Every child is different, sees the world in a unique way and has their set of challenges as they grow up. Kids are impressionable and developing both physically and emotionally on their own journey. When a child is struggling, whether it be a battle with test anxiety or bullying at school, or having trouble because of a separation or divorce, getting them help and support can be an important step to help them continue to develop in a healthy way.

Experienced Children’s Therapist, MN
Many parents are reluctant to initiate a counseling relationship for their children, likely because they fear the labeling that occurs with children in therapy. But those labels are finally going away. We wouldn’t fail to take a child to a medical doctor when fever is present, and we should not fail to take a child to a qualified psychologist when mental health therapies may be in order.
One goal of the therapeutic relationship with children is to identify the underlying cause of the presenting problem. But beyond that professional baseline, it is important to simply help the child feel comfortable talking with the therapist so that forward progress can be made. Laurie Grengs does exactly that. Whatever the issue or issues being faced by your child, Laurie Grengs will be able to provide insight about the causes and strategies for making improvement.
