Child & Teen Counseling in Troy
Are you frustrated with behavior, academic performance, or other issues with your child or teen? You’re not alone. Our counselors are here to help in Troy & Rochester.
Every child and teen should have a healthy sense of self-esteem, confidence, focus and emotional security- but how exactly does one ensure this? Counseling and therapy provides you with a platform and strategy to ensure the best success for their child or teen.
Our team of counselors inspires your child to think about his or her behavior, creating respectful and responsible children who are ready for the world outside your front door. We strive to educate parents on the causes of childhood strife while working with your child to enact behaviors that help them to better communicate those issues. Topics that deserve the attention of our counselors in Troy include, but are not limited to: teen depression, anxiety in children, learning disorders, ADD/ADHD, coping with change, suicide prevention, and teen substance abuse counseling.
What should I expect from therapy?
Many of our therapists will meet initially with one or both parents to get a better understanding of their concerns and the history of their child’s problem. Following the completion of the initial assessment, your child’s therapist will offer a treatment plan, which may include individual sessions with your child, sessions with your child and either one or both parents, or other members of the family.
Our therapists routinely offer suggestions or “homework” to both the child and parents. These exercises are designed to assist children in learning new coping and problem-solving skills and to offer parents alternative strategies for responding to their children’s problematic moods and behaviors.
