Child Therapists

As you navigate the process of divorce or separation, you may find yourself needing a therapist – for yourself, your child, your entire family, or all of the above. Choosing the right therapist is a daunting and important job. We’ve hand-selected some that therapists we know and have worked with, or who have come highly recommended by members of our community.

The professionals listed below have been very successful working with kids. Many of them have specialties with one gender or age group.
