Based on the needs of the child, therapy can take many forms and may look quite different from one child to the next. However, the ultimate goal of therapy is to provide children and teens with a safe, supportive, confidential space to engage with a mental health professional who can help them understand themselves and their experiences. Our therapy focuses on supporting kids through a myriad of life experiences and helping them navigate personal and developmental changes.
Fit Mind Cleveland offers therapy for children with different types of emotional and behavioral challenges. Our professionals are trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches to working with children. Our interventions are selected and tailored based on the child’s age and presenting problem. We provide therapy to children age 6 and above in conjunction with parental guidance sessions. For parents of children under the age of five, we offer parental guidance sessions and psychological assessments.
All therapy sessions are by appointment only and last 45-55 minutes. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach, which means your therapist will work to devise a plan based on you and your child's unique needs. For more information, we recommend visiting the Payments and Insurance page.
How the Process Works
We understand that for children and parents, therapy can be overwhelming and even intimidating, so below is a simplified overview of our approach to child and adolescent counseling.
We typically start off with meeting the parents the first session and the child the second session to create a personalized treatment plan to meet everyone's goals.
Choosing Our Path
We offer a variety of different methods of therapy that will depends on the child’s diagnosis, needs and age.
Over the course of treatment, a relationship is built with the child or adolescent to provide a safe place to express thoughts/feelings and build a therapeutic bond.
