Professional psychotherapy and counseling are available for children and their families. We work with children on concerns that range from temporary upsets to problems of a deeper and more complex nature. We help our clients work on and resolve specific emotional and social problems in ways that help them relate better interpersonally and achieve more satisfying lives.
We care about the future of our teens. Call us and see how we can help.

Define your goals.Think about what you would like to get out of counseling. It might be helpful to write a list of events, relationship issues, or feelings that you think are contributing to your distress
Be an active participant.This is your counseling experience, so be as active as you can in deciding how to use the time. Be honest with the counselor and give her or him feedback about how you see the sessions progressing.
Be patient with yourself.Growth takes time, effort, and patience. All of your coping skills, behavior patterns, and self-perceptions have been learned and reinforced over a long period of time, so change can be difficult and slow at times.
Follow your counselor's recommendations.Take the time between sessions to complete any activities suggested by your counselor. Counseling is intended to improve your life in the "real world," so making efforts to try out and practice new behaviors, approaches, or ways of thinking could be a crucial element to the success of your counseling experience..
