Looking for therapist with sport's psychology experience for teen
My early teen-age son has always had a lot of difficulty with emotional regulation, particularly around sports. He becomes very disregulated, frustrated, and angry at himself and others on his team if things don't go the way he wants. His team mates are definitely beginning to notice. This is also noticed in other areas, such as frustration with teachers who he considers unfair, etc., self-critical if he doesn't do something well right away, and difficulty with perspective taking to some extent. I've been thinking about the best way to get him some help. Since he is incredibly competitive, sporty and interested in sports, I thought that a therapist who has experience with sport's therapy and/or is very into sports can at least initially approach emotional regulation/composure/frustration tolerance issues from this perspective as a way for him to connect and have buy in. I am interested in a family/parent component as well so that we can create consistency for him, and help him with generalizing what he learns to other areas in his life. Any recommendations appreciated-but looking for a seasoned child-teen therapist and think individual rather than group would be most helpful at this point. Thank you.
