AMK Counseling

Children & Teens Therapy in Chicago

Help Your Child Reach Their Full Potential

If your child is struggling with their mental health, we understand how hard it can be to entrust someone else with their well-being. Children and teens therapy at AMK Counseling in Chicago is geared toward providing your child with a safe place to talk through what they’re experiencing, providing vital mental health skills that promote independence, and partnering with you to help them thrive.

How We Can Help Your Child or Teen Thrive

Your child’s therapist will strive to form a strong, lasting bond that helps your child feel comfortable and empowered. Your child’s identity should not be determined by their struggles, and we always treat the person first– not the condition. As a parent, we know you’re determined to support your child on their journey. We provide evidence-based solutions and compassionate care to help you both navigate the road ahead.

We can help with a wide range of common mental health issues, including:
