Counseling for Children

Has your child been experiencing behavioral or emotional difficulties?

At our counseling center, it’s part of our mission to help parents in distress. You should never feel guilty or ashamed for seeking professional help because there is no such thing as “the perfect parent.” We use a multidisciplinary counseling approach to include the parent, along with the other primary caregivers in the household. This allows you to have an active role in the treatment of your child.

As a parent, it’s not always easy to tell when a child’s behavior is just a phase or if there is something more serious going on.

It can be very difficult to distinguish between typical developmental behaviors and if those emotions are a reason for concern.

If not addressed properly, these problems can actually have long-term effects on your child’s development. The good news – If you’re reading this, you’re already taking a proactive step in supporting the change that your child needs. Early therapeutic interventions give us a major advantage in effectively treating and changing problematic thoughts, emotions, and behavioral cycles.

What is the Process of Counseling for My Child?

The initial 60-minute session involves parents and a licensed mental health counselor who conducts a comprehensive clinical intake to understand your child’s social, biological, and psychological history, focusing on any emotional or behavioral issues. This session helps us create an effective treatment plan by understanding your child’s behaviors, communication, and self-perception. You’ll share details on developmental milestones, medications, diet, sleep, energy levels, relationships, and more. Our goal is for you to feel confident in our therapist’s approach and be guided with treatment updates along the way. Your therapist will give recommendations for parents and caregivers to help reinforce positive change in your child outside of their therapy sessions.

The subsequent 50-minute session with your child can be scheduled according to your availability. This session marks the beginning of the psychotherapy process.
