The elementary age is a critical age for children. It is often the time we witness emotional difficulties, such as heightened anxiety and sadness in our children. Heights Family therapy strives to create a safe place to discover different emotions and allow for healthy expression of feelings.
Whether you are experiencing work-life issues, depression, anxiety, existential concerns (determining values and finding meaning and purpose), needing anger management, or having a family stress, Heights Family Counseling can help get you started in a new direction.
Heights Family counseling provides counseling services for both couples and families. We are extensively trained in premarital, marriage and family counseling.
Sex therapy is a talk-based therapy which aims to help individuals and couples better understand and achieve the type of sex life they desire. At Heights Family Counseling, we understand how important sex is to most individuals and couples.
Play therapy is the treatment of choice for young children. It uses play, the natural language of children, to provide each child with an opportunity for emotional expression

Last week, you read about how to tame a tantrum. This week, I want to provide you with further information on how to identify and help your child cope with a meltdown. Remember, tantrums often are a result of a trigger that a child can recognize. A meltdown is usually a result of overstimulation. For example, a child may have a tantrum if they do not get a toy at the store. A child may have a meltdown if they are surrounded by too many people in their class room.
Now that Halloween has been celebrated, we are quickly approaching the holiday season. For November’s position of the month, I thought it would be fun to share a Thanksgiving themed position, the Wishbone.
You’re in the grocery store, you see a child screaming, crying, and hiding behind a rack of clothes. We’ve all probably witnessed a version of this. We quietly say in our heads, “they sure know how to throw a tantrum.” I’ve worked with many parents who seek counseling for tantrums. As I began working with more and more children, I noticed a difference in the language. Some parents would describe their child’s behavior as tantrums while others expressed them as meltdowns. Curious, I did some research.
