It is said that children are our future, a simple phrase that couldn’t be truer. Children also tend to be the love of a parent’s life, and parents always want what is best for their children. However, no two children are exactly the same, and some might need a little extra attention. Do you, as a parent, wonder why your child is acting a certain way? Are you not sure how to talk to them about their anger, grief, or depression after some type of big event? No matter the problem, counseling could be your solution. But how do you know where to turn?

Choosing the Right Counselor
Deciding to seek out counseling can be very scary, but picking out a specific counselor can sometimes be even scarier. Here at Total Life Counseling you can be sure that your child is receiving the best care possible. We have a highly qualified staff that is full of caring and approachable individuals. These very counselors are often asked to provide advice on local news networks,print media, and radio, as well as speak at various conferences and seminars across the state of Florida. We often hear that it is easy to relate and open up to our counselors, and that is something that we take great pride in. But what makes Total Life Counseling a different, interactive counseling experience?

The TLC difference!

Our counselors not only meet with your children, they get to know them in a much more exciting way then just talking.

They use special “techniques” like play therapy, recreation therapy, interactive games, and more! They interact with the children and make a connection while also making counseling comfortable and fun. Our counselors often use groups, retreats, and camps to help the children while in a more social environment, not just within the walls of the counseling center. Popcorn, Xbox, and humor are a usual experience in a counseling session at our center. Your children will learn, connect, and have fun all while getting the benefits of counseling.

Another thing that TLC does differently is we use a more holistic approach when it comes to medication. Our counselors like touse dietary changes, vitamins, supplements, and behavior modification before turning to any type of medical referrals. Due to this, 85% of our ADHD clients have been able to get off of or reduce their medications!

At Total Life Counseling, you can trust that your child will be in good hands. We have many different services that are offered by our trustworthy counselors. We use different techniques that we are sure of and proud of, and we would love to help you and your family! Call us today for a free 15 minute consultation. We’d love to hear from you!
