"Does this sound familiar? Your child has difficulty with organization and sustaining attention. Completing homework is a nightly battle. The teacher calls, saying that your child isn't working up to his/her potential. Perhaps your child doesn't listen to you as much as you'd like, which tests your sanity on a daily basis. All of this not only impacts your child's self-esteem, but yours as well. At Rise Through Learning, our school psychologists are here to help. Imagine asking your child if they've finished their homework and they reply, "Of course. I did it when I got home." Imagine a peaceful bedtime routine, free of tantrums. Imagine an independent child, capable of accomplishing tasks without your near constant assistance. All of this is possible, and you are already on the right track. "

"It can take great courage to get uncomfortable and come to therapy. As a yoga instructor and counselor, I am often asking my students to acknowledge any uncomfortable feelings that come up in a posture, so that they might gain a better understanding of them and begin to push past it. I ask them to stay mindful of any negative thoughts going on their head and if they can instead focus on their breath, remind themselves this posture is not permanent, and to maybe even smile. In session we will focus on thoughts, emotions, actions, and limiting beliefs to continue to develop a sense of confidence in ourselves."

School Issues (Academic Underachievement, Academic Counseling) Therapists
Students underachieve in school for a variety of reasons. Motivational problems, ADHD, and learning disabilities can all be a challenge to any parent. Child therapists, child psychologists, or school psychologists in Chicago can help to assess a child's needs and offer much needed help.

Academic counselors in Chicago help with learning issues, child education issues or ADD (attention deficit). They can work with academic underachievers who are quite bright, gifted and intelligent, as well as with children with developmental disabilities (i.e. disabilities students). Additionally, Chicago Therapists work with nonverbal learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and reading difficulties.

Children with problems at school, or who are failing at school in Chicago all have specific and unique instructional needs. A good Chicago academic counselor or school counselor will provide the individualized attention and support a student needs to succeed.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Chicago are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Chicago you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Chicago and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Chicago or family therapy in Chicago.
