Young children are often overlooked as an age group that suffer from stress. Hearing adults discuss trouble at work or in the world, older sibling issues or a special needs child in the family who takes up so much their parents time, death of a grandparent or parent, illness, school bulling, parents arguing over stress or worse, stonewalling each other and not talking at all. We have caring licensed counselors who are here to help your children feel more confident and secure about themselves.

I specialize in working with preteens and teens in order to help them cope with the large variety of challenges that face today's youth. Whether it be lack of self esteem, relocation to a new school, home and family problems or just general anxiety and depression. Eating disorders, self harm and substance abuse are prevalent among today's youth, and some early intervention can help counteract these negative influences.

We have a couple counselors who do great work with children. Because they have not only counseling degrees, but education degrees, they fully understand a child's operation of thought and effective ways to help children alleviate issues with which they struggle. We believe that parents need to be a part of treatment and will give parents tools to integrate at home to encourage healing at the core of the family.
