Therapy For Children

Our child therapists, psychologists counselors and child psychiatrists in the Milwaukee area focus on issues with children, teens, and adolescents with a variety of mental health issues. We understand that mental health issues in children can worsen with time without treatment and persist into adulthood. We work hard to get to the root of their issues to come up with a treatment plan they can follow to work through their emotions.

Common Issues We Treat

  • Unprovoked Aggression


  • Communication Issues

  • Anxiety/Constant Worrying

  • Recurring Nightmares & Night Terrors

  • Sudden Academic Decline

  • Self-Destructive Behavior

  • Bullying

  • Grief

  • Sexual/Emotional/Physical Abuse

  • Relocation Issues

  • Family Substance Abuse/Addiction

  • Emotional Numbness/Social Withdrawal

  • Witnessing Traumatic Events

Childhood, teen and adolescent mental health issues can have a profound effect on every aspect of our lives. We learn about what your child is struggling with, their short term and long term goals, and create a customized treatment plan to help them achieve these goals. 

At American Behavioral Clinics (ABC), recovery is possible.

We Treat Childhood Mental Illness Together

We know that treatment for the variety of mental health illnesses in children, teens and adolescents cannot be approached with a one-size-fits-all treatment plan. We work with you to discover what the root cause of your childs issue is and treat it from there. For example, a child acting out in school or bullying other classmates can be a result of anxiety or another mental health issue. We work with you and your child to discover this and determine what their goals are. From there, we come up with a treatment plan that they can follow given their lifestyle, maximizing the likelihood of recovery.
