Special Treatment for Children, Teens & College Students

Children Teen and College TherapyDr. Alexander’s experience with kids transitioning through the developmental cycle was solidified at:

  • The Children's Psychiatric Institute of John Umstead Hospital
  • The Children’s Unit at Dorothea Dix Hospital
  • The Counseling Center at NCSU

Critical issues in development include managing the process of growth and self-discovery, and learning how to cope with social, behavioral, academic, and family problems (divorce/custody issues). Problems with concentration, distractibility, memory, and learning disorders can create havoc for anyone in an academic setting, and this can have a detrimental effect on mood, school adjustment, and self-esteem. 

Children  Play therapy is a safe and non-threatening environment that helps children express their feelings and resolve conflicts.

Adolescents  Teens use a modified form of play therapy that helps them develop self-awareness,
self-esteem, and social interaction skills.

College Students  Individual or group therapy helps students understand and resolve conflicts that interfere with independence, socialization, and academic performance.
