Anxiety, Stress & Trauma

Counseling for Children, Teens, Adults Dealing with Anxiety & Stress

Students Taking Exams
Holding Hands

Anxiety and stress can hold you or your loved one back from enjoying the fullest life possible.  Today’s world is full of stressors which can leave one feeling overwhelmed and plagued with uncertainty.  Anxiety can make it difficult to be your best self. 


For students, navigating the multiple demands of the school or college environment can be difficult.  Social pressures and academic expectations can take a toll on the strongest kids. If a child has social problems, performance pressure or family stress, this can cause them to act out in ways their peers, teachers or adult caregivers may not understand.

Our professionals work with individuals of all ages -- from early childhood through later adulthood -- to guide you through these difficult times and equip you with tools you can use to reach your personal goals.   


When working with children, parents are included jointly in the plan in order to transfer newly developed skills to the real-world setting.  We collaborate with teachers, social workers, parents, and your child or teen to find ways to address or minimize the triggers which may cause underlying anxiety and stress. By finding the right solution for your child, and putting it in place together, the child will have a better overall experience at school, at home, and in the community.
