Therapy in Yreka CaliforniaChildren First & Lassen Counseling are committed to providing professional, compassionate therapy services in Yreka. In a rural area like Siskiyou County, quality counseling services can be hard to find, but with us, you have access to licensed counselors who provide evidence-based therapies. In addition to quality care, we also offer flexible scheduling options. We understand that life can be both difficult and busy and we do our best to work with you. Here are some of the services we offer:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is the most common treatment used to treat mental and behavioral health issues. This therapy focuses on targeting unhelpful patterns in attitudes, thoughts, and beliefs, and assists the client with changing behaviors and regulating emotions.

Trauma-Focused (TF-CBT)

A trauma is any event in which a child or adult experiences a deeply distressful or threatening experience. Some traumas may be caused by specific events, such as abuse, a violent criminal act, a car accident, or the loss of a loved one. Others may be caused by neglect, abandonment, or the absence of fundamental needs being fulfilled. TF-CBT treatment helps clients heal from trauma.

Functional Family Therapy (FFT)

FFT focuses on working with families that are dealing with juvenile delinquency. It’s a form of interventional therapy that helps families communicate more effectively and support each other and move toward positive solutions and away from negative communication patterns. Lassen Counseling finds this whole-family approach to be very effective.

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)

PCIT is effective for children who have experienced abuse or who are exhibiting behavioral problems. In PCIT, a child and his or her caregiver attend therapy sessions together. The counselor assists the parent in learning parenting skills that will produce a more positive relationship with the child.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a treatment method for those suffering from trauma, particularly post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It’s based on the concept that traumatic memories are stored in the emotions, cognitions, and body (resulting in emotional and behavioral symptoms). Rather than asking the client to talk about the memory, EMDR uses physical stimuli, such as eye movements, sounds, and taps to help the client replace negative thoughts and emotions with positive ones.
