Whatever development stage you are in, life's challenges can be overwhelming--too often the competing demands of work, school, social and family-life leave us feeling sad, lonely, and afraid. Individual-
psychotherapy can help us find balance, coping strategies, and improve the quality of our lives.
Because relationships are important to our overall mental wellness, family therapy provides support for the whole family, and is a good way to include family members in the therapeutic process.
Children and Youth may experience difficulties trying to navigate through the trials of fitting in with the world around them, adjusting to changes in their own growth and development, and school or work stress. Something important to remember is that their feelings of helplessness, frustration, confusion, or anxiety are felt just as strongly as an adults.
Sometimes these emotions cause withdrawal and depression, while others experience difficulty concentrating on schoolwork, and still others begin to lash out on those around them, jeopardizing important relationships, like those within their own families. Counseling helps them talk openly about their problems and process their emotions. Respect for themselves and others grows and they learn how to obtain a sense of wellness and peace. They do better in school and foster more loving family relationships.
