Children and teens confront distinct challenges during an impressionable time in their lives. Polaris Counseling understands what they might encounter in looking to stay balanced in a world that can often be stressful. We also understand your care and concern as a parent or a loved one.
Perhaps your child or teen is dealing with inner strife about a divorce or re-marriage, sexual abuse, alcohol/substance abuse, or problems at school or with peers. Any of these issues can cause anxiety or depression that may manifest itself through anger, indifference, low self-esteem, isolation or harmful behavior such as cutting.
Polaris Counseling supports Oak Brook, IL, families with specialized teen and child counseling.
Teen Counseling for Oak Brook / Caring, Thorough, Connected
For many young people, the teenage years are a special time for enjoying life and friends, as well as further discovering one’s interests and potential.
The teen years also can be filled with pressure and uncertainty. Different stressors combined with a developing identity may lead to teen depression or anxiety. Should the symptoms of teen depression or anxiety start to surface, we as caregivers need to be patient and loving in helping our teens work through their struggles and move in a positive direction.
However, sometimes the problem facing a teen can linger and become more intense, leading to negative consequences such as cutting, self-harm or acting out.
At Polaris Counseling, our teen counseling for Oak Brook families seeks the heart of the matter so the core issue can be uprooted and resolved. We discuss and examine your teen’s difficulties and work with him or her on a personal plan to help a return to peace and stability.
We are here to help because we care. If you would like to learn more about our teen counseling for Oak Brook, please contact us today at (630) 779-0751.
Child Counseling for Oak Brook / Consistent, Attentive, Compassionate
Parents will feel many things when raising a child, such as pride, disappointment, joy, fear, wonder, confusion and deep gratitude – just about every emotion that makes us human.
Parenting also positions us to help our children shape positive behaviors and attitudes that will guide them for a lifetime.
Some children might get through childhood without a bump while others struggle with the journey. Problems might arise and then develop into problems that lead to poor performance at school, battles with self-esteem or even self-destruction.
If your child is having a hard time at home, at school or with other children, our child counseling for Oak Brook helps you resolve the issue in the best way for both the child and your family. Beyond working closely with you and your child, we ensure your child’s full support system is aware of how they can contribute his or her healing and growth.
We invite you to reach out to us if you feel you could benefit from a devoted partner in nurturing greater peace for your family. To discover more our child counseling for Oak Brook, including anxiety in children, contact us today at (630) 779-0751.
