Counseling for Children and Adolescents
Life can present challenges for children just as it does for adults. Sometimes these challenges are a struggle for children to handle on their own. Parents may notice their child is angry, moody, withdrawn, or anxious. These could be signs that your child needs help to work through these challenges.
Counseling can help your child or teen learn new ways to manage their feelings, behaviors, and thoughts in a better way. In addition, our therapists view the child's problems as the family's problem and expect parents to be involved in the therapy process on a regular basis. We find that having parents as part of the therapy process helps parents feel better about knowing what they can do to help their child navigate these tough times.
Counseling might be right for your child or teenager if they are experiencing any of the following:
- Anxiety and/or depression
- Anger or irritability
- Relationship or peer problems
- Difficulty with family transitions
- Grief and loss
- Social Skills
