Child and Adolescent Services

Compass of Carolina can help. Our Child and Adolescent Counseling Program offers affordable therapy to kids and their families facing all kinds of difficult problems. We work together with children, adolescents, and their families to find solutions.

Experienced, compassionate therapists are available to help youth cope with life’s challenges in a caring and confidential setting.

Our therapists have master’s level training. Fees are determined based on a sliding scale. Some clients may be eligible to receive free, grant-funded counseling, based on the presenting problem.

We can help your child with . . .

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • witnessing violence
  • experiencing bullying
  • parents’ divorce/stepfamilies
  • coping with parental conflict
  • family and peer relationship issues
  • stress management
  • addictions
  • grief/loss
  • abuse survivor issues
  • life transitions
  • self-esteem
  • behavior problems
  • feelings of hopelessness
  • excessive worry

      What are the benefits of Counseling?

      Sometimes kids need someone to talk to, other than their parents, who they know will not judge them for their thoughts, feelings, and actions.
      Counseling is a cooperative process. You, your child, and your therapist will set goals. Together, your child and his/her therapist will work to explore alternatives and learn new skills.

      *No custody evaluations will be completed, and therapists operate on a “no court agenda.”

      What our clients say. . .

      “I feel like I can tell my counselor things that I might not want to talk about with my parents, but get better feedback than when just talking with my friends.”
      “I have seen a real change in my child since he started counseling.”
