Lakewood Counseling is committed to providing the highest quality of emotional and cognitive treatment for teens and families. We utilize evidence-based interventions (meaning interventions that have proven to be efficacious in research and practice) to treat a variety of pediatric concerns. Our goal is to work with a family to promote the health and well-being of each teen.
There are a variety of conditions and concerns that can impact a teen; therefore, it is difficult for us to develop a comprehensive list of every concern and condition that we treat. If your teen has concerns or a diagnosis that is not listed on our website, please contact us and we would love to help you through providing referrals or informing you if we have a clinician who does treat the particular condition.
Families who are working through the unique stressors of divorce often find that their teens can greatly benefit from therapy. These parents should know prior to scheduling their teen for counseling that a copy of the divorce decree is required for clinicians to start working with their teen. If you are currently in the divorce process, please be aware that though our therapists are qualified to work with your teen, we are not forensic psychologists and do not provide the services to determine teen custody.

Lakewood therapists seek to work closely with parents as a means to provide support to the entire family. Parents are often referred to Lakewood by teachers, administrators, psychologists, psychiatrists and pediatricians. Our goal is to provide good psycho-education and to guide parents as their children grow in the therapy process. Consultation will often include helping parents to structure the home environment in such a way that supports what the child is learning in therapy.
