Children/Adolescent Counseling

Children and Teens have pressures and stress that sometimes need extra help.

Therapy helps children and adolescents in a variety of ways. They receive emotional support, resolve conflicts with people, understand feelings and problems, and try out new solutions to old problems. Goals for therapy may be specific (change in behavior, improved relations with friends or family), or more general (less anxiety, better self-esteem). The length of therapy depends on the complexity and severity of problems.

Therapy can help kids communicate their feelings and needs, control behavior and understand better how to get their needs met. Therapy can help kids with school, friends, and improve their self-esteem. There are several issues that are addressed in therapy:

  • ADHD
  • Bullying/cyber bullying
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Divorce
  • Blended families
  • Peer pressure

  • Trauma
  • Abuse
