Although it is sometimes assumed that childhood and adolescence are times of carefree bliss, as many as 20% of children and adolescents have one or more diagnosable mental disorders.
Kids and teens may need therapy when they have problems they can't cope with alone. Or they need help when problems affect how well they do, feel, or act. If things don't get better on their own, kids may need therapy so things can improve. Sometimes, entire families need support while trying to communicate, learn, and create boundaries.
In therapy, kids learn by doing. With younger kids, this means working with play, drawing, talking and at possibly the family. For older kids and teens, therapists share activities and ideas that focus on learning the skills they need. They talk through feelings and solve problems.
Play therapy available for school age children.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Couples therapy is a supportive place for both members to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen their relationship.
Psychological testing and evaluations are available for adults, adolescents, and children for many purposes. Testing can clarify a diagnosis, provide better understanding of a complicated situation, provide treatment recommendations, or assess whether a current treatment strategy is working.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
