COUNSELING

Is counseling right for your child?

Today, more than ever, children are experiencing anxiety and other mental health issues that affect their daily lives. For parents, learning to address their child’s complex emotions and behaviors can be confusing. Coastal Kids Home Care is here to help. At Coastal Kids Home Care, our counseling team believes that mental health plays a critical role in the overall well-being of children. We coordinate closely with physicians, parents, and children to develop individualized goals of care. Together we identify the type of therapy most appropriate for your child’s situation and work in partnership with you to respond to their needs.

What is our approach?

  • Each family will participate in a thorough intake which will determine their eligibility for services.

  • If counseling is recommended, a child will be assigned to a therapist with the appropriate background to address their needs.

  • Therapists will work to build rapport with the child, often this takes three to four meetings, while also working with the parent to create an at-home plan of care.

  • Therapeutic approaches may include cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, or expressive arts therapies.

Who are our therapists?

  • Pediatric therapy staff includes licensed clinical social workers, licensed marriage and family therapists, and associates. Bilingual therapy is available.

  • Therapists will meet with children in our therapy office. Under certain circumstances, therapists can also meet with your child via Telehealth.

Who are the children we serve?

  • Children ages 5 – 21 who have mild to moderate mental health needs would benefit from one-on-one counseling.

  • Diagnoses may include anxiety, depression, body image/self-esteem issues, gender identity issues, learning differences, social skills challenges, domestic violence, post-traumatic stress disorder, mood disorders, complex health issues or terminal illness, and grief or bereavement.
