We are experts at child/teen CBT and other science-based techniques for managing anxiety, family conflict, insomnia, ADHD and more. Designed by Dr. Chandler Chang and Dr. Hilary Adams, two expert child psychologists in Los Angeles, Therapy Lab Kids offers therapy plans delivered by a collaborative team of therapists.
Book a welcome call, and we’ll match you with the best therapist for your family's goals.
The plans are brief and efficient. We measure progress as we go to make sure they work for you.
Plans are based on evidence-based protocols—therapy approaches supported by rigorous review.
These plans not only treat a specific concern (like child anxiety) but can also prevent future concerns.
Our plans are meant to be timely and affordable. We offer immediate availability via remote therapy in 8 states.
If you’re waiting on a traditional therapy waitlist, plans offer a useful way to learn skills while you wait.
We offer general support as well as brief plans. But if your budget and time call for a brief plan, we got you!
Try brief, targeted therapy or general support early on and reduce the need for lengthy, costly treatment should problems escalate.
While teletherapy is a new concept, families appreciate the convenience and effectiveness. For some needs, like parent coaching and exposure therapy for anxiety, in-home virtual services may work even better than in-office services.
Demand for child therapists is at an all-time high and there is a shortage of clinicians available to meet this rising demand. By using this model, you are contributing to a solution to the pediatric mental healthcare crisis. The teletherapy model allows providers to deliver high-quality care equitably to areas of the country with fewer to no providers.
We’re obsessed with working with and supporting parents at TL Kids. Often, parents who are “coached” by us can dramatically amplify the effects of an individual therapy session with a child. We’ll let you know which format, whether that’s individual with child or caregiver coaching, will get you to your goal most effectively when we provide you with recommendations.
Of course, we love to work individually with children when that’s best. We teach them lifelong skills related to emotion awareness, self-regulation, assertiveness, and self-care.
We love working with adolescents sliding into young adulthood. Our Teen Unified Protocol is a plan designed for teens who want to get a better hold on their emotions—stress, anxiety, depression, anger.
This plan parallels our Anxiety and Mood plan offered for adults at Therapy Lab and both are chock-full of psychologists’ favorite therapy techniques, mostly Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with some mindfulness, exposures, and life skills training mixed in.
We are shockingly good at supporting young “naughty” children. In fact, we (not-so) secretly love them because these kids often grow up to live boldly and bravely, making waves in the world. But parents of these feisty children may need extra support during the early years, and we can help. We typically recommend Parent Coaching for behavioral issues, and our reviews reveal that parents LOVE this approach.
It’s not easy to be a parent these days. You probably know that youth in America are struggling with anxiety, depression, and hopelessness. Parents can feel overwhelmed with the options for mental health care or lack of access to decent care. As a child psychologist and mother of two boys (8 and 13), I know how unsettling this can feel. I created Therapy Lab and TL Kids to provide a new model for mental healthcare. I believe in our mission, and our team brings this mission to life every day. We support you. We support humankind. <3
