Counseling Adolescents & Children

Family counseling may include the children of a family in the therapy session. Single parent families, blended families, new parents, working parents with children – all types of family units have stress and sometimes run out of ideas about how to deal with discipline and positive behavior management between parents and children. Sometimes other kinds of concerns about the children in a family need to be addressed: Children who have been sexually abused, or who have been through a traumatic accident or illness; children who have behavior issues that are more intense than what seems to be normal; children who may have mental or physical challenges that set them apart from their peer groups. When the whole family unit is together in a session, the therapist will be able to pinpoint how best to bring healing to the family.
