Counseling Services

ExplorAbilities provides counseling services. Our mental health providers can be part of a team effort to help our clients on the road to feeling better.

Counseling services or behavioral health services can address a variety of concerns. Depression, anxiety, focus and concentration, temper tantrums, and feeling connected are just a few of the behaviors that may be occurring when learning that you have a medical issue.

Sometimes getting through the door is hard. Some mental health providers may be ill prepared to do with a child or the child’s family member. At ExplorAbilities we will have providers who have experience working with person with disabilities

At ExplorAbilities we look at the whole person and in a comprehensive way. We believe in collaborating with other providers and with the family. We want the community to learn how to support the child as well as the caregiver. Sometimes it is the added burden of making it to another location for another appointment that stops the person from getting help.

Disabilities sometimes refer single group of people but there is often a large diversity within that population. It is defined as a limitation to how a child or adult can function such as difficulty walking stairs, concentrating, remembering, or making decisions. No two people with the same disability experience it in the same way and there is a long list of disabilities which include vision loss, deaf and hard of hearing, learning disabilities, physical and mental health differences.

We understand that the stress for family members can be tough as the care for a child or adult with disabilities is very demanding. Siblings may feel left out or confused about how to help. Parents may find themselves quarreling about the care of a child. Many caregivers feel alone and isolated. Other everyday stressors may be present such as caring for other family members, poverty, online schooling and other COVID related restrictions.

We are here to help.

Telehealth services will be available as well as in office visits.

ExplorAbilities provides counseling services to promote emotional well-being for our clients and families. Everyone needs some extra support at different points in their lives and talking with someone outside of your established support system can be beneficial. The global pandemic has been a difficult and unprecedented time for everyone and is a good time to seek out additional support. We work with adults and children and you do not have to be receiving other services at ExplorAbilities.
