Child & Adolescent

The great theorist Carl Jung believes: “The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct.”

Before children can talk, they play. Play is a child’s first language. The use of play is how children explore and learn from their environment. Children utilize play to experiment cause and effect, model relationships they observe, and problem solve area’s they may be unhappy with. Play allows children to practice what they are learning (Mr. Rogers).

At Inner Courage Counseling, we utilize play, art and other forms of alternative expression to assist children and teens in developing new ways of communication. In allowing the client to connect to new ideas, they can feel more invested in personally following through with those changes. Feeling more in control of our environment can allow for prolonged modification.

Parents want what is best for their children. Sometimes the best way to help your children through their struggles is to provide them with the resources they may need to move through any difficulties they are experiencing. Similar to a tutor for math or a doctor for physical illness, our counselors are motivated to work with the parents and client to define the problem(s) and teach the skills needed to improve day to day life.

If your child/teen struggle with any of the following, we may be of assistance:

-Attention issues
-Behavioral concerns
-Emotional Regulation
-Excessive worry
-Family changes
-Parent-child relationship
-Respect for authority figures
-School related issues
-Sibling relationships
-Social skills

Child and adult psychotherapy As Maya Angelou once said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” We all have a story, and in today’s society, it can sometimes feel that no one understands or truly hears what we are trying to say. I believe therapy can offer a nonjudgmental and empathic environment for these stories to unfold.
