At Marina Barbosa PsychHealth, I specialize in providing expert therapy for children in the heart of Washington, DC. As a psychotherapist, I understand the unique challenges families face, and I am here to support your child's mental and emotional well-being.

Why Therapy for Children Matters

Children, like adults, can encounter challenges that impact their mental health. Therapy for children is essential because it:

· Fosters emotional expression – Therapy provides a safe space for children to express and understand their emotions, promoting emotional intelligence.

· Builds coping skills – When children receive counseling, they learn valuable coping skills that help them navigate stress, anxiety, and other challenges they may face.

· Allows for early intervention – If your child is exhibiting unwanted behaviors, therapy is a great place to address these problems early on. This helps to prevent potential long-term emotional and behavioral concerns, setting a positive foundation for the future.

My Approach to Child Therapy

At Marina Barbosa PsychHealth, my child therapy sessions are tailored to the unique needs of each child. I utilize evidence-based approaches that include play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and art and expressive therapies. I aim to create a warm, inviting space where children feel comfortable expressing themselves and work collaboratively with parents, teachers, and other professionals to provide comprehensive support for children.
