Omaha Child & Adolescent Counseling

Child & Teen Therapy

 It's easier to build strong children than it is to repair wounded adults.

Young people today are faced with peer and academic pressures, learning how to navigate their home, school and online environments and the ever-present challenge of managing their emotions. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 1 in 5 children—ages 13-18 have or will have a serious mental illness.

At Counseling Connections & Associates, our goal is to help children and teens identify what is troubling them, get to the root of the issue, and develop strategies that will help them cope so they can reach their full potential.  We use treatments based in science with clear track records of success.
