At Our Agency
Group counseling for children ages 3½ through 18 is our core service and is the basis around which all other services revolve. Through group counseling activities, children assist each other in identifying and normalizing their feelings and help each other express themselves regarding the changes in their families. With the guidance of our therapists, children teach each other positive coping skills and acceptance; both of which help them now and in the future.
Some children are more comfortable working with a therapist one on one, while others may need individual support in addition to group counseling.
In Our Community
Students In The Middle® School Outreach Counseling Program
KITM therapists provide free group and individual counseling services in public and private schools in St. Louis City through our Students In The Middle® School Outreach Counseling Program. Children are referred to the groups by their parents/guardians as well as by school counselors, social workers and teachers. Our Students In The Middle® program staff works with students dealing with family transitions such as divorce, separation, loss, deployment, homelessness, violence and other traumatic family issues. Funding for this program is primarily through the Saint Louis Mental Health Board.
