Do My Children Really Need Counseling?By: Verna Dority, MSW, LCSW
Many years ago, counseling was perceived by many as something bad. If you had to go to counseling that meant that maybe you were weak, or "crazy," or couldn't take care of your own problems, etc.
Now counseling is perceived as a good thing...especially by those who have used it to help themselves and family members.
There are times when we all get overwhelmed. Sometimes talking to family members and friends helps. Sometimes they are unable to assist or maybe they are too biased to give us the guidance/assistance we need. It is comforting to know that one can reach out to unbiased professionals to help alleviate the stress, frustration, worry or anger that maybe keeping us from living our lives to the fullest.
That goes for our children as well. Often it is difficult for a parent to stand back and see the bigger picture of why their child behaves the way they do. Some children are very angry, some are extremely worried. Some children have physical, mental or other issues that keep them from functioning at school and at home.
Parents often believe they aren't good parents if they are unable to help their children with all of their problems. This is not the case. We all have our gifts and talents and we use them to the best of our ability with our children. As humans, we are limited however. One cannot do it all. We call the plumber when certain things need fixed in our house, we take our car to the mechanic when it stops working right and we take our kids to the doctor when they are sick.
If our child needs help and we don't know what to do, the next stop is counseling. Let a professional look at the whole situation and plan with you a course of action. You don't have to figure it all out yourself. Remember, counseling is a good thing...

Counseling and Therapy are often used interchangeably in our English language. The same is true for Counselor and Therapist. For us, it really doesn't matter which word you use. When you need help, it is best to talk to someone who is not only objective, but who has had lots of experience helping others who have been in similar situations as yourself. We believe that a friendly Counselor or Therapist who is trained, licensed andexperienced is the one who can assist the most. You don't have to figure it out alone. We can help. All of our therapists are licensed, friendly professionals.
If we can't help you, we will be happy to refer you to someone who can. We look forward to assisting you!!!.
