How can I find children's psychology near me?
You need to look no further than Advanced Behavioral Centers of DuPage (abcDupage). We have a number of psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors and social workers that have years of experience in providing mental health services for children and adolescents.
Sometimes children face mental, emotional, social and behavioral health challenges. Their fears may be irrational and it can be hard to comfort them or to persuade them that they have nothing to fear. However, counselors are trained in how to do this and they can provide great reassurance to the child.
Just like adults, a percentage of children do suffer from anxiety, depression or other mental health issues.
Our providers will be able to test your child and diagnose any mental health conditions that may be holding them back from making progress in life. Many conditions can be managed without the need for medications. Although our psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners are on hand to prescribe medications if they are absolutely necessary.
What does seeing a psychologist entail?
Depending on the age of the child, our mental health providers may simply talk to your child. Or in some instances they can use play therapy as a means to diagnose and also treat the child.
It doesn't have to be scary or confronting or alarming in any way. Many children enjoy having another adult to talk to that is outside of their immediate family or school environment.
So rest assured that your search for a children's psychology near me has been worthwhile if you utilize our services.
