Counseling for Young Children

All kids are different and some develop quicker than others. The preschool years are all about learning how to deal with your emotions and peers and some kids need some added support to learn the skills.

From 2-5 the brain is exploding with development so this is the best time to get them started in counseling so they can build a strong foundation that will be built upon for the rest of their school years and beyond.

We help kids with:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Trauma (car accidents, abuse, witnessing violence)
  • Grief
  • Explosive outbursts
  • Shyness
  • Aggression

Counseling for Teenagers

The teen years can be so difficult. Naturally your teen starts to drift away from the family and is more influenced by their friends. It is a time when there tend to be more arguments and power struggles, but it doesn’t have to be so hard.

We provide teenager counseling in order to help teens and their families find calm again.

Teenagers might benefit from counseling if you notice:

  • Yells at you over small things
  • Seems like they are always irritable and on edge.
  • Is starting to get poor grades.
  • Stop participating in things they used to love.
  • They are getting into arguments or fights at school.
  • Acting secretive and get defensive if you ask simple questions about what they are doing or where they have been.
  • Missing school or extracurricular activities.
  • They are ignoring house rules.

Parent Coaching

Parents has never been easy, but todays parents are facing more difficult challenges. It can feel like you are failing as a parent when your child is struggling and you aren’t sure what to do to help.

Not only are you trying to manage your kids and support them, but you are also trying to maintain a connection with your significant other and maintain your responsibilities at work. It can feel exhausting and impossible, but it can get better.

Apart from helping parents develop a plan to help their kids improve, I help parents:

  • Find ways to manage the immense stress of their demanding schedule.
  • Rebuild or strengthen their connection with their loved ones.
  • Find confidence in being a parent again.
  • Help separated parents find effective ways to improve communication and co-parent.
