Child & Adolescent Counseling
JFCS provides children and adolescents with therapeutic support. Our therapists use cognitive behavioral interventions, family therapy, and coping skills to help our clients.
We counsel our clients with challenges such as depression, anxiety, attention-deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), anger management, and a variety of learning disorders. We also counsel children on coping with divorced or separating parents, peer relationships, school refusal, self-esteem, sexual / gender identification, and behavioral issues.
For younger children, (above age 6), who often are unable to communicate verbally, we offer play therapy. This allows children to express their feelings through art, activities, and toys. Parent education sessions are also offered.
JFCS also helps young adults to navigate their expanding new world, by giving them the guidance that they can use now and as they become adults. Parents are educated and are incorporated into the treatment plan so that they can provide intervention and additional support at home.
