Announcement icon Sessions will be completely virtual until the office reopens at the guidance of the State of IL. Kids are loving these virtual sessions!
Do you or your child seem stressed? Not quite sure how you landed where you are? Are you feeling exasperated? Overwhelmed? Everyone can benefit from support! Consider LifePoint as we offer personalized therapy for individuals, youth and their families specializing in those who experienced a negative event(s) and are struggling to manage their emotions and behaviors. This could look like: *tantrums *trouble focusing *acting out in social situations *excessive fear *hard time sleeping *withdrawal *appearing sad or anxious *hard time connecting with others *reenacting bad experience *hard time calming down *lacking self confidence *frequent head aches or stomach aches *emotionally, sexually or physically abused *being bullied *being a child of a divorce.
When you have tried all the tricks in your own bag and they’re not working how you want, we are here to help! We help youth deal with big feelings and individuals sift through their feelings. Sometimes chronic stress has turned on a part of the brain that makes us seem like we’re overreacting. It’s not an overreaction so much as a primitive fear, protective response. We can help you or your loved one return to safety and regulation!
At LifePoint, parents are very involved in the therapy of a minor! Even if your an adult child of divorce or any trauma, we can get you feeling better. We use modalities like TF-CBT, CBT, play therapy, Theraplay, SPARCS and ARC which include parents (for individual and family sessions). See lifepointtherapy.com for more information on each type of therapy. We are Military Friendly! TriCare accepted as out of network provider.
