Counseling for Children

Raising children in these times can stress even the best of parents. It is reasonable to have questions and concerns throughout this process; Jewish Family Service believes that many worries can be relieved by a consultation with one of our licensed psychotherapists.

Reasons For Parents To Call JFS

  • Mood changes: anxiety, fear, agitation, irritability
  • Behavioral Problems in School
  • Power struggles/conflict within the family
  • Sibling rivalry/new child in the family
  • Homework issues, power/control
  • Adjustments to stepfamily life
  • Behavioral changes at home or in school
  • Withdrawal, self esteem issues
  • Grief/separation anxiety
  • Depression, sad or withdrawn behavior
  • Poor social skills

The Process

JFS psychotherapists will spend time assessing your child’s needs. This will include an evaluation of how your family can help the client. Recommendations will be provided to parents and may include:

  • Information for parents contributing to their child’s healthy development.
  • Psychotherapists to work with teachers and other school professionals by providing ideas for helping the student.
  • Ideas for collaboration with other professionals for an integrated treatment team approach.
  • Counseling or psychotherapy for the child, adolescent, and or other family members.
  • Information and referral services to other treatment, support, and/or educational programs.
