Ardent helped us to understand that it's not about who's right or who's wrong. We don't have to agree to agree, but we have to agree to communicate.

Child & Teen / Adolescent Counseling in Chicago, Illinois & Iowa

Ardent Counseling Center services are available for children to help with behavioral, emotional, learning, and relationship problems. Therapists work with children on a variety of difficulties including attention and hyperactivity disorders, anxiety, depression, disobedience, aggression, adjustment to divorce, blended-family problems, social skills and problems at school.

Individual therapy with children offers the opportunity to discuss problems one-to-one with a therapist. Sessions may be supplemented with activities and play materials. Discussions and activities are based on the age and developmental level of the child.
