Most children and teens will not ask for help directly. You might notice that they’re struggling emotionally through changes in their behaviors:
- Loss of interest in activities
- Sleeping more than usual
- Not sleeping very much at all or having trouble falling asleep
- Nightmares and fears
- Spending much of their free time in bed
- Isolating from friends and family
- Academic decline or difficulties
- Drug or alcohol use
Some might express hopelessness or dissatisfaction with life verbally.
- “What’s the point?!”
- “Life sucks.”
- “I wish I was never born.”
- “Everyone would be better off I wasn’t around.”
These are cries for help. We are here to support you and your child or teen in overcoming and these challenges and ensuring a more positive future.
We provide a safe space for children and teens to explore and understand their emotions and thoughts. We work together to practice and develop skills to manage these emotions and thoughts in a way that’s beneficial to the child/teen. Unfortunately none of us are born knowing these skills. We have to learn them at some point in time. Otherwise, we suffer the consequences of emotional turmoil and chaotic life choices.
Our goal is to create a positive and supportive environment where young individuals can express themselves freely. We also work collaboratively with families to identify and address areas of difficulty, fostering a deeper understanding of challenges and their impact on daily life.
