Wells Family Counseling is the place for parents who are looking for an authentic, nurturing, empathic, and strengths-focused approach to therapy. We believe there is no such thing as a ‘bad kid’ or a 'problem child'; only a child struggling to survive and be understood. We are dedicated to trying to understand the world through your child’s eyes.
The initial intake session will include both parent and child and is 70 minutes. Sessions are typically 50 minutes, but adjustments can be made based upon the child's needs; some children benefit from shorter session lengths. Frequency of sessions and the length of the course of therapy is variable, as it depends upon each child and family's individual needs. Typically, sessions continue for several weeks as it is an in-depth process to explore the complexities that contribute to your child’s struggles.
There are certain sessions parents and children will attend together and other times where the parents and/or child will meet alone with the therapist. This allows the entire family to reap the benefits of counseling.
We are a fee-for-service provider. Learn more about the benefits of private pay here.
