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. I believe in working with the entire family in order to change negative interactions and unhealthy patterns. This allows for change to extend beyond the therapy room. Some areas that Heights Family Counseling works with include anxiety, depression, anger, self-esteem, AD/HD, eating disorders, school issues, family changes, autism spectrum disorders, social skills, peer interactions, self-harm, and more.
The pre-teen and teenage years can be especially difficult for both child and parents. Heights Family Counseling provides professional adolescent counseling to help your teenager navigate through this rough time. During this time, young people experience physical growth, mental development, and emotional changes. Adolescents can experience stressors that include family, school, and friend issues. Adolescents can learn how to identify causes of their distress, develop their skills in asking for help and expressing emotions, and improve their coping and problem-solving abilities.
