Children & Teens
Being a child is hard. Adults don’t always remember what it’s like to be little. And kids don’t always communicate or behave in the same way as adults. Sometimes it seems like kids speak a whole different language. HWC has experience and tools to translate what kids are trying to tell the adults around them. We can help them process growing up. We can help them with behaviors they might be having at school or at home. We can help them process difficult times or trauma they have experiences or witnessed. We are patient while kids explore themselves and the world around them. We can also help you—the parent—work through some frustrations you are encountering. Taking some time out for yourself to talk with someone at HWC can be beneficial for you and your child. The first step in taking care of your child is taking care of yourself. Being a parent is hard work; and so is being a kid.
Being a teenager is also hard. Maybe harder than being a child. Adults don’t always remember what it’s like to be in between childhood and adulthood. And, you don’t always communicate or behave the way adults want you to behave. Sometimes you don’t even communicate or behave the way youwant to. Sometimes it’s like those adults in your life speak a whole different language. HWC speaks your language. We remember how hard it was to be a teenager and we also realize it’s different being a teenager today than it was 10 years ago. We know it can feel lonely and messy and uncomfortable. We will be patient. We will treat you with respect and kindness. We will help you explore the world around you and to continue to grow into the amazing person you were meant to be.

“Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say ‘my tooth is aching’ than to say ‘my heart is broken.'”
