Counseling for children is one of the most important therapies we offer at Dearbone Counseling Center – and it is one of the most complicated. Because children can be much less able than adults to clearly know and explain the things that might be bothering them, our therapists must use a variety of treatment approaches to analyze and uncover the issues at hand. As they do, they are careful to be sensitive to the child’s age, personality, and ability or inability to express thoughts, feelings, emotions, fears, and perceptions.
It also is important to point out what should be obvious in most cases: that a child’s problems also can involve the child’s family – which is why Child Counseling at Dearbone Counseling Center typically sees our therapists working with children and their families concurrently. In performing Child Therapy at Dearbone Counseling, there is one thing we know above all: a child with problems does not get better alone.
