Here’s how we can help
As a parent, trying to help your child or teen can be frustrating and feel futile and helpless. We work with young people to come up with a mutual plan of action to teach them to help themselves in a way that makes sense to them. Our therapists provide an appropriate level of confidentiality that facilitates therapy for the young person.
Socio-Emotional Concerns for School-Aged Children
Our therapists are compassionate and warm, experienced in helping students feel better in their school settings. There will be interactive role plays, demonstration of scenarios, and the use of games and toys. Children learn improved social skills through age-appropriate play therapy methods combined with the TEAM-CBT framework. Utilization of talk therapy increases with the age and maturity of the individual client.
Adolescents, and Early College-Year Challenges
From middle school to college, adolescents and young adults face challenges as they deal with decisions about identity, relationships, and their future. It’s an exhilarating time to be more independent yet unexpected that you might be feeling more isolated, lost, and frustrated at times.
At the hardest of times, feeling alone is so real but there is hope. No one has to go through hard times alone, and we can be there to listen, support, and provide relief. If you are looking for solutions or simply for clarity, we’re here to help.
Changes, Loss, and Grief
Change is a part of life, and though it can bring excitement or sadness, much of the time change can be painful. Sometime changes are referred to as life transitions and include moving away for job or school, changes in employment, breaks in relationships, and any hugely altering events that involve birth, life-threatening illness, or death. As humans we don’t tend to react well to most changes; in fact, it is a part of life that change tends to be hard.
Social Anxiety Disorder (Shyness)
Social anxiety is hallmarked by feeling awkward in social settings, having a challenging time making friends, finding it hard to secure dates, or feeling concerned about others’ judgmental views. One of the most captivating fears of human beings is fear of humiliation. Humiliation is often at the core of social inhibitions where the affected person assumes being made fun of, or disregarded, or even punished for reasons beyond their control.
