta tries to use books and tools to help them identify what is causing the underlying issue this helps get to the root of the problem and give immediate solutions.
With the increase in demands of our teens, having a safe and positive environment to address these issues can be extremely beneficial for them. Oftentimes, teens needs a space away from peers, family and social media to address what is going on and gain a different perspective of their life.
