Counseling for Children, Tweens and Teens

At Whole HeARTs Family Center, we are dedicated to helping your child and family regain harmony and happiness and work through any challenges you may be currently experiencing. With our strengths based family approach, we not only specialize in working with children, we are dedicated to empowering you as a parent with new techniques so that YOU have the tools to help your child. By providing both therapy for children and our evidence based parenting support, we are able to help families in a fraction of the time that it might take if we only worked with children. Because of this, most of the children we see are able to do short-termed therapy.

At the Whole HeARTs Family Center, we understand that finding the right therapist for your child is a very important process that we take very seriously. We want to make sure that your child has the right therapist for his or her needs – whether it is us, or someone else. At Whole HeARTs, we are careful to only bring on clients we feel confident we can help.

To determine if we are a good fit, we offer a free phone consultation so that we can make sure that we specialize in the services and types of therapy that you are interested in for your child. If we feel that this is a good match, we can then setup the initial appointment. We offer this first appointment at half off of our normal rate to make sure that you feel good about us, that your child makes a good connection with us and is ready for therapy, and so that we can better determine if we are the right therapist for your child’s needs.

After meeting with you and or your child, together we will develop a treatment plan to help achieve the best possible outcome. Each person is special and unique, and therapy sessions are individualized to help your child reach his or her highest potential.

Individual child counseling sessions are a fantastic way to give each child the attention that he or she deserves in order to support lasting changes. Children have the chance to explore and learn in a safe environment where they can take pride in the new skills they have learned and see how much they have grown. Additionally, counselors have the opportunity to get to know your child and your family in order to help support not only your child but you as well.

The parent child relationship is very special and deserves tender loving care. We love to honor and support the parent child relationship. Sometimes it may need a little more tender loving care in order for it to continue to flourish and grow. These sessions help develop those skills from a strengths based approach in both the parent(s) and child(ren) in order for all to continue to develop together.

There is nothing like a sibling relationship with its own unique dynamics, challenges, and joys. Children have the opportunity to grow in their self confidence to be able to navigate the sibling relationship. Each child has the chance to learn their own set of skills and practice them in a safe environment with their own sibling. Parents will also learn about the skills each sibling has learned and how best to support each child.

Like groups, buddy sessions are a fantastic experience to help children learn and practice in a real social situation. In addition to creating a real life learning situation, buddy session allow for more individualized attention than groups and allow the therapist to obtain a first hand look how children interact with others. Each child is matched by the therapist based on what each child is working on in order to ensure a good fit and to create a supportive, therapeutic environment for each child.
