Counseling for Children

Children, like adults, can experience mental health challenges that negatively impact their well-being. 

 

Some common mental health problems children experience:

  • Anxiety

  • Adjusting to situations (divorce, moving, new sibling, etc.)

  • Behavioral Disorders

  • Bullying

  • Peer-Pressure

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • Grief 

  • Social Anxiety

If left untreated, these issues can make your child's daily functioning more difficult, including their ability to achieve developmental milestones, reach educational goals, socialize and most of all enjoy their precious years of being a KID!

At Blooming Through It, we meet your child where they are at emotionally and guide them to learn new skills to help them grow in this season of their life.
