Jennifer Ballard, MFT, LPCC, Marriage & Family Therapist in Santa Rosa
Are you wondering how to help your child? Do they struggle with overwhelming emotions or out of control behaviors? When such issues interfere with school, friends, or family life, it's time to take a new approach. I work with children from pre-K through late teens, dealing with everything from routine transitions to anger and anxiety to poor self-esteem and self-harm. My office is conveniently located in Santa Rosa, minutes off Hwy101. I have day, evening, and Saturday appointments available. I welcome your phone call and would be happy to set up a free in-person consultation.
I have a group of licensed and pre-licensed therapists passionate about helping families thrive. We use methods such as play therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy to help children resolve conflict and embrace new tools. Parents are an important and valuable part of the work. We can do this together!
The foundation of our approach is teaching new skills for immediate symptom improvement and working to resolve the underlying issue to sustain lasting results outside of therapy. It is said that the most important aspect in counseling is the relationship! We invite you to talk or meet with us today.
