Child Counseling

What is Counseling for Children?

Counseling for children typically involves play therapy but it can also involve talk therapy or coaching just like adults. Depending on your child’s situation, the time with your RCC specialist may involve behavior management strategies, family care, help with a difficult grief experience, anxiety, depression, self-harm, ADHD, and more!

Our staff is trained in working with children from ages 3-up, and parents of all ages!
