Child and Teen Counseling in Scottsdale, AZ
Help them grow
If your child or teen has a behavioral issue, emotional trauma, a relationship issue, social challenge, or is suffering from depression, anxiety, or OCD, we can help!
With skill building therapy, your children will not only survive, they will learn how to thrive. Pathways Counseling Services, a Scottsdale counseling practice, works hand in hand with parents to help their young children and teenagers utilize the tools they are learning in therapy.
Parents will leave therapy with just as many new skills as their child.
When dealing with the mental and emotional health of your child or teenager, sometimes the guidance of a professional counselor can bring to light the underlying issues he or she is experiencing. Many children are unable to express the complexities of having emotional or mental problems, so counseling can be an excellent option to explore the causes of your child's issues.
Your teenager is facing significant obstacles in his or her life. Not only are hormonal imbalances heavily affecting their emotions, but social pressures and school responsibilities are impacting their behaviors and stress levels as well. Being a teenager isn't easy, but overcoming those obstacles with therapy is possible.
If your teen is having a difficult time coping with emotional issues in his or her life, we strongly encourage you to help them see a therapist who specializes in teen counseling. At Pathways Counseling Services, our therapists are trained in helping teens overcome difficulties with:
LGBTQ+ and Identity Discovery
Violence and Abuse
The experiences children have and the skills they build at a young age can directly affect the kind of people they will become as they grow into adulthood. Giving children the emotional safety, stability, and support they need early in life is a critical necessity for the development process.
Pathways Counseling Services specializes in helping children overcome a variety of emotional and developmental obstacles so they can grow into emotionally mature and responsible adults later in life.
Signs Your Child May Need Counseling
If your child displays developmental problems or acts out in ways that are beyond what’s considered normal your child could likely benefit from counseling, especially if there has been a recent trauma or significant event that impacts their lives, like a death or divorce.
Issues Addressed by Counseling
If your child has experienced tragic or unsettling events in his or her life, such as the unexpected loss of a loved one or an abusive experience, the stress of the situation may be difficult for them to understand. Some of the issues Pathways Counseling Services addresses in child counseling are listed below.
