Testimonial: “I just wanted to shoot you an email to thank you for your help with our daughter.  I can’t tell you how perfect these Monday evening sessions are.  They address the EXACT problems she is currently having at school.  She loves coming to see you and the boys in her group.  I am sorry for all the interrupting she does.  I am grateful for how kindly and respectfully you handle it–it teaches me how to do the same.  I have been spreading the word about the TLC center.  Her psychiatrist, Dr. Susanna Chyu was very intrigued.” – Parent

Do you feel that your child has trouble connecting with other kids their age? Do you worry that they are going to have trouble in the “real world” due to their social inhibitions? Would you like your child to get calls for play dates or to hang out?

There are many things that you might notice about your student that make you wonder what you can do to help them. Maybe they often get in other student’s personal space, or maybe they lack assertion. Perhaps you have noticed them blurting things out or even getting teased by the same peers they would like to hang out with. Whatever the reason, our counselors can work with the student to help them get along better with their peers and even make close friendships.

More Testimonials:  We were so thankful to Total Life Counseling. Over the past five years, we had seen five other counselors/psychologists with our son, but in the last 1 1/2 years our son gained skills to cope. The ADHD/Social Skills group helped our son realize that he was not alone. The parenting skills group helped us know how to anticipate problems and equipped us to handle them. Thank you Jim and Total Life Counseling – you are an answer to prayer.  Tim & Janet-Parents

Jim really speaks to the children where they are. You might expect a child to feel negatively singled out when they attend special group sessions. However, in this case, the singling out is positive. My child looks forward to attending the group and is seriously disappointed when a session has to be missed.  Barbara-Parent

It can be difficult to find the perfect counselor, especially when it is your child who needs the help. You might be worried about who they will be seeing, how they will be treated, or if they will get the help they need. Here at Total Life, our counselors have quite a bit of experience and expertise, and are often interviewed by television, radio, and print media. We have often been told that our counselors are easy to approach and speak with, which is something that we take a great amount of pride in. On top of that, many of our counselors are trained in specialized therapy techniques and tend to take a more interactive approach with students and young adults, especially in group settings.  You can count on Total Life Counseling to bring your child the best treatment available and to make you feel safe in bringing them to counseling.

Would you like for your child to learn social skills and leadership by being included in a group of their peers? That is the basic idea of our Ropes Course Day Camp – building the social skills they want and need in a new, already social environment. This camp divides students up by their ages and puts them on a Low or High elements ropes course where they will be encouraged and cheered on by the other students in the group. They will not be forced to do these ropes courses if they do not want to, but we have found that students tend to come out of their shell when kids their own age encourage them. This course can help students with leadership, character building, responding to bullying, and many other types of necessary social skills. Read More

Social Skills Summer Camp
This is a great Summer Camp for ADHD, ADD, Aspergers, High Functioning Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder and other kids that need help catching up socially.  Here at Total Life Counseling we offer a one-week, overnight camp experience where your child will blend in with other students at a YMCA summer camp. This process is a wonderful way for our counselors to see how your child reacts to a “normal” camp experience where they are surrounded by kids their own age.  Our counselors will blend in as well, wearing camp counselor t-shirts and explaining that they are from “Total Leadership Camp” to keep your child from feeling singled out. However, your child and the rest of the group will get more time on the ropes course every day and during this time our counselors will meet with them to discuss how the day is going. This is a wonderful learning experience for all involved, as it teaches character building, communication skills, responses to bullying and many more skills. Read More

Are Girls Meaner Than Boys?

Can’t we all just get along? The answer seems to be, “no,” especially among adolescent girls. We have all heard that girls are meaner than boys, but some studies report that girls are simply more “aggressive” indirectly. Psychiatrists call it “indirect aggression.”

What is indirect aggression?

Indirect aggression is also called “social” aggression. When closely analyzed, […]
