Reduced rates for those with financial need. I work with children, youth and adults to build healthy coping skills and relationships within themselves and with others. Healthier relationships between parents and their children are key to improving self confidence and overall mental health. Often children/youth want to have closer relationships with their parents/caregivers (even if they may show you the opposite) but both have difficulty communicating their needs. As a result, there becomes a disconnect between parent and child.
