Youth Therapy

If your child is struggling, get them the help they need. We work to decrease the frequency and intensity of reoccurring experiences, increase coping skills and manage symptoms to help your child grow up to be a healthy, happy adult!

Working with youth and their families since 2002

Families often know when things don’t feel right but don’t know what to do. We join with families to allow them to build on their own strengths and learn to solve problems on their own.

Children who experience trauma suffer reoccurring experiences of the event, compulsively avoid reminders of the event and may reenact the event through play or conversation. Play therapy and talk therapy help these kids resolve these patterns that hinder normal development.

Teen & Youth Drug Use

Teens often use drugs out of social needs, isolation and poor emotional regulation skills. Strength based approaches encourage teens to develop a sense of independence that allows them to resist peer pressure. Teens can suffer from addiction however it is far more rare than in adult life.
Most teen drug use falls into substance abuse, not addiction. What’s the difference? Addiction or dependence is a stage of drug use in which the individual can no longer function without the drug. Abuse is characterized by irresponsible use, inability to manage consequences and problems created by their use.
Abuse is often an issue of poor emotional regulation, the influence of a negative peer group or family impact. Abuse is treated primarily by equipping a teen with tools for use, replacement strategies and means of emotional coping.

Sexual Behavior

Teens manifest a variety of problem sexual behavior ranging from promiscuity to abusive sexual behavior. Interventions developed specifically for youth are shown to be highly effective at reducing these behaviors.

Juvenile delinquency is a problem for youth and parents alike. We work closely with Human Services and Probation to help support the family and facilitate needed changes.
