Find Lifetime Support at Behaven Kids
As a therapy center that simulates a daycare setting, we recognize the importance of building positive child behaviors. For over 20 years, we have helped change the lives of children everywhere. By working with us, you can see our passion for helping children and their families grow and succeed. Our Specialized Day Program runs from 6 am to 6 pm from Monday to Friday, excluding weekends. Children can be pulled out of the program for meetings with our mental health professionals for individual therapy sessions without parents needing to schedule a special appointment!
At Behaven Kids, our therapists provide practical solutions for challenging problems, offering tools for both parents and children to address and resolve behavioral concerns, mental health issues, and trauma responses through techniques provided in individual and family therapy and counseling sessions. Parents struggling with children’s issues can create a tension-filled home for both sides. Therapy and counseling can help children and adolescents become more aware of their challenging emotions , work through them, and cope with life’s difficulties that may impact their mental health.
Our Therapy Models Offered At Behaven Kids
For children and adolescents, we work with children experiencing a variety of scenarios, including children experiencing anxiety or depression, excessive impulsiveness, social withdrawal, anger issues, and other forms of negative behavior. We also utilize elements of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to better help and support our children. To help children and their families, we offer three therapy models:
- CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy): Cognitive behavioral therapy is a form of therapy that works for both children and parents. It focuses on recognizing patterns in how emotion and thought influence behavior and is considered a useful therapy for children with a diagnosed mental health condition. Through CBT sessions, we can help teach children how to engage and work through solutions through techniques such as play therapy, trauma-focused CBT, exposure therapy, and other demonstration. CBT can be conducted through individual, parent-child, and family-based sessions.
- CPP (Child parent Psychotherapy): Child-Parent psychotherapy works as an intervention model for children who have experienced a traumatic event and are experiencing mental health and behavior problems. Based on attachment theory, CPP works to support and strengthen relationships between children and their parents to restore better social learning and cognitive behaviors.
- DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy): Dialectical Behavior therapy is a structured form of therapy that reinforces mindfulness and pattern recognition. Similar to CBT, this form of therapy addresses severe forms of emotional and behavioral problems, including anger issues, rebellious behavior, and other intense emotions. Through DBT therapy, both children and parents can learn management techniques, including coping skills, problem-solving behavior, and forms of positive reinforcement.
Alongside these models, our mental health therapists utilize family psychotherapy, individual psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, and group psychoeducation. We work with an evidence-based approach to teach children and parents how to be aware of current issues and find ways to cope and grow. Everyone can benefit from the tools and techniques provided in sessions. Our therapy services are provided in our outpatient clinic and as part of the Specialized Day Program.
