Child & Adolescent Counseling in Northbrook
Few things are harder than seeing your child struggle–no matter what age. When you want support for them, you want the best. We understand! That’s why Inspire provides child and adolescent counseling in Northbrook with professionals bringing years of experience from schools, hospitals and Autism (ASD) agencies. We are staffed and able to get your child in within the week.
Our professionals “get” children and adolescents at their various stages in life. They connect quickly, build trust and help them to thrive. Counseling now is an investment in their future. The tools they will learn can carry into future relationships, work places, and into their adult life.
Often times parents say very similar things that counselors do to their children. But, with our tools and methods, we’re often able to see different results. Our therapists work closely with parents, families, Social Workers, psychiatrists or who ever is in each child’s life to ensure the treatment is most effective.
Inspire also offers support for everyone in the family (parenting, families, couples, etc.) to provide the best outcome for each child and their family system.
We love seeing our clients gain confidence, manage their anxiety/depression and learn tools that can impact their entire life.
