Child Counseling

Does My Child Need Counseling?

  • Has your child lost their spark?
  • Are they failing in school?
  • Is the teacher complaining about bad behavior?
  • Is your child having trouble with their friends?
  • Have you tried talking with your child until you are blue in the face but you can't get through?
  • Are you always trying to explain to your mother (or worse, your mother-in-law) that you child is just more sensitive than other children?
  • Do you wonder if you're just a bad parent?

We Can Help

Sometimes it is difficult to know when your child is going through a difficult phase (eg, changing schools or a best friend moved away) that you can give support and time to work out and when you need to seek professional help.

Following are times when you should seek therapy:

  • When it has gone on for some time with no improvement
  • When your child's behavior is causing trouble at school or disrupting the home
  • When your child is hurting himself or others (such as cutting)
  • If you are concerned your child has an eating disorder
  • If there is a history of mental illness in the family.

How Does Child Therapy Work?

When you schedule your child for counseling, your therapist most likely will meet with the parents first, gather history, and discuss treatment goals. Then we will meet with your child and complete an assessment and begin to develop a relationship where your child feels comfortable and safe to express themself. Depending on the child's age and level of development, your therapist will develop a treatment plan that will include talk therapy, play therapy, art therapy, or other modalities as needed. We will meet with you periodically to discuss progress and give you tools to help you help your child.

Our goal is to help bring back that spark in your child's eyes and peace back into your home.
