Counseling for Child Behavior, Stress Management Therapy & More
Individual Therapy for Young Adults, Teens & Children
Children and teenagers, like adults, go through difficult times that can be challenging to manage. That might include difficulties at school or work, dealing with a chronic illness, struggling with religious or spiritual issues, or coping with life's transitions. Whatever the issue may be, our counselors are here to help young adults and work through their struggles and build the mental health they need to thrive in life.
Symptoms may vary widely based on the child's age, the issue at hand, and individual factors, but some common signs that a child or young adult may benefit from counseling include:
- Changes in mood or behavior
- Difficulty concentrating
- Frequent temper tantrums or intense anger
- Persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness
- Withdrawal from friends or activities they once enjoyed
- Overwhelming fear for no apparent reason
- Drastic changes in eating or sleeping habits
- Development of harmful behaviors (e.g., self-harm, substance abuse)
In individual therapy sessions, our therapists work one-on-one with your child, using age-appropriate methods to help them understand and cope with their feelings and behaviors. Our services aim to help young people navigate the complexities of life, relationships, and growing up. We provide a safe, non-judgmental space for them to express their feelings, explore their thoughts, and learn new skills to manage their emotions and behaviors.
