Welcome to Parakeleo’ Counseling LLC!
Parakeleo' Counseling was established to help identify and support the mental, emotional, and behavioral needs of children, adolescents, and families in our communities. We provide high-quality professional counseling and therapeutic mentoring services to children and teens, ages 4-19 who have a confirmed or suspected mental illness or behavior disorder.
Parakeleo' is a Greek word meaning to come alongside, to encourage, strengthen, and teach.
We offer both child and teen counseling -including play therapy, “geek” therapy, walk & talk therapy, and more to children of all ages!
Play therapy is a special therapeutic approach that allows counselors to encourage play in ways that reveal concerns, problems, and challenges the child may be struggling to articulate. therapy offers children and adolescents a less threatening approach to talk therapy.
Geek therapy operates on the principle of affinity (using common interests and backgrounds to establish trust and rapport) and involves the incorporation of video games, comics, science fiction, and superhero franchises in session. This approach is particularly useful when working with children on the autism spectrum.
Our mission is to help young people and their families achieve mental and emotional wellness in an environment optimally designed to support healing, growth, and transformation. Here, children and teens develop self-control, self-responsibility, and appropriate self-esteem.
Many teens are brought to counseling at the suggestion of their parent/caregiver. We understand this and meet the teen where they are in their process.
Parakeleo' Counseling aims to educate, strengthen, and support our community so that no child is ever left behind.
