Children/ Teen Counseling
Having your child see a counselor can be a scary thought. Children and adolescences who experience loss, anxiety, or trauma need a safe place where they can process their thoughts and emotions without fear of judgement or criticism.
Our child therapist is committed to help them develop social skills and emotional intelligence, giving you better insight into their mental health and stability. Child/ teen counseling is a partnership between the parent, the therapist, and the child, working together to help navigate the emotions and behaviors that develop through the different stages of their life.
To book an appointment simply reach out to us below through our online form or call our office. The initial session is called an intake or assessment. Your counselor will provide a confidential, safe, judgment-free environment for you and your child or teen. During this initial session the individual will complete their forms and meet with the counselor for 90 minutes. A personal history, review of any medications, past therapy, family history, and any medical and /or psychological concerns will be discussed, and then collaboratively working together we will formulate a treatment plan for future appointments.
Before leaving, the client will make several appointments of 50 minutes to then implement the desired goal for your child/ teenager along with the counselor’s guidance.
Push In is a social skills activity group for girls in 3rd - 12th grade. Facilitated by Jordan Blakeney, a graduate level counseling intern at Collaborative Counseling Group, with the purpose of equipping girls and young women to understand their identity, boost self-confidence, and provide encouragement. The age-appropriate groups will be comprised of 5 girls at time in group setting for 5 sessions and we will meet for an hour once a week. This is a closed group, once the first meeting begins all 5 girls would attend all sessions together and any additional participates would wait to begin the next round of meetings.
