At Skyhook Counseling we have created a safe environment with inviting activities that feed the child’s language - play! Our equipment and approach are designed to fit your child’s unique needs.
Our program is designed for children ages 3-12, who are challenged by:
Developing Flexible Relationships
Sensitivity to Noises, Textures, or Clothing
Impulsive & Unsafe Behaviors
Following Directions or Sequencing Activities
Over- or Under- Stimulation
Therapy for children at Skyhook Counseling begins in the physical domain (using our gym), followed by a quieter and slower pace for emotional exploration. This combination allows for the activation of feelings and thoughts illuminating the child’s inner conflicts, so that problematic thinking patterns can surface and be explored. The child can then move toward self-acceptance, a corrective emotional experience and changed behavior.
As the child finds their world easier to navigate, self-esteem increases and challenging behaviors decrease. The richness and depth of relationships with parent(s)/caregivers are an integral part of the treatment and development of every child. Parent(s)/caregiver(s) meet regularly with the child’s therapist to discuss current concerns, progress in treatment and parenting strategies.
