Do you need a child psychologist in Arlington Heights IL? Whether this is the first time for getting counseling for your child or not, child counseling can be very beneficial. Lighthouse Emotional Wellness Center invites you to schedule an appointment for us to meet with you and your child and get to know your situation. Even the most troubled children and adolescents can be helped if we don't wait too long to seek help.


Do You Need a Child Psychologist in Arlington Heights IL?


People often get the terms "psychologist," "psychiatrist," and "counselor" confused. Lighthouse Emotional Wellness is a great place to go for a child psychologist. To make sure that you understand the difference between these terms, please, let us explain.

What is a Psychiatrist?

A psychiatrist is a medical doctor. For the most part, their practices deal with prescribing and then monitoring medications.

What is a Counselor?

Counselors have a Master's degree in psychology and a related field.

What is a Psychologist?

Psychologists have a doctorate in psychology. This involves eight years of training in the assessment and intervention of children and adolescence.

At Lighthouse Emotional Wellness Center, we distinguish adolescent therapy from adult therapy largely based on what the developmental differences are- what the developmental tasks are for that age group. This is "Who am I? And how do I fit into this world?"


Does My Child Need a Psychologist?


When parents are debating whether or not to bring their kids in for therapy, remember that it's always better to be safe than sorry. If you expect that your child may have some deep-seated issues, either emotional or behavioral, it's best that we deal with those problems now, rather than waiting until they become an adult and problems have grown out of control. Once kids become adults, they are less forgiven and held accountable.

The first piece of advice that we'd like to offer you is to sit down and spend some time talking to your child. Find out what therapy means to them. Once you've made up your mind that you want to try counseling, give us a call. Our first session is always a free consultation that doesn't cost anything. You may set an appointment at any time you'd like. We'll do our best to accommodate your busy schedule.


What Happens at the First Consultation?


We want to use this time to get across what it is that we do. But more importantly, we want to use this initial consultation to get an idea of how your child perceives his or her problems and what it is that he or she wants out of treatment. It's important to help kids understand who they are and how best to fit in with other people. This is what makes the crazy years of 12 to 20 so critical! If we can help children to get a better understanding of that, developmentally speaking, then we feel that we are doing our jobs.
