Counseling for Young Adolescents and Teens

At Insight Counseling and Wellness, we understand and how to use the power of counseling to help kids as early as 8 years old. We aim to unlock their communication skills, their feelings, and inspire them to solve their problems and achieve a more consistent emotional well-being.

Emotional illnesses and behavioral issues can be damaging to future learning and family relationships. Our experienced and licensed therapists will help find the causes of your child’s emotional or behavioral problems and determine if individual or family therapy is needed.

At all times, we will work to ensure you and your child are comfortable with the process and treatment recommendations. We have multiple therapists with deep experience in treating and helping young children and teens. 

Benefits of Child or Adolescent / Teen Therapy

Issues you may be experiencing that we can help your child or teen address

Our clinicians use play therapy, PCIT Parent-Child Interaction Coaching, along with several cognitive, behavioral, and family therapy techniques to find the right balance.

Children and teens require counselors and therapists who have specialized education and a ton of hands-on experience. Trust the psychological health of your child or teen to someone who fulfills those standards.

At Insight Counseling and Wellness, we understand that counseling for a child or your teen can seem like you as a parent has failed in some way. Nothing could be further from the truth; often, parents are relieved to find that counseling can help children in as little as a few sessions depending upon the need and offer a lifetime of benefit.

Child and teen counseling is something we all occasionally need assistance with because it’s impossible to be everything to every need of our child. Some of the best choices you will make for your child is to provide them with the best chance at putting their best foot forward now and in the future.
