We are children’s problems specialists who help children make meaning of their experiences and work through what bothers them. We also support parents better understanding their children. We provide short-term effective (or evidence-based) treatment to children and adolescents. The family is a central part of our treatment process. Parents and caregivers play an essential supportive role in enhancing social/emotional/behavioral development.
We can help when your child or teen has experienced a traumatic event, is having a difficult time with a loss, is experiencing difficulties regulating emotions, displays problematic or aggressive behaviors, has trouble academically or socially in school, and concerns with focusing in class or following through completing tasks.
Knowing what happens in the mind of a child is a challenge for all adults. When parents or caregivers attempt to communicate with their child or teen about emotions frustration and confusion can occur quickly.
At Mansfield Counseling, our counselors guide and work with children in a safe and structured manner with carefully chosen counseling modalities and techniques, which lead to forming healthy boundaries and encouraging creative expression.
Often, parents doubt their abilities as caregivers when there is a breakdown in parent-child communication. At Mansfield Counseling we think that giving children and adolescents an opportunity to express themselves to a third party they are comfortable with helps parents just as much as it helps their children.
