Children's Therapy in Half Moon Bay, CA, for a Brighter Future

The compassionate therapists at Mindful Child & Family Therapy know that children face unique challenges regarding interpersonal relationships, anxiety, pressure at school, high sensitivity, difficulty regulating emotions, and digital distractions. We not only understand these challenges, but we can help children navigate these challenges while gently encouraging them to build emotional resilience and develop healthy coping mechanisms. Our warm, wise, and empathic therapists in Half Moon Bay, California, can help your child begin their healing journey and will assist them as they move through life.

Our Evidence-Based Child Therapy

As your child begins their therapeutic journey, our therapists will create a plan based on their specific needs. We use evidence-based modalities, including Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS). As they attune to your child’s specific needs and temperament, our wise and caring therapists combine these techniques in elegant ways for the most effective, compassionate treatment for your child.

How Our Therapy Approaches Benefit You & Your Child

We will support your child in an age-appropriate manner throughout their therapeutic journey. Our therapy services help your child manage their emotions, encourage self-compassion, and promote self-awareness. With our approaches, you can expect your child to benefit in the following ways:

  • Obtaining a sense of Self-Leadership by developing a strong awareness of and relationship with different aspects of themselves, including their emotions
  • Improving emotional regulation by supplying tools to handle emotions, which can reduce the occurrence of defiance, tantrums, and other problematic behavior
  • Enhancing self-confidence as we address high sensitivity and low self-esteem
  • Empowerment through coping skills, which can be helpful for OCD, anxiety, trauma, grief, and loss

Our therapists will coordinate with you to ensure you—as the main attachment figures in your child’s life—have the strategies to help your child on their journey to emotional regulation and well-being. Our therapists will invite you to meet for parent consultations on a regular (weekly or bi-weekly) basis so they can support you with the most effective interventions at home to promote mental health and foster a healing family dynamic.
