FAQs About Child Therapy
What Is A Child Therapist?
Child therapists, or child psychologists, specialize in treating children with behavioral, emotional, or mental disorders.
These highly trained professionals may work in a clinical setting in private practices, as part of a medical team, or in a school environment.
Many child therapists are trained play therapists. Play therapy allows trained mental health practitioners who specialize in play therapy, to assess and understand children’s play.
Further, play therapy is utilized to help children cope with difficult emotions and find solutions to problems. Visit our play therapy resource page.

Does Insurance Cover Child Therapy Sessions?
Yes. The federal parity law requires insurance companies to treat mental and behavioral health and substance use disorder coverage equal to (or better than) medical/surgical coverage. Read our Payment & Insurance page.
Does Online Counseling Work With Kids?
There are many licensed mental health professionals who treat children and teens online. For the most part, children can receive a similar level of treatment online that they receive at in-person appointments.
Online therapy appointments may take place via video, live chat, phone, or messaging. Most therapy sessions can be conducted via a smartphone, tablet, or computer.
