Childhood Anxiety Treatment Looks Different at ResWell

In Addition to Standard Treatment Options, Your Child May Benefit From Our Integrative Therapies:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • CBT is an evidence-based form of talk therapy that helps identify and address negative thought patterns contributing to anxiety in children.
  • With this treatment, your child can learn effective coping skills that help guide them through recurring symptoms and other challenges in the future.
  • CBT can work well with other childhood anxiety treatments, including equine-assisted therapy, neurofeedback, and other forms of talk therapy.

  • Neurofeedback is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment that shows how your child’s brain functions so they learn how their brain reacts to specific triggers.
  • Since anxiety tends to keep the brain in a negative cycle, training the brain with neurofeedback can break the cycle and encourage positive thoughts.
  • Neurofeedback “trains” the brain without altering your child’s brain chemistry, offering positive results without potential side effects.

EquusLed Program

  • EquusLed is equine-assisted psychotherapy that involves interactive horse activities and experiences that can help improve mental health concerns like anxiety and promote emotional growth and learning.
  • Your child can expect to engage in activities and/or unstructured interactions with the horses — no riding is involved.
  • Children learn about themselves and others and then discuss their associated feelings, behaviors, and patterns with our expert child and teen anxiety treatment specialists.

What is the most effective childhood anxiety treatment?

Most patients benefit from a combination of anxiety disorder treatments personalized to their specific situation and needs. Treatment for anxiety may be most effective when combined with cognitive behavioral therapy, equine-assisted therapy, neurofeedback, and other treatment modalities. We believe integrative treatment that includes nutrition, sleep hygiene, mindfulness, and daily physical activity makes the biggest difference for our patients.

How do I know if my child has anxiety?

If your child displays some of the symptoms listed above and those symptoms interfere with daily life, anxiety could be the cause. However, a comprehensive evaluation by a childhood and teen anxiety treatment center is necessary for an accurate diagnosis.

While we do not accept insurance, we provide patients with the documentation necessary to file a claim with their insurance carriers.
