COUNSELING AND THERAPY FOR CHILDREN
Counseling and therapy may be helpful for children of all ages, and children in any number of circumstances. We provide specialized counseling and therapy services that cater to your child or teen’s unique needs. We aim to create a comfortable, trusting environment and an open outlet for your child to communicate. We hope to provide lifelong tools your child can utilize as they thrive and grow. Our counseling and therapy services may be beneficial for those with social difficulties, behavior difficulties, anger issues, anxiety, irritability, depression, perfectioning, and low self-esteem. Therapy and counseling may also be helpful for those dealing with divorce, separation, trauma, or addiction. Learn more about our child counseling and therapy services.
Educational therapy is ideal for children who struggle with schooling. Unlike tutoring, educational therapy aims to address underlying issues, to better understand a child’s unique needs. Educational therapy may also be helpful to identify learning tools or to uncover the best environment for a successful educational experience. This form of therapy may be helpful for those with learning disorders (including dyslexia and dyscalculia), AD/HD, autism, anxiety, executive functioning issues, visual or auditory processing deficits, expressive language issues, test-taking or study-strategy issues, and low self-esteem. Learn more about educational therapy with Whole Child Neuro.
Every family is unique, and family bonds can have a deep, lifelong impact on each family member. Here at Whole Child Neuro, we provide family therapy aimed at helping families to stay close or become closer as they address their specific needs. We use a collaborative problem solving approach to identify and address any specific issues that may exist in family relationships. We aim to help build trust and strengthen communication, while overcoming obstacles that can exist in a family dynamic. Family therapy may be helpful for families going through divorce, separation, a death in the family, or other traumatic experiences. It may also be helpful for families with children who exhibit behavioral issues. Learn more about our family therapy services.
Play therapy is a specific form of child therapy which may help a child to communicate their inner world, revealing their feelings and how they experience the world. This form of therapy can help those who struggle to express themselves to have a comfortable, encouraging platform to communicate openly. Play therapy also provides a child with time to be creative and imaginative, while improving communication and behavioral skills. Play therapy may be beneficial for children with learning disabilities, emotional difficulties, behavioral problems, AD/HD, autism, depression, anxiety, and those overcoming abuse, grief, loss, or trauma. Learn more about our play therapy services.
The teen age can be especially challenging. Teenagers face social, mental, and physical challenges, on top of other stressors, such as difficulties in family life and preparation for college. We aim to understand each teen’s unique obstacles and needs; we strive to provide them with the tools to overcome life’s obstacles; we offer guidance to create a road map for the future; and we provide an outlet to openly communicate emotions. Teen counseling may be beneficial for teens with social difficulties, learning disabilities, mental disabilities, emotional difficulties, behavioral difficulties, anger issues, anxiety, depression, irritability, perfectionism, low self-esteem, AD/HD, or autism. Counseling may also be useful for teens who have experienced trauma, those navigating through parental divorse, separation, or other transitions, those suffering from addiction, those with gifted or twice-exceptional traits, and those preparing for college. Learn more about our teen counseling services.
Parenting is difficult, and obstacles are bound to crop up as you raise a child or children. We aim to help parents to uncover, cope with, and overcome child-related problems, and we strive to cater to your specific needs and relationship dynamics. Whether you want to support your child as much as possible through a divorce, or you’d like help as you raise a child with behavioral issues, our counseling services will be directed to your specific needs. Parent counseling may be beneficial for those with co-parenting problems, those going through divorce or separation, those dealing with substance abuse, those who need anger management or grief counseling, and those with children who have behavioral issues. Learn more about our parent counseling services.
Addiction to drugs or alcohol can damage relationships and destroy livelihoods. Addiction counseling aims to assess the causes of an addiction, and the triggers that can lead to alcohol or drug abuse. In addition, counseling may be useful to unveil tools and programs to help overcome or manage addiction and substance abuse. We provide addiction counseling for parents, young adults, and children. We may also suggest that addiction counseling be paired with family therapy, if it is beneficial for the family and individual. Learn more about our addiction counseling services.
