At Ethos Wellness, we’re proud to provide therapy to children ages 11 and under, collaborating with parents to ensure the entire family is equipped to help them grow up healthy and well-rounded, able to learn and experience each stage of life to its fullest. Therapy is not only beneficial when something is “awry.” Just like academic tutoring or lessons for art, music or sports, therapy can be a helpful tool for children and families to thrive.
