Treating Children

Mental Health in Children:

Mental health is an important part of children’s overall health and well-being. Mental health includes children’s mental, emotional, and behavioral well-being. It affects how children think, feel, and act. It also plays a role in how children handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. 1 in 6 U.S. children aged 2–8 years (17.4%) have a diagnosed mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder. Sometimes AnxietyDepressionTraumaGrief, or PTSD can be at the root of turbulence in a child's life, we can help! Addressing these important health concerns is of the utmost importance to maintain a healthy childhood.

How do we treat children at our office in Dublin, Ohio?

When tragic events occur in a child’s life, they may become traumatized and not know how to deal with it. There is nothing more frustrating and painful than watching your child struggle in life and not being able to help, and - unfortunately - on some occasions, parents make matters worse. Here we offer some of the best therapies and coping strategies to help get your child back to the smiling sunshine they once were.

More about our treatment style:

Your current situation must change. We will explore the behavioral and emotional difficulties that are interfering with your child’s health and happiness. We can help your child learn to cope with anxiety, frustration, impulse control, temper tantrums, improved capacity to trust, aggressive behavior, difficulties with sleeping or having nightmares, and experiencing worries or fears.

At the offices of Kaela Rae Vance LPCC-S, conveniently located in Dublin, on the North West Columbus, we take our patient's health seriously! We offer a holistic perspective to patient's mental health, that is often integrates not only a variety of therapy approaches, but also considers a patient's physical wellness. We recognize that taking a medication as a quick fix to reduce symptoms does not address what's causing those symptoms. As such, in addition to counseling - after we meet with our patients and get an idea of what specific concerns they have and what their lifestyle is like - we may refer patients to nutritional consultants, wellness experts, chiropractors, psychiatrists, or other medical specialists as appropriate.
