Counseling Services

Every child experiences challenges. Easterseals Counseling Services focus on empowering children and their families to live, learn, work, and play to their fullest potential

Caring for children of all ages is a tough job, however many children, youth, and teenagers with disabilities face special challenges. They may experience fears about the future, poor self-esteem, and difficulty coping with their disability. Many parents of children with disabilities also experience very unique challenges related to managing their child’s development and behavior. Counselors at Easterseals can help individuals and families, with and without disabilities, focus on their abilities, learn positive coping methods, improve challenging parenting tasks, and enhance social and behavioral skills in a comfortable and fun en­vironment. Counseling helps children improve their quality of life and works to increase their happiness.

Our Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors and Licensed Clinical Social Workers have experience providing services for individuals between the ages of 0 and 21 years of age.
