We're a counseling and educational center focused on helping kids and teens. In fact, that's our specialty. We work with kids, teens, and their families- specialists in working with kids to promote good, healthy development. Our focus with kids? We want to help children grow emotionally mature and psychologically mature. We work alongside the child or teen with difficulties in anxiety, mood issues, behavioral concerns, and those unique students with ADHD and other neurobiological differences. And a whole lot more!
everything we can
to help get a
kid back on track, whether that is in the family, social or school arena. Let us
get to work.
Will be tailored to fit the unique needs and situation of each client. Many therapists at BPBC have been trained to work with adults with a variety of different presenting concerns.
The areas that need to be examined fall into three categories: expressive language skills (using language), receptive language skills (understanding), and articulation.
While many tests just try to answer the question,”Is there a problem with my child,” at BPBC, we want to understand all the parts of your child, both the strengths and the areas for growth.
FAMILY CONFLICT & RESOLUTION SERVICES
We work with the child to make the adjustments that are required, from new living arrangements, possibly new schools, new visitation schedules, and more.
BECAUSE WE ARE A CENTER
WE CAN PROVIDE WAYS TO CONNECT
with kids in counseling. We have several therapists on staff who are each unique individuals trained to use their unique personality to help kids and families. We have several different play therapy rooms and use the one that is most fitting for any particular kid. We have a number of options for teens, from sitting in a ‘regular’ room with couch and chairs to playing ping pong on the ping pong table while talking, or chatting while playing pool at the pool table or playing a game on Wii. We have an art room to allow for artistic expression of feelings, and some of us connect over baking cookies with the kids!
