Individual Therapy

Individual psychotherapy is a form of mental health treatment that involves meeting one-on-one with a mental health therapist to address emotional and behavioral issues.

At PM Kidz Plus, we take important considerations when providing individual psychotherapy to children and adolescents.

The following steps are generally involved in the process of a psychiatric evaluation at PM Kidz Plus.

Developmental Considerations

The therapist will consider the patient’s developmental stage and tailor the therapy to meet their specific needs. This may involve using age-appropriate language and techniques, toys and games, as well as adjusting the pacing and frequency of therapy sessions.

Parent Involvement

Parents or caregivers should be involved in the therapy process, as they play an important role in the child's overall well-being. The therapist may meet with the parent separately or involve them in the therapy session to support the child's progress.

Evidence-Based Interventions

The therapist will use evidence-based interventions that have been shown to be effective in treating the patient's specific mental health concerns. These may include cognitive-behavioral therapy, play therapy, family therapy, or other approaches.


The therapist will be flexible and adapt the therapy approach as needed to meet the patient's changing needs and goals. This may involve adjusting the therapy approach or incorporating other interventions, such as medication management or school-based interventions.

Collaborative Approach

The therapist will work collaboratively with other healthcare providers, such as the child's pediatrician or school counselor, to ensure that the child's overall needs are being met.

Individual psychotherapy can be a valuable tool for addressing mental health concerns in children and adolescents.

By tailoring the therapy to the patient's developmental needs, involving parents or caregivers, using evidence-based interventions, remaining flexible, and taking a collaborative approach, our mental health professionals can provide effective and compassionate care to support the child's overall well-being.
