Child & family institute counseling therapy

At Child & Family Institute Counseling Therapy, we know that parenting can be rewarding, joyous, and exciting. It can also be scary, tiring, and frustrating. These feelings are especially true when your child is struggling and you’re unsure what to do. It brings up all kinds of questions and insecurities.

Sometimes we can’t do it alone and need help and guidance. You may have heard the saying, “children don’t come with instruction manuals.” Truth be told, if a manual did exist, it probably wouldn’t be much help as every child is different. So, what do you do when you have tried everything you know, but it’s not working?

Here is when Transformations Counseling Group Child & Family Institute Counseling Therapy can help. The idea for the Transformations Counseling Group Child & Family Institute counseling therapy began because, frequently, entire families need support while trying to communicate, learn, and create boundaries.


Because we focus on children and families, our therapists stay current with the most recent research and information. They use their own knowledge and experience and consult with each other, using a team approach to get the best possible options for each family’s situation.


Why are they behaving like this?
Do they need medication?
How can I help my child?
Am I a bad parent/are we, bad parents?
What do I say to them when we are at home?
What do I say to them when we are at home?
Won’t this just pass?
Do they need medication?
What should I be doing at home?
What should I do to make them stop/start doing something?
Will they always be like this? (sad, angry, defiant, etc.)
What do I do if they are hurting themselves?

Therapy believes you are doing your best for your child. Often time what we know isn’t enough. We understand you’re scared, maybe even feeling shame. There is NO shame in reaching out for help.

We can help! We will partner with you in a SAFE, non-judgmental place where you and your child / family can learn new skills and techniques to help you help your child & family. You will learn essential skills like:

Speaking in a tone that is compassionate and non-judgmental – fair-minded.

Parent the child who is in front of you. “Be the parent your child needs you to be, not the parent you think your child needs.”

Understanding changes in behavior is an indicator of distress and not a personal affront to you.

Children and teens can have problems that affect how they feel, act, or learn.

An insurance deductible is "The amount you pay for covered health care services before your insurance plan starts to pay". With a $2,000 deductible, for example, you pay the first $2,000 of covered services yourself before the insurance company will start to reimburse the health care provider. Once a deductible is met, the amount you have to pay for a copay/co-insurance is set by your insurance company. You will need to contact them for the exact amount.

VERIFICATION OF INSURANCE DOES NOT GUARANTEE PAYMENT FROM YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY Pay portions are estimates based on the information provided to Transformations Counseling Group, LCSW by the patient and his or her insurance carrier. The patient/guarantor must understand that having an insurance benefit does not guarantee payment. Exact benefits are determined when claims are received by your insurance company. There is no guarantee on our part that claims will be paid. If a claim is denied, the client will be immediately billed for the outstanding amount while the denial is investigated. The insurance carrier makes the final decision as to whether payment will be made after it receives and reviews the claim. Some insurance companies use third-party processors for handling their mental health claims. This may be unknown to us at the time we verify your insurance and the information we receive can be inaccurate. We strongly recommend you check with your insurance provider for further explanation of your coverage. When a client is treated at Transformations Counseling Group, LCSW (TCG), as a courtesy, TCG’s staff contacts the patient’s third-party payor to check insurance eligibility and pre-certification for insurance payment. We do our best to get accurate information but verification doesn't guarantee payment or accuracy. We advise you to call and check with your insurance for your exact plan benefits. Every insurance policy is different. It is recommended that you contact your provider about copayment, deductible and out-of-pocket expenses, and pre-certification requirements. Also, as a courtesy, Transformations Counseling Group. LCSW will bill the client’s insurance carrier for services. The patient/guarantor is responsible for all outstanding balances should the insurance company fail to pay all or any part of the charges. The client’s Financial Counselor must be informed of all insurance coverage prior to the first visit. Any non-payment as a result of the patient’s/guardian’s failure to provide insurance information prior to the first visit is also the patient’s/guarantor's financial responsibility. It is the patient’s/guarantor’s responsibility to ensure that all insurance premiums, dues, and COBRA payments are current throughout the patient’s treatment at Transformations Counseling Group, LCSW PLLC Any costs incurred by the patient/guarantor due to a change in the patient’s insurance policy are the sole responsibility of the patient/guarantor. The patient’s insurance coverage is a contract between the client and an insurance carrier – not between Transformations Counseling Group, LCSW, and the insurance carrier. As such, the patient should be aware that insurance policies often change. It is the client’s sole responsibility to know his or her coverage. Any costs incurred by the patient/guarantor due to a change in the patient’s insurance policy are the sole responsibility of the patient/guarantor.
