Therapist meets with child one-on-one to work through issues using a variety of different approaches to find what best fits each child's needs. There are many reasons a parent might bring their child in for therapy. Some of these may be anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, fear, worry, aggression, behavioral issues, underachievement, developmental delays, and social appropriateness. The parent is involved throughout the therapy process and will meet with the therapist before or after sessions or in separate scheduled parental sessions depending on the needs of each individual child.
Adolescent meets with therapist one-on-one in sessions to provide guidance and help to work through various issues they may be experiencing in this transitionally difficult and often confusing stage of life. Parents are involved in therapy but I recommend allowing the teen to have some privacy to work through the problems they are experiencing.
When seeing a child/adolescent under the age of consent (younger than 16), all custodial parents have a right to information shared in the session. Custodial parents should be aware that exercising this right may be detrimental to the therapeutic process, and so may wish to allow confidentiality between the child/adolescent and therapist. Parenting sessions are also available and are recommended in certain circumstances; such as out of control behaviors (drug and alcohol use, cutting school, running away, threats of suicide, violence, bullying, failing classes, and other risky behaviors).
Adult meets with therapist in one-on-one therapy sessions to get support and guidance while working through personal issues. Some of these issues may be anxiety, depression, obsession/impulse control, anger management, divorce, grief, relationship issues, family conflict, addiction, and codependency.
Parenting sessions are provided to help parents with children/teens of all ages by providing consultation, support, and guidance on the many different issues they may encounter while raising children.
Premarital counseling is offered for couples who are contemplating marriage or other forms of long term commitment. This is designed to provide couples with tools to help them throughout their relationship. Some of these tools are conflict management, boundary setting, effective communication skills, and emotional trust.
Couples counseling is also provided for any type of couple who might need support and guidance through current issues; such as communication, boundary setting, parenting beliefs, intimacy, household roles, and emotional distress.
Family sessions offered for a number of different issues. This is designed for a family in any type of transitional period; such as moving, divorce, loss, birth, marriage, and other times of transition families may experience. Family sessions are also provided to help provide guidance to resolving family conflict, boundary issues, behavioral problems, and addiction.
Divorce counseling is designed for parents prior and after divorce to assist in developing the best co-parenting practices for the situation as well as how to present and handle the presenting of divorce to children, family, and friends.
COMING SOON! I will be providing different therapy groups for various issues and topics in the near future. These groups will vary in size from small (3 to 4 people) to large (10+) and will be weekly for a set number of weeks/sessions. Some topics may include parenting out of control adolescents, social anxiety for adolescents, bullying, body image, preparing for parenting, preparing for marriage, and others.
