Children can benefit from counseling and therapy just like adults can. Many kids need help expressing themselves and a trained counselor can help children cope with school and family issues, particularly if there’s a major transition, like a death, divorce, move, or serious illness. If a child suddenly seems withdrawn, worried, or acting out of character, a professional ear in a comfortable setting can do a world of good. Therapy for children focuses on self-esteem and improving relationships and communication. Denver Family Institute child therapists are experts at helping children cope with stress, develop problem-solving skills, a strong sense of self and emotional strength.
Teen & Adolescent Counseling
Many teens and adolescents are dealing with school stress, bullying, relationship issues, peer pressure, and a whole host of other issues that seem to be crashing down on them. During this time, teens can begin to act out in a variety of ways and you as a parent may feel helpless in knowing how best to respond and support your teen. At Denver Family Institute, we provide a comfortable place for your adolescent to express themselves in a true and authentic way. Adolescent counseling focuses on improving communication, problem-solving skills, learning how to cope with stress, and developing a stronger sense of self. DFI therapists are trained to work with and involve other family members in therapy as it makes sense in working toward therapeutic outcomes and goals.
