Children need therapy too

A 12-old-girl in therapy tells me: "I am always sad. My mom asked if someone was bullying me. I have a lot of friends, and no one bullies me. My mom A divorced. But I am not. I feel guilty for worrying my parents."

Over the last five years, the number of children and teenagers reaching out for therapy has increased significantly; sometimes I have got emails directly from children who are minors and don't know how to convince their parents to get them to therapy. When parents write to me, most emails talk about how their children are well-behaved and add that they may need just two-three sessions. They always need more, though, because they are dealing with difficult emotions.
