The Aventura Counseling Center provides the tools and atmosphere to help children and adolescents to express themselves, work on their problems, try different solutions and learn more effective methods to cope with life’s difficulties.

The treatment is customized to meet the child, adolescent, and family’s needs and wishes. Because children do not have the same language abilities as adults, we use play therapy as a way to learn more about children’s emotions and inner conflicts.

We also help adolescents explore their difficulties as they discover that a safe and thoughtful space is available to them where they can begin to make sense of themselves and their environment.

We offer family sessions to illuminate the experiences, past and present, which contributes to the particular difficulties of the child or adolescent. We also offer a safe space for thinking and reflection.
