Specialized Treatment for Children and Teens

Seeing your son or daughter struggle in school, with relationships and in life can be heartbreaking and leave parents feeling helpless and frustrated. Through evidence-backed psychotherapy techniques, your child or teenager can receive the very best mental health treatment available to garner the best possible results.

Family Counseling Associates offers both individual and group therapy for children and teens that helps them to function optimally in their everyday environments. Through a combination of social skills training, anxiety, depression, hyperactivity and anger therapy, emotional regulation training and therapy focused on overcoming life changes such as the divorce of parents, our staff offers a unique expertise when it comes to helping young people overcome issues and challenges.

Further, our treatment plans include resources and strategies for parents, in order to foster positive family relationships and behavioral management strategies.

Treatment Tailored to Children

Kids need special treatment when it comes to mental health. That’s why Family Counseling Associates offers social skills groups for kids ages 7-10. These groups address a wide variety of behavioral and mental issues unique to this age group.

Treatment in our social skills groups can offer relief to kids who feel uncomfortable or awkward in social settings, or those who feel misunderstood or act impulsively. Our social skills groups for children focus on helping your child gain comfort in conversation with others, build friendships, establish a sense of empathy and cooperation as well as regulate his or her own emotions and apply conflict management techniques.

Each of our social skills group sessions lasts 10 weeks and takes place on Tuesdays from 4 to 5 p.m.

Treatment Specific to Teens and Young Adults

Teenagers often require treatment options and techniques that are different from both children and adults. Family Counseling Associates provides customized therapy for teenagers that includes Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and life skills groups in a welcoming and safe environment. With a focus on mindfulness, regulating emotions and distress tolerance, these groups are designed for teens 12-18 years old as well as young adults 19-24 years old.

DBT and life skills therapy are six-week programs and aim to improve clients’ communication with others as well as help them to implement coping strategies through the use of expressive/art therapy.
