Individual counseling sessions are offered for youth ages 5 through 18. These sessions are designed to teach social-emotional skills, develop emotional resilience, and support them to set and achieve their goals. The programming will be tailored to fit each individual’s specific needs, as well as include a parent component to help reinforce skills taught. Sessions are typically 50 minutes and may be adjusted to suit the age and attention span of the child. Sessions can be in home or office.
Social Skills Groups are groups of children of similar ages and development working towards similar social-emotional goals. Groups may address topics such as stress management, anxiety reduction, social skills, bullying and aggression, emotional regulation, impulse control, self-esteem, positive body image, growth mindset, and more. All group work will incorporate an element of yoga and mindfulness. Groups typically meet for ninety minutes once a week for 6 weeks.

As educators, we know there is often not enough time in the school day to meet all the needs of some of our students.

All groups are skill based and will teach students tools to help them be more successful in school and life. Heartspace Counseling for Kids can work with school personnel and/or the PTA to tailor groups specific to those needs. Our after-school programs are convenient and affordable. Some scholarships are available.
