Child & Teen Counseling from the Heart
It isn’t uncommon for children and teens to have difficulty navigating their lives. The constant challenge of acquiring the emotional intelligence and social skills necessary to lead healthy, happy lives can get tricky for even the most well-rounded child or teenager.
At Sound Mind Therapy, we provide a safe space for children and teens to express and address thoughts, feelings and experiences that may impact their happiness and ability to thrive.
Developing Optimally, Succeeding Together
Children and teen counseling involves therapeutic conversations with a Master’s-level therapist. The therapist will work with your child or teen one-on-one in a non-judgmental, safe and unbiased environment to address the variety of stresses he or she experiences on a daily basis.
The goal of counseling varies from person to person. At Sound Mind Therapy, we work closely with children and teens to develop action plans to help them achieve the following goals.
- Modify behaviors
- Express emotions
- Communicate needs
- Increase self-confidence
- Define values
- Establish personal boundaries
- Gain other life skills
This approach helps them solve problems in a way that is rooted in a strong sense of identity, honesty, compassion, accountability, and respect, setting them up for success academically, emotionally, and socially.
