Child Counseling

As a parent, all you want is for your child to have a happy, and healthy life.

To find success in whatever it is that lights them up and to pursue it head on.

From day one you promised yourself your child would have a good life. A healthy childhood with friends, a well-connected family, and happy memories. That’s not to say you thought raising your kid today would be an easy thing. You knew it would be difficult to keep them on a safe path that led to making good choices. But you made sure to be a present and active figure in their childhood. You were sure this would be enough to ensure their road to success.

Now, when you look at your child you’re heartbroken by their struggle. Their life is more challenging than you’d imagined and all you want for them is to find some peace and ease.  On their worst days, you wonder if they’ll even fall in with the right group of friends, hit their stride in school, or find a passion or talent that gives them purpose.

Don’t be discouraged. At Urban Wellness, we’re here to let you know, you’re not alone. Bringing kids up in this world is no easy feat. But just because your child is struggling right now, doesn’t mean you can’t help them find their way.

At Urban Wellness there’s one thing we know for sure

Children deserve access to quality care. Your child will encounter various obstacles throughout their life. Oftentimes, they might not have the skills necessary to navigate these obstacles effectively. Counseling offers the opportunity for your child to learn and practice new skills to help manage these obstacles, as well as help your child communicate their thoughts, feelings, and emotions in a helpful way.

Counseling offers a safe space to explore things in life that your child may be struggling with. It is a healthy and self-caring way to for your child to work on themselves and learn better ways to handle their thoughts, feelings, relationships, and home life. Together, we can look at barriers that are keeping your child from reaching the results you hope for. We can also help them manage the symptoms that are creating distress in their life, whether it be grief, trauma, or impulse control issues.

Sometimes, no matter how hard you try to guide them, your child is going to go their own way. They might behave in ways that go against everything you’ve taught them or get close to the wrong group of friends. When this happens, you can feel like you’re at the end of your rope and that you’ve totally failed as a parent.

But this isn’t true. The fact that you’re searching for a therapist shows that you care about your child’s well-being and want the best for them. Despite parents best intentions, kids will still hit points of struggle in their lives. They simply need a little guidance to help them learn the skills necessary to improve their quality of life.

Urban Wellness is the place for parents who are looking to help their kids better manage life’s situations, so they will have more balanced behaviors, thoughts, and emotions.

Perhaps your child or teen has anxiety that is starting to impact the way they function in the world. You can tell that school, social situations, and home life are difficult for your child and can tell that their anxiety is holding them back. They spend a lot of time worrying about what others think of them and they always want everything to be perfect. You know you need to help them rein in their anxious feelings, so they can begin to enjoy their life, but you have no idea how to get started. We have counselors on staff who specialize in helping children with anxiety. Click here to learn more. 

Or maybe you’ve recently noticed an increase in angry outbursts in your child or teen. You’re looking for the best ways to help them understand where their anger comes from and how to regulate it appropriately. They often can’t seem to control themselves when they are frustrated, and their behaviors are out of line and worrisome. When you seek therapy for your child at Urban Wellness, you will be connected with a counselor who is an expert on helping kids regulate their emotions. You, your child, and your child’s therapist will work together to develop skills to communicate through anger and to connect with the thoughts and feelings that are leading them to be angry in the first place. Click here to learn more. 

In the end, you can feel so much better about yourself and the path your life is taking when you confide in a professional who knows how to help.

You’re ready to find the pieces of yourself that have been lost to the demands of your busy life.
