Counseling Services for Children and Teens
Every child deserves to live with happiness and joy
It’s perfectly natural and even expected for children and teens to test boundaries and challenge authority every now and then. However, when a young person is exhibiting behavior that’s excessive for their age and lasts longer than 6 months, they may be struggling with oppositional defiant disorder (ODD).
As a parent, it can be very frustrating and overwhelming trying to address issues like defiance and persistent anger towards a parent, family member, teacher, or authority figure. If your child suffers from ODD, you do not have to face this challenging time alone - we’re here to help.
Compassionate Care for Sustainable Change
ODD is a behavior disorder characterized by persistent and frequent patterns of anger, irritability, arguing, and defiance. When left unmanaged, ODD can create social and academic difficulties, as well as additional family stress.
At Cypress, we work with children and teens from all backgrounds and walks of life to help them live a life where happiness and fulfillment are the focus, not rebellion and anger. Using a combination of scientific techniques, creative solutions, and compassionate care, our therapists are committed to helping children and teens find the solutions they need to identify, mitigate, and overpower the root causes of thier ODD.
Characteristics of Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
Solutions to Conquer ODD
At Cypress, we create individually tailored treatment plans to help children and teens identify, manage and mitigate their ODD. When left untreated, ODD can add stress to the family dynamic and negatively impact academic performance, quality of life, and happiness. Using a combination of individual therapy, family therapy, and play therapy (when applicable), we provide your child with the skills they need to interact with parents, family members, teachers, and authority figures in an appropriate and respectful manner.
We understand how ODD can impact your child and your family dynamic, and we don’t expect you to face these challenging times alone. The Cypress family consists of mental health professionals with a wide range of expertise and experience committed to helping your child or teen experience personal development and transformational growth.
