Outpatient counseling for children and teens

Whether you are in need of support for parenting a pre schooler with behavioral challenges, an elementary aged child struggling with worries or sadness, or need help with your teenager's sudden attitude shifts - Lifespan has a counselor available and trained to help with that. 

With an approach rooted in cognitive and behavioral therapy and play/art based techniques, counseling services for our youngest clients is a collaborative effort between parents and our children's counselors. 

Teens can work on an individual basis with many of our therapists, choosing in -office therapy or convenient video sessions via telehealth. For extra support, they can check out our Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) groups, and all of our therapists receive extra training in individual application of DBT for clients. For more acute issues, EMDR and Trauma Focused CBT trained clinicians can help your child recover - and get back to a life they love!

 

Q: Do they have to be seen in -office for  treatment? 

A: Not necessarily! Children usually do best in person. Teens can often do telehealth if appropriate. We offer convenient telehealth appointments to clients located in Nebraska. Discuss with your counselor if telehealth is the right fit for your young person.
 

Our staff nurse practitioners works with all ages 5+, and can provide new or ongoing support for any medication choices that support your child or teen staying well.
