WORRIED ABOUT YOUR CHILD?
Do you worry that your child might be depressed or anxious?
Are you concerned about your child’s academic performance?
Is it a constant nag to get them to complete tasks such as homework?
Do you notice that your child is isolating?
Do you think your child has an anger problem?
Is your child’s behavior concerning you?
Has your child gone through a major change and may not be adjusting well?
As a parent, you want the best for your child, but lately, you are worried about your child. Worried more than usual. They are misbehaving at school and may be at home as well. Teachers are contacting you regularly because they have been “disruptive in class.”
As a family, you may have experienced a significant change, such as divorce, moving, change of schools, the loss of a loved one, or other changes that your child is not adapting to it as you hoped.
Your child is simply not acting the same. They are crying more than usual, about things that did not use to upset them, and may be voicing things like: “I don’t have any friends,” or, “No one likes me.” They are scared to talk to other kids and rather keep to themselves.
Family activities are also becoming less and less enjoyable due to constant arguing and/or misbehavior experienced in public. In fact, it has been a while since you have enjoyed a family activity. You are worried about the effect it’s having on the family, but nothing seems to work to turn things around.
Talking about homework and grades are becoming exhausting. Your child may be trying their best with no results. You also don’t know what to do to make things easier. You know your child has endless amounts of potential, so it is frustrating to not know what to do.
Whether you are concerned about academics, behavior or emotional issues your child is experiencing, we can help.

CHILDREN NEED HELP JUST LIKE ADULTS DO
CHILD COUNSELING CAN HELP.
Just like adults, children may be struggling with their emotions which could lead to depression and anxiety. Child counseling can help your child learn more about what they are experiencing and help them find tools to cope. It is also a great way for parents to learn more about their child’s internal struggle and how to provide the best support.
For some parents, the child’s behavior is concerning. They may be struggling to follow rules at home, and/or at school, not completing chores and homework, and can be lashing out with anger.
What a lot of parents don’t realize is that, 7.4% of children aged 3-17 years (approximately 4.5 million) have a diagnosed behavior problem, and close to 10% suffer from depression or anxiety (approximately 6.4 million).
This can be a scary situation for parents, and can create worry, fear, and frustration. After reading countless articles, implementing different approaches, nothing has worked. The good news, however, is that with the help of a compassionate, experienced child therapist you may be able to find the help your child needs to overcome their emotional or behavioral issues.
Child counseling provides an opportunity to help your child learn how to manage their emotions and behavior better. It can also help you get back to the family that have lost or maybe create a family structure that you have always wanted.
Our children are our most important part of our lives and we strive for the best for them. Counseling for children can improve the family dynamic as a whole. Our approach is one of focusing on your child’s strengths as well as collaborating with the parents so that the changes can be maintained at home without the need of long-term therapeutic services.

We are good parents. Do we really need counseling to help our child?

Just like one may seek help from a cardiologist for issues related to the heart, reaching out to a counselor is a similar type of resource for parenting concerns. During the process of receiving counseling for your child, we will work with you to help find possible ways to enhance your relationship, behavior, and academics of your child without judgement or labels.
INTERESTED IN CHILD COUNSELING BUT STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?
