Youth and Family Therapy

Youth & Family Therapy Services

Too much stress and screaming in your house? Lying? Tantrums? Flipping out over the smallest things? You’re child and you may be chronically stressed! This triggers a part in your brain that causes our protective reactions to kick in. Set up an appointment to learn more and get the support you need!

WE HAVE REALLY GREAT SUCCESS WITH VIRTUAL SESSIONS AND KIDS! They are in their own safe place, we get to see them in their environment, many times get to deeper things through the virtual platform and they think it’s so fun!

We are specifically trained to offer virtual sessions to youth with many fun therapeutic activities at the click of a link!





Ages 3-25Kids tend to do well with games, drawing, sand play, board games and other hands on activities.  We use these types of activities in several ways 1. the activity itself is therapeutic and teaching a lesson to the child or 2. the activity is something for them to do with their hands, so their mind is more free to share with therapist. Parents are very involved with the process as well with their own parent sessions to focus on interventions at home.   Family sessions are incorporated as needed.

Family sessions are defined as session with more than one person in a family.  They can help bring healing through learning communication techniques, processing a particular event, or just spending fun time together without quarreling.  Some activities may include a family shield, talking stick, puppet shows and talking about thoughts and feelings.  We also see couples for premarital counseling and relationship work.


strengthen your child's
  • One of the best ways to help a young person manage difficult times is cultivate in them an appreciation for their strengths.
  • Discover your child’s strengths to combat the areas of growth. 
  • If a kid feels competent at something, he is more likely to be able to cope with bad things that may  happen in his life.
  • Foster competency in your children!

take control of family


Do you talk over each other? Do you avoid conflict? Can you listen to someone else without thinking of what you want to say next?  


 Using “I” statements, is a great way to disarm your listener.  Using “you” can place blame and put others on the defense.



Calm down and take a “time out” before you talk about a problem or issue. Don’t forget to call “time in.”   

Due to the expansion of the COVID-19 pandemic, LIFEPOINT IS GOING VIRTUAL until the pandemic passes!  

Lucky for all of us, like many other insurance companies, Blue Cross is now covering virtual sessions (aka telemedicine)! We care so deeply for our clinicians and clients we want to do our part in stopping this from spreading. 

As of Monday 3/16/20, we are all set to support social distancing AND keep continuity of care through online video sessions from the comfort of your own home!  Please call our office or contact your therapist for further information. 

We are also offering 30 minute virtual sessions for those needing to manage anxiety and depression from the COVID situation itself. Please call our office to set this up!
