Using art, play, music, activities, and other creative methods, children and adolescents are able to convey how they feel and work through those feelings.
Is your kid struggling to find their way? Are you worried about them and aren’t sure how to help? Maybe they could benefit from a safe space to explore their feelings. That is where counseling comes in. As a former school counselor, I have a passion for working with children of all ages. Children and adolescents seem to have their own language, communicating very differently than the adults that love them. Trying to understand this language can be so frustrating! All we want to do is figure out what is causing their distress and help them to talk to us.
