Charlottesville Child Therapy: Balancing Emotional Expression

Charlottesville Counseling for Children recognizes the natural frustrations kids face, yet acknowledges that some may become upset too easily or remain agitated for extended periods. Rather than displaying outward behaviors, these children might internalize their feelings, becoming withdrawn or overly clingy. Others might engage in power struggles. At Wyndhurst Counseling & Wellness, we aim to lessen the intensity of these reactions, fostering a calmer, more balanced way of life.

Reach out to us today at 434-237-2655 to arrange a virtual session or visit us for an in-person consultation, conveniently located a brief drive away in Lynchburg, VA.

Understanding Depression in Children: Signs and Support

Children, just like adults, can encounter depression, and the signs can be both visible and subtle. In a counseling setting, childhood depression might manifest as constant crying, deep sadness, or, more unexpectedly, through heightened frustration, anger, control-seeking behaviors, and aggression. At Wyndhurst Counseling & Wellness, we pave the way for children to communicate these complex feelings, offering a safe space to explore and express their emotions, moving towards healing and understanding.


Children can experience anxiety, which is often described as extreme nervousness. They might worry excessively about schoolwork or fear potential harm if something were to happen to their parents, among other concerns. While some children can easily navigate life, others find their worries constantly clinging to their thoughts, making it difficult to shake them off. These anxieties can affect a child’s sleep, mood, attachment to parents, or peer interactions. At Wyndhurst Counseling and Wellness, we offer a supportive space for children in Charlottesville to voice their fears, work through them, and embark on a path toward wellness and happiness.
