From infancy to elementary school and every step in between, children go through all types of stages. Laurie Grengs Counseling offers pediatric counseling and play therapy for children ages six months to 12 years.
No two children are alike. They each have different experiences and are shaped by different molds. Some require more help overcoming challenges; others need little or no guidance. No matter your child’s age, any strain or emotional turmoil can elicit volatile behavior and may impact their mental wellness now and in the future.
Any number of circumstances affect children’s development and behavior patterns.
