Almost 4 million children and teens may experience mental health issues. These issues can cause difficulties at home, school or with friends. At Anchorpoint, we have provided pediatric counseling since 1966. We know the struggles children and teens are facing today are vast and have made it our mission to help them navigate life through to adulthood.
Today’s generation of children are faced with higher anxiety and depression than any generation before them. In fact, 1 in 6 U.S. children aged 2 to 8 years had a diagnosed mental, behavioral or developmental disorder (CDC, 2016).
Our pediatric counseling focuses on teaching children coping skills and works with families to create environments that foster emotional and relational growth. We also offer play therapy and sand therapy.
A teen’s developmental years can be one of the most stressful times for them and their family. Teens go through identity formation and relational skill building. They compare themselves to peers and begin to learn what intimacy means. Many times these arising issues require counseling.
Our pediatric counseling can help clarify needed boundaries, expectations and consequences. It can also strengthen the communication process which often becomes minimal and secretive.
Our pediatric counselors are here to help your child or teen overcome difficulties during their developmental years, so they can become strong, independent adults. Please give us a call at 412-366-1300 with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
