Resilience Reset: A 6-Week Anxiety-Busting Kick Start (Ages 7-18)

Resilience Reset: A 6-Week Anxiety-Busting Kick Start (Ages 7-18)

Is your child or teen…

  • Struggling with anxious thoughts, feelings, or behaviors?
  • Intimidated by social situations or navigating friendships?
  • Frustrated by a lack of focus or ability to manage emotions due to ADHD?

Resilience Reset is a 6-week one-on-one counseling program that aims to reduce anxiety and kick start your child’s existing strengths, resources, and resilience to bring about change quickly.

Unlike regular therapy, Resilience Reset is a structured program with a beginning, a middle and an end. We meet for 45-minutes once a week for 6 weeks. It is ideal for families who have a limited amount of time or resources to dedicate to counseling yet would like to see a noticeable improvement in their child. Our most requested time of the year is summer!

Common Issues that Bring Kids and Teens with Anxiety to the Resilience Reset Program

  • Social anxiety or difficulty with friendships
  • Specific fears or phobias such as germs or getting sick
  • Loss of confidence, self-esteem, or ability to make decisions
  • Change in family dynamics including parental separation or divorce
  • Self-doubt or worry that others are judging them
  • Neuro-divergent differences in the family such as ADHD or Autism

Resilience Reset Curriculum Overview

1st Week: We get really clear on what your child hopes to gain from counseling and invite them into a very particular way of describing their life.

2nd Week: Specific age-appropriate tools and techniques are introduced that address the stress and anxiety in their lives and teach them to self-regulate.

3rd Week: Your child decides on the skill(s) they need to develop and apply in order to move towards the change they desire.

4th Week: We continue to build on your child’s new skill(s) as well as look at the areas where they’ve already been successful.

5th Week: Outcomes are clearly defined and progress is tied to the direct actions your child is choosing to take.

6th Week: We tie everything together and help your child to appreciate all the hard work they’ve accomplished during the past 6 weeks.

Benefits of the Resilience Reset Program for Children with Anxiety in Illinois and Florida

  1. Individualized counseling tailored precisely to your child’s needs.
  2. All sessions conducted virtually making counseling convenient, comfortable, and private for your child.
  3. An environment of collaboration with parents. For kids and preteens, I plan to spend the last 8-10 minutes checking in one-on-one with you where I can outline your child’s successes, any ongoing challenges, and how you can reinforce their progress between sessions.
  4. Your child learns to identify their triggers, how to communicate a need, and use their courage to move forward with self-confidence.
  5. Children feel empowered as they become the agent of change.

A Strengths-Based Approach

The Resilience Reset program is rooted in Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. This hopeful and effective counseling approach harnesses a child’s strengths and helps them become unstuck.

Your child will quickly notice that I ask a lot of questions! These questions expand your child’s vision of what’s possible in life.
