How involved am I in my child’s therapy?
The answer to this question depends on the age of your child. For younger children, it is difficult to get change unless parents are an active part of the process. We can help your child develop new skills, you are the one who is in their life every day. For teens, parents are often involved to a lesser degree as they are beginning to gain independence. That being said, you are still an important part of change for your child.
Does MVP provide family counseling?
Yes, we have counselors with family experience. Typically an initial appointment is made to evaluate if in deed whole family counseling is the best or if members of the family need separate attention. The counselor will evaluate the circumstances and confer with family members on the best course of action.
Can you provide therapy services for siblings?
Yes, typically it is will be recommended that siblings are split up for sessions and have their own counselor. This will ensure that trust is developed between the counselor and child. It is also important that each child feels they are being cared for as individuals.
Do you see young children?
Yes, we have a counselor that uses play therapy with children as young as four years old. Young children communicate through play and utilizing play therapy is considered best practice to meet their needs and create change.
Do you have after school hours?
Yes, all of our therapists provide after school hours. We are grateful so many families have chosen MVP to assist them and due to our desire to service every family to the best of our ability, after school hours can be limited because of the demand. If an after school appointment is not immediately available, we can let you know as soon as one becomes available.
