Individual:  Helping individuals learn the coping skills necessary to manage difficult situations, lifestyles, or diagnoses.

Couples:  Helping couples who are experiencing difficulties with relationships.  Through improved communication many issues are able to be addressed and resolved.

Children:  Why might children need therapy?  It is common for children to experience occasional problems during normal growth and maturity.  Some of these issues may include:                      
                                Low self-esteem
                                Slipping grades
                                Fewer friends
                                Lack of respect
                                Cries easily
                                Lack of cooperation

Is the emotional distress or observed behaviors disrupting the daily function of the child? Of the family? If the answer to either of these questions is "yes", then it is highly likely that your child could benefit from therapy.        

Adolescents: A tough question for most parents of a teenager is:  When is my teen's behavior a sign of something serious instead of "normal" teen angst?

Being a teenager is a stressful part of personal development.  Most teens are trying to discover who they are and who they want to be.  Excessive distress is not healthy, however.  Behaviors that may trigger concern are:

                                Changes in sleep habits
                                Withdrawal from friends and previous enjoyable activities
                                Changes in appetite
                                Slipping grades
                                Overly emotional reactions to common events
                                Headaches/Stomachaches that prevent him/her from doing things
                                Aggressive behavior
                                Any signs of drug or alcohol use

If these or other things begin to affect your teen's daily functioning, it is likely they could benefit from counseling.
