CHILD AND ADOLESCENT
Child and Adolescent
Many treatments are available for child and adolescent mental health symptoms.
Some are backed by science (i.e., “evidence-based treatments”), and some are not.
We provide children and adolescents, ages 5 through 18, with support and coping skills to achieve emotional health and improved functioning through individual and family counseling. Play therapy allows younger children, who often are unable to communicate verbally, to express their feelings through art, activities, and toys.
We counsel children with challenges such as attention disorders, learning differences, and behavioral issues. Parents are incorporated into the treatment plan so that they can provide intervention and additional support at home.
Our expert counselors are available to speak on a variety of topics, including body image, bullying, and building healthy relationships at area synagogues and schools.
I was quite literally standing on an edge, ready to jump off. And now I haven’t had a thought like that in weeks. I’m feeling a lot more like myself from my golden days. I’m, like, ready to start working on things again. It’s been really, really exciting. Having the energy to do that, just do things again.
When you’re you’re stuck in these places of depression and PTSD and anxiety, it’s like, you’re not really living a life, you’re just trying to manage a life. And, you know, I feel like, for the first time in a really long time, I’m living a life.
My parents didn’t realize what I had was depression, pretty serious depression too, for quite a long time. I came to serenity because I went to numerous doctors and tried numerous different medications for treating depression and anxiety with no luck… Like a month or two later (after starting TMS), I just felt fantastic.
