Children process their emotions differently than adults, and they are not always able to explain how they are feeling. Our counselors who specialize in helping your child are trained to give them a voice in several ways. These include helping them to name their emotions and by showing them how to deal with strong emotions such as anger or anxiety. They also help parents understand the non-verbal signals of their child’s feelings.
Grace Counseling offers group therapy and individual therapy to assist in emotional regulation. Additionally, in some cases we utilize Dialectical Behavior Therapy, also known as DBT, to teach the children new emotional skills. We also have counselors who specialize in family therapy, so the whole family can communicate and be on the same page.
