540 Chestnut Street, Manchester, New Hampshire 03101
James Foster & Associates provides counseling for children. Some issues that are addressed are behavior problems, school issues, sibling rivalry, divorce, blended families, trauma and stress. The child's parent(s) will come for an initial intake appointment to provide background information of the problem area. The child would then be assessed by the clinician. Upon assessing the child, the Clinician will meet with the parent(s) to discuss the treatment plan and to move forward with play therapy. Parent's participation in either individual and/or collateral appointments may be necessary to process parenting experiences and difficulties with the child.

Young children who experience symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, oppositional behaviors, aggression, poor peer relationships, or academic problems are a joy to work with. I require a parent to be present when I work with children under 6 years old, as the parent must learn how to repeat what we do in the session at home. I use play therapy, expressive arts therapy, and animal assisted therapy with young children, as I've found these to be the most effective interventions. Parents can participate in family therapy with their child, and sometimes we may meet separately to discuss their child's treatment. One great thing about counseling children is that they are so capable of change.
