Is your child having outbursts?
Are they withdrawing from you, their friends, or the family?
Are you worried about their emotional well-being?
You’re not alone, and we can help.
Seeing your child struggle can be one of the most difficult experiences as a parent. You want to provide your child with all the support and tools they need to develop and succeed. Whether your child is struggling with anxiety, depression, peer relationships, frequent outbursts, difficulty at school, anger, or something else, we can help. We support children in overcoming their unique challenges so that they can experience success at home, at school, and in all other areas of their lives.
What to expect: When you come into Family Therapy Center, the first session will be with the parents alone. This enables our therapists to get a detailed overview of how your child is functioning and the struggles they are experiencing. After this first session, the therapist will then meet with your child alone. Counseling children is different than counseling teens or adults. Since children are in the developmental stage where they learn and grow through play, during therapy with children we engage in art, movement, and play therapy. By using these modalities with children, we begin to alter their behavior and emotional well-being – all while they are having fun!
