Raleigh, NC Child and Teen Counseling – Child Therapy, Adolescent Counseling

Does my child need counseling?

Parenting is one of the most difficult and emotionally draining jobs one can undertake. One particular challenge for parents is having to understand the emotional and intellectual needs of their child. This is not an easy task, especially when some children exhibit more difficult behaviors than others. Even the difference in the way siblings respond can be great. All of this leaves parents guessing what is serious and what is not.

Raleigh, NC counselors are trained to assess behavioral challenges and to know when they warrant a closer look. Each child is an individual and will cope with difficult situations, such as divorce, trauma, parental addictions, or mental health issues, differently. Raleigh, NC counselors take individual differences into consideration when assessing a new client.

Some behaviors that may cause concern are:

  • Significant changes to sleep, either an increase or decrease
  • Noticeable and prolonged shifts in mood
  • Frequent fighting with peers
  • Excessive shyness or anxiety in new situations
  • Bedwetting or nervous habits, such as nail biting

How can an Raleigh, NC child counselor help?

Raleigh, NC child counselors have dedicated their careers to helping children and their families who are experiencing behaviors that cause disruption or worry. They are able to build a strong rapport with your child and find the best way to communicate with him or her, even if your child is very young. They use warmth, empathy and compassion as the cornerstones of their counseling approach. Our counselors know that every child learns and processes emotions differently, but all deserve to achieve wellness in their lives.

Sometimes a child simply needs the assistance of a trained professional and a neutral environment to process what he or she is experiencing. Other times he or she may need additional counseling before resolving the maladaptive behaviors. In either case, Raleigh child counseling can be vital in helping your child overcome their difficulties and become happy, healthy children again.

hat seemed more uncomfortable than I was after I shared. The next was an awesome therapist that passed away. Before he died he introduced our group to someone new. We were all very reluctant to have to share with someone new, after taking years to disclose out abuse to anyone. Kim is amazing. She allows us to share when we feel comfortable, and seems to know when to just listen and when a reply is needed. It’s very hard to share, to open up and expose ourselves to anyone. I trust and recommend Kim. When I have a rough day or a bad memory, I don’t have to hold on to it. I take it to my safe place, the room where a victim without a voice transforms into a person that matters. It is a safe place where I don’t have to take the burdens I walk in with back out with me.

hat you should just get over it, or if you talk to a counselor you are “crazy.” I have to say that I was definitely taught wrong. I have went through so much, from being in an extremely violent and controlling relationship, as well as other trauma& I am so glad I connected with Kim, and am finally able to heal. Kim is very supportive and nonjudgemental& I highly recommend her!!
