Child / Youth Therapy

Counselors at LFCS are licensed, or provisionally licensed, professionals who have extensive experience working with children and adolescents.  Our counselors work to create a safe and positive therapeutic environment for every client. They are dedicated to offering guidance to youth who are dealing with issues that affect their mental health and well-being. Every child will be encouraged to discuss their emotions and experiences, while simultaneously exploring their strengths and existing resources.

Issues addressed may include:
• Adjustment Problems
• Anger Management
• Anxiety
• Behavioral Problems
• Bullying
• Divorce/Separation
• Family/Sibling Relationship
• Grief
• Loss
• Trauma

Who is eligible?
Children under the age of 20 are served throughout this program.  We welcome referrals from parents, teachers, school counselors, physicians, social workers and others involved with children who need assistance.

What is the cost?
Based on residency of the child, the services may be offered at no cost or at a greatly reduced cost.  Children and youth who reside in St. Louis, St. Charles and Franklin Counties can receive counseling through the subsidy of the St. Louis County Children’s Service Fund, the Community and Children’s Resource Board of St. Charles or the Franklin County Children and Families Community Resource Board.  Some insurances and sliding fees are also accepted.  Please speak with the intake counselor to learn more about any fees related to this service.
