Do You Feel...

If you recognize these symptoms in yourself or someone you know, reaching out to the experts at Foundations can be a convenient and effective way to start addressing these challenges. The team at Foundations is ready to guide you through your journey toward healing and personal growth. Taking that first step to seek help can lead to significant positive changes in your life.

Withdrawal from Social Activities

A sudden lack of interest in previously enjoyed activities and withdrawal from friends and family can signal that a child or teen struggles internally.

Mood Swings

Abrupt and intense changes in mood, from high elation to deep sadness, can indicate emotional turmoil that counseling can help stabilize.

Changes in Academic Performance

A noticeable drop in grades, loss of interest in schoolwork, or truancy may be signs of underlying issues like anxiety, depression, or attention disorders that counseling can address.

Increased Irritability or Anger

Frequent outbursts of anger, irritability, or being easily annoyed can indicate emotional distress that would benefit from professional support.

Changes in Eating or Sleeping Habits

Significant changes in appetite or sleep patterns, whether too much or too little, can be symptoms of psychological stress needing intervention.

Expressions of Hopelessness

Statements about hopelessness, worthlessness, or a lack of a future can be warning signs of depression or suicidal ideation that require immediate counseling.

Risky or Self-destructive Behavior

Engaging in dangerous activities, self-harm, or substance abuse are severe indicators that a child or teen needs counseling support to navigate their feelings and decisions safely.

Excessive Worrying or Anxiety

Constant worry, fear, or anxiety about everyday situations can significantly impact a child's or teen's quality of life, signaling a need for therapeutic intervention.

Physical Symptoms Without a Clear Cause

Frequent unexplained headaches, stomachaches, or other physical complaints can sometimes be manifestations of psychological stress.

Answers to Common Questions

What signs indicate my child might need counseling?

Signs can include changes in mood, withdrawal from social activities, decline in academic performance, increased irritability, changes in eating or sleeping habits, expressions of hopelessness, engaging in risky behaviors, excessive worrying, physical symptoms without a clear cause, and difficulty with concentration.

What should I expect from the first counseling session?

The first session is often used to build rapport between the counselor and your child. It's an opportunity for the counselor to understand your child's needs and for your child to feel comfortable and safe.

Can I be present during my child's counseling sessions?

Initially, counselors might request to meet with your child to establish trust. However, family involvement is often encouraged and can be arranged according to the counselor's assessment and the child's comfort level.

What are the costs associated with counseling or therapy sessions at Foundations?

At Foundations, each counseling or therapy session costs $200, or you can opt for a double session at $360. We also provide additional savings through our Healing Journey Packages, which are prepaid sessions available in bundles of 5, 10, 15, or 20, offering discounts that increase with the number of sessions purchased.

Does Foundations accept Insurance?

Foundations will provide any necessary documentation for you to submit for reimbursement with your insurance company. This approach ensures greater privacy, avoids mandatory diagnoses, offers more therapist choices, and promotes tailored session lengths, facilitating a personalized therapeutic experience without external constraints or documentation shared with insurance companies.

What if I need to reschedule my counseling session?

There is no charge for any session cancelled at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled appointment time.

Are you available in the evenings or on weekends?

Foundations offers flexible early morning, daytime, evening, and Saturday appointments. Please contact us at 970-227-2770 to arrange a session that fits your schedule.

Will the information shared in sessions be confidential?

Yes, confidentiality is a crucial aspect of counseling. However, counselors must break confidentiality if there is a risk of harm to the client or others.

How can I support my child during the counseling process?

Be open to communication, offer unconditional support, maintain a routine, respect their privacy, and encourage them to share their feelings when comfortable.

What if my child doesn't connect with their counselor?

It's essential for your child to feel comfortable with their counselor. If they don't connect, Foundations provides a counselor match guarantee and will work with you and your child to find the right counselor at no charge.

Are there any activities or practices we should follow outside of sessions?

Counselors may recommend activities or practices to support your child's growth outside of sessions, including mindfulness exercises, journaling, or specific behavioral strategies.

How will I know if the counseling is making a difference?

Progress can be seen in changes in behavior, mood stability, improved communication skills, and a return to interest in social activities or hobbies. Your child's counselor will also discuss progress and adjustments to the therapy plan as needed.

How long will my child need to be in Counseling?

The duration varies for everyone. Some people find relief in 8-10 sessions, while others benefit from longer-term treatment. It depends on individual goals and progress. According to the American Psychological Association 50% of people in therapy feel a sense of recovery and healing after 15-20 sessions.
