The first step to accessing our services is through the initial interview. This first appointment is for parents, and a subsequent appointment is scheduled for the child(ren). Therapists meet with parents separately to understand the issues affecting them and to talk about their concerns regarding their children. Therapists also provide parents with information about the counseling services provided. Parents may tour the office including the group and family counseling rooms; art therapy rooms; play therapy room and the sand-tray therapy room This helps them can get a better understanding of what happens during counseling sessions with parents and with children. Once the initial interview process is complete with each parent and the children, ongoing counseling services are recommended for the child(ren) and the family as needed.
Please note: Parents need not have been married to utilize our services. In addition, families may come to KITM at any time throughout the separation and divorce process and/or long after the divorce has been finalized.
Services for children in schools through the Students In The Middle School Outreach Counseling program (SOC) do not require an initial interview and take place at a variety of schools in St. Louis City. Click on Service For Kids below to learn more about the SOC program.
