You may choose to have your child receive therapy or counseling for a variety of reasons. Some of these reasons may include, but are not limited to, any from the following list. There are many more phenomenon the White Oak may provide services for. Please inquire within and we will get back to you soon with an answer or referral to another provider as needed.
When working with children we more often than not include the family. We may have one on one therapy sessions with the child and some family therapy sessions for best results and to reinforce changes made in our journey towards greater growth and wellness. Typically children that are more independent and having more successes are most often or all the time seen one-on-one with communication with the family conducted “on the side” with the parents as needed. We aim to work with children presenting with a variety of mental health and situational concerns and if we feel we can not provide premium therapy and support then we will refer you out to someone within our network.
In addition to individual and family therapy sessions, play therapy may be incorporated into your tailored plan when working with children. Also, we may involve aspects of arts and craft, music, and sport as needed to enhance the overall growth and wellness potential while alleviating the symptoms of your child’s disorder, dilemma, or presentation.
Children’s play is there work! Play therapy is used to help children work through problems and dilemmas in a fun and engaging dynamic manner.
Play therapy has been found to be very effective for a wide variety of childhood and mental health based problems or dilemmas.
In the event that we or the family does not find that we are best fit for your child’s specific needs or presenting problems, then WOI will provide a list of referrals for you to consider. Your child’s well-being is our first priority.
