We believe in brief solution based counseling for most situations. Usually, our goal is not to keep young people in therapy long-term. It is our goal to help you help them adjust relational skills and start living independently with more success.

We partner with you by helping your children learn how to mend trust relationships, to learn healthier coping skills, integrate positive strategies, and to live without self-harm. 

We understand that sometimes young adults can get blindsided by emotional pain and can make terrible choices.  Our therapists hope to be your "translator" to help them communicate their issue without feeling too vulnerable or judged.  We work with them, to help them untangle the mess, so you all can rebuild trust and start living positively again.

Although there is a place for it in the world – At Blue Sky Counseling Center we do not make our clients lay down on a chase sofa and tell us all about when they were 4 years old – nor do we sit behind them and write copious notes and saying Mmmm and uh Huh the whole time.  For children we do not play with doh for an hour and then ask them how they feel.  

What we DO!  We know that therapy needs to be a conversation – extending and sharing insight together.  Our therapists have many tools, lessons, strategies, and activities to keep the sessions interesting and focused on a counseling skill.  True learning occurs when young adults are emotionally engaged able to ask questions and compare how their beliefs join with the life-skill at hand.    We are skilled at overcoming adolescent resistance and have a long history of success forming an effective relationships.   We understand the complications that arise with college age adult children and the stress involved with common power struggle and dependency issues.  Let us help your family with the important LAUNCH into adulthood.

Referral Assistance:   We are connected with trusted licensed professionals to offer a multitude of services and have the ability to make effective referrals.

APPOINTMENTS:  Generally very young, and elementary aged children are seen in the mornings and mid-day times.  We reserve aftershool appointments for high school students attending in person full time high school.  Evening appointments are reserved for family group meetings and or interventions.  Please speak to your therapist about scheduling individually as they control their own calendars.
