Youth Counseling

 

Should we seek counseling for our child?

 

Talking with your child regularly and developing an open, loving communication is one of the best steps a parent can take to help their child emotionally process life's common and

not so common childhood experiences.

Occasionally emotions and experiences aren't easy to understand or integrate

into our lives.  As a parent, we can feel at a loss when our child stops talking

and seems distant or depressed.    

Your child might be experiencing an awkwardness socially that leaves them

on the sidelines with few friends and self-doubts.  They may be struggling

with school work, lack of motivation or hidden addictions.  

You may be concerned about their well-being during or after a divorce.  These are common reasons families seek the help of a therapist or nurse practitioner to work with their child.

 

 

 



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It might be reassuring to note that children usually respond well to therapy and enjoy appointments with their mental health providers.  In most cases, child and teen therapy is not long term.  Children appreciate the perspective of someone who has helped kids, just like them, make sense of what's happening in their life.

Our providers are friendly, knowledgeable and caring.  They utilize many therapy styles depending on the personality and needs of the child.  In many cases, therapy will include some group sessions with the parents or the whole family.    

When our children are sick, we take them to the doctor.  When they are struggling emotionally, consider calling a therapist or nurse practitioner.  

We help families everyday who are dealing with the same issues you are concerned with and there is hope.

Give our office a call for more information on child and teen therapy and what to expect.

Your child will first need to sign a release of information (ROI) form available at the front desk.

Can I talk to my (12+ years-old) child's provider about how they're doing in sessions?
