Child and Adolescent Counseling
Raising a child is the most rewarding and difficult task in most people's lives. The joy we have as parents is unmatched, and yet, there are times when we are completely stumped with how to respond to a situation with our child. If you'd like to seek guidance and advice from our expert team, we are here to help. Some of the topics parents come to us with are:
- Difficulties with friendships
- Unmotivated in school and other activities
- Irregular sleep/eating habits
- Disobedience and respect
- Future planning for life after high school
You can expect to complete an intake form and then have a consultation with our child expert. You may schedule up to 3 follow-up appointments if needed, however, this is not meant to be an ongoing counseling relationship. If determined counseling is a good option for your family, you will be provided with referrals in your local area. Learn more CONTACT FORM.
Social Emotional Learning
Social emotional learning has been a buzz word in education for many years now. What parents should understand is that SEL is basically teaching your child to be a self-aware, kind, considerate, and emotionally regulated human being. There are many ways to teach SEL in the classroom and at home. If you are a teacher and would like to consult with an SEL expert on some classroom strategies and ideas, please reach out. If you are a parent curious to know more about SEL and strategies for implementing at home, we can provide you with some recommended books, curriculum, and learning tools to increase your child's exposure to SEL and learning the five tenants from CASEL (Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning): self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, responsible decision-making, and relationship skills.
