Adolescent and Children Counseling
Developmentally, kids struggle to express and name their emotions, resulting in turmoil, depression, and struggle. Teens and children greatly benefit from having someone to talk to and help guide them through a variety of issues.
When children are faced with challenges outside of their control, they react to the environment they are faced with. Struggles with bullying, family discord, trauma, social stress, depression, and anxiety, may manifest as anger, aggression, and mood changes.
A counselor can help a child develop coping skills and self-awareness to help guide them through difficult times.
Marked distress and problematic behaviors are often manifested in the following ways:
-Changes in mood and behaviors
-Drop in academic performance or poor school attendance
-Difficulties sleeping or sleeping too much
-Lack of interest in usual activities
