Our skilled and knowledgeable clinician in our Manassas office can provide you with techniques and other support your family needs to effectively heal.
Our Manassas office provides counseling to children, adolescents, young adults, and families. Services include play therapy and talk therapy in areas to address home and school issues. Areas addressed include depression, anxiety, conduct disorder, trauma, transition issues from adolescent to adulthood, and more. You don’t have to go through your struggles alone.
The following services are offered in the Manassas Office:
Adolescents generally find it difficult to eloquently verbalize their feelings. They are often overwhelmed and even confused by the number of complex feelings that come as they move toward adulthood. However, for teens and young adults, most conflicts involve differences between family members or issues over expectations of parents, in addition to peer and school pressures.
Child Therapy and Counseling:
Children may encounter difficulties that parents and caregivers find difficult to manage. When a child’s tantrums, inattention, and defiance go beyond normal developmental behavior, it can become disruptive at school and at home. Child therapy can help children process their emotions and give parents/caregivers the necessary tools to better navigate their emotions. Children often benefit from play therapy if they are too young to communicate their feelings. The licensed therapist will provide a safe place to help them navigate their emotions.
Family Counseling / Psychotherapy:
Family therapy will help to promote better relationships and improve communication among family members. The skilled therapist will provide support to each family member to more effectively express their feelings and provide tools to work through conflict in a productive manner. Family therapy may include children/adolescents and their parents.
Psychological testing is one tool that helps diagnose emotional disorders, impulse control problems, hyperactivity, inattention, learning differences, social problems, and other conditions and concerns. Our clinical psychologist will administer standardized tests that compare your child’s intelligence, learning, processing, attention, social skills and personality to that of other similarly aged children.
