What can a kid expect coming to therapy for the first time?

Therapy for Kids

What is the first session with a therapist like for a kid? Does a therapist in a corduroy blazer make you talk about your deepest darkest fears? Spoiler alert: the answer is no! Most therapists prefer getting to know you a little bit first. They call it “rapport building.”

Going to therapy might even just give you some “tools” to help you out with communicating better with parents. How long does it take to work through and “issue” in therapy, and is therapy ever over? As you’ll find out in this short video with Child & Teen Counseling’s Robert Jimenez, therapy is really different for everyone.
