Child & Family Services

Child and family counseling is a specialized form of therapy that focuses on addressing the behavioral and relational needs of children and their families. It involves a behavioral health clinician working with both the child and their family members to promote understanding and positive change.

 

What is individual child counseling?

  • When working with children, our TFCC behavioral health clinicians create a safe and nurturing environment where the child can express their thoughts, feelings, and concerns. They use age-appropriate therapeutic techniques to help the child develop coping skills, build self-esteem, improve communication, manage emotions, and resolve conflicts. There is collaboration with parents or caregivers to support the child’s progress and implement strategies within the family context.

 

What is family counseling?

  • Family counseling involves a behavioral health clinician working with multiple members of a family system simultaneously. The focus of family counseling is to improve communication, resolve conflicts, enhance understanding, and strengthen relationships within the family unit.

Wrap-around services refers to a comprehensive and coordinated approach to providing support and assistance to children and their families. These services aim to address the child’s mental health and well-being by considering their individual needs within the context of their family and community. Wrap-around services aim to go beyond traditional counseling approaches by offering a comprehensive and coordinated support system for children.
