College Students

College is one of the biggest life transitions your child has had to face so far in their lifetime.  For some, the thought of going to college is exciting!  New opportunities, new friends, new classes.  For others, the thought of going to college is scary.  Moving away from home, away from the familiarity, more responsibility.  For most, the thought of going to college is BOTH exciting and scary. Our therapists provide the necessary support to your child so that they are able to normalize the difficulties they face while learning the tools/skills they need to thrive!
