Counseling for Children

Counseling for children at mindCARES

Suzanne, as a former classroom teacher of over 20 years, and as a therapist for over 16 years, has had extensive experience working with children. Edwina has been working in a mental health setting with children/teens for over 20 years. With empathy, expertise, and enthusiasm they develops a plan for each child and his or her family. Most parents parent the way that they were parented; unfortunately, that method does not always work with today’s children. Counseling can provide children and parents the opportunity to learn new skills to create a healthier home for children, teens, and parents.
