Child Therapists in Jefferson County

Seeking therapy for your child is courageous. It is important that you and your child feel safe, supported and aligned with the help you are receiving. The relationship between a therapist and a client, more than any other factor, is what determines a successful therapeutic experience. We encourage you to find the therapist that feels most authentic to you and your child.

We have created this resource page to give to caregivers when our services are full or when our model of therapy does not meet the needs of a specific child. As a professional agency, we do not ethically endorse or recommend specific providers in our community.

The following is an alphabetical list of therapists we are aware of in our area who see children under 12. Psychology Today is also hub for providers in Jefferson County.
