Child & Adolescent Counseling
I have found that children and adolescents do the best in counseling when you are engaging them in activity at the same time as providing them with new skills and resources.
Counseling can focus on different aspects of a condition, and depending on the specifics can help alter thought habits through Cognitive Therapy, which can build lasting results and a more optimistic outlook.
Service members face different stressors than the general population. I have worked with the military population for many years both locally and abroad.
For veterans, I have been the adventure coordinator for the last seven years for a program for Veterans, and their family members called Warriors Rock.
How do I start with counseling?
You can either submit a question to the counselor online and request an appointment or fill out the intake form and the counselor will call you to discuss an appointment time.
Counseling begins with a first visit, called an “intake session”. This provides an opportunity for you and your therapist to discuss the history of your difficulty, and formulate a plan to get you back on track. Your counselor can help you decide an effective course of action, and answer any questions you may have about counseling.
This is a good opportunity for you to make sure that the counselor is a good “fit” for you.
