Children often face unique challenges, particularly in difficult situations such as a divorce, death of a loved one, or something as simple as a move. Without the benefit of context and perspective provided by experience, children can find these situations even more challenging than adults. This can lead to anxiety, depression, and disorders stemming from losing things they care about. Some children have also been powerless in the face of sexual, physical, or emotional abuse, which itself creates extremely destructive patterns. Maria Droste Counseling Center has many programs which can help children in our community. Several members of our practice, The Therapist Group, actively specialize in working with children and adolescents. Beyond capabilities at our center, we also provide counselors for elementary aged children on-site at 21 local schools.
