Therapy with Children and Adolescents

Dr. Hensala provides treatment for children and adolescents within a developmental and family systems framework. To this end, he includes the family in the initial assessment, and the family plays an important role in the ongoing treatment. It is important, for each child, to understand problems in light of his or her current stage of development, stresses at home and at school, and his or her role in the family.
Often treatment includes individual sessions with the child, sessions with parents, and some sessions with the whole family present.
In this way, the entire family is brought to a place of better emotional functioning, benefitting not only the child, but everyone.
