Youth Counseling Programs –¬†Children and adolescents may experience various types of emotional stress¬†as they develop and mature. Anxiety about school or short periods of depression, that pass without incident, are fairly common.

As your child transitions into the teen years, you may see specific changes in behavior due to normal brain changes. However, if symptoms persist or if behaviors transition outside of the normal range, it may be time to seek psychological treatment. Most youth are physically and emotionally healthy, but some may meet the criteria for a serious mental disorder. Undiagnosed disorders can lead to trouble in school, unnecessary conflict with peers or entanglements with the law.

In addition to treatment programs, Summit Psychological Associates provides diagnostic psychological evaluations and court-referred psychological evaluations, as well as testimony for juveniles with legal trouble or those currently serving in a juvenile detention facility. Legal action may be modified based on expert witness testimony.
