Children & Adolescents

Play Therapy Prep children tackling the world

Play Therapy Prep

Ages 3-5

Our AWESOME Play Therapy Prep program for children is designed to get your child ready to take on preschool, kindergarten and most importantly... the playground 😉.

Your little one will love attending Play Therapy Prep! Children engage in drawing, puzzles, games and Nintendo while learning skills that will help them to be successful in school and the "real world."

Childhood is full of new experiences and adventures that can feel scary to little ones. These "scary" experiences often trigger anxiety in young children.

We want to help your child with their anxiety so they feel confident taking on everything childhood has to offer.

Kids Participating after Play Therapy Program

Play Therapy

Ages 6-12

Our FUN Play Therapy Program engages children through the act of play while helping them reach their individual therapeutic goals at the same time. Play Therapy sessions are done individually or in a group dynamic. Children and adolescents enjoy age appropriate games, drawing, puzzles, Nintendo® and talk. Please call us to find out more about our play therapy program.

Counseling is done in a non-intimidating, friendly and laid back environment.

Adolescent Counseling for Teens

Your teen will look forward to their counseling sessions! Our Adolescent Therapy Program is flexible and allows teens to engage in activities such as drawing, Nintendo and talk or just talk!

As parents, we want to help our kids but they don’t always open up to us. Adolescent years are not easy but can be more manageable with counseling. There is so much pressure on kids and the percentage of adolescents suffering from anxiety disorders is on the rise.

At A Little Counseling, we “get it”—so much that our entire practice is dedicated to anxiety. Our therapists help adolescents build confidence, gain new coping skills, manage anger and frustration and learn how to handle anxiety. We want your teen to walk away from counseling with tools to help them manage everyday life on their own!

A Fact About Anxiety

"80% of Kids with a Diagnosable Anxiety Disorder are Not Getting Treatment"

We all experience anxiety at times in our lives. It is our body's natural reaction to stressful or perceived stressful situations about what might happen. Anxiety can be motivating and help drive us successfully towards a goal and it can also interfere with our day-to-day success and productivity. Children are susceptible to these feelings as well.

If your child is having difficulty with one or any combination of the below they could likely benefit from our Play Therapy program. Our goal is to help children reach their individual therapeutic goals and be able to handle the everyday stressors that come up throughout their lives.
