Zumbro Valley Health Center provides youth and family counseling for those living in southeast Minnesota. It is normal for children and adolescents to experience various types of emotions as they develop and mature. Stress and anxiety can stem from school, sports, family, and social interactions. However, if symptoms persist, it may be time to seek professional youth and family counseling. Half of all mental health conditions start by 14 years of age, but most cases are undetected and untreated. By promoting mind and body care during adolescence, we can increase the potential to thrive in adulthood.

Psychological Evaluation

A psychological assessment is often helpful in understanding cognitive, behavioral, and emotional strengths and challenges. Children who struggle with mood or behavior issues may be living with a mental health condition. A psychological assessment can identify atypical neurological development. This allows parents, teachers, and therapists to provide the tools and treatment needed for a child to reach his or her potential. We provide integrative youth and family counseling that is unique to each individual's needs.
