Counseling Services for Children
Pinnacle Counseling offers counseling services for children, ages 5-17 and their parents. An experienced therapist with advanced training in working with young people will meet with the child in our therapeutic playroom designed specifically to provide a safe environment for children to express themselves. Playing is one way that children are able to express themselves. Children do not have the level of vocabulary or insight like adults that allows that allows them to process emotions verbally. Through carefully selected toys, games, books, activities, art mediums, and purposeful play, children can make sense of their lives, heal, and learn new skills. Counseling and play therapy for children can address different types of issues, including reaction to stressors such as divorce or loss, traumas of all kinds, problems with family bonding and relationships, anxiety and depression, disruptive behavior, aggression, school problems, and ADHD.
