Youth and Family Counseling

Lakes Center for Youth & Families (LC4YF) counselors  provide therapy services to the community as a part of LC4YF programs. Our expertise is in working with youth ages 10-18 and their families.

Counselors work with a variety of issues including relationship concerns, school performance, reasoning skills, depression, parenting situations, anger issues, divorce, chemical use, ADHD and many others. Our staff focus on finding solutions to the problems that affect people’s lives and giving them the necessary tools and support to be able to make positive changes in their own lives.

LC4YF counselors see beyond the problems and focus on the positive things that are happening. Our counseling clients have told us that they appreciate learning techniques for coping with their teenager’s behavior, improving family communication skills, and that they discovered new ways to find joy in their lives. Clients also express their appreciation of the non-judgmental support, down to earth, open and honest atmosphere provided at LC4YF.

LC4YF counseling services are affordable. We will work with your insurance company whenever possible and clients may also access a sliding fee scale to help with the cost of therapy.  We offer counseling onsite and at select schools in the Forest Lake Area School District.

Reasoning Skills Program (R.S.P.)

Reasoning Skills Program (R.S.P.) is a program designed to help youth and their parents explore how the child currently makes choices based on their reasoning skills. The facilitator will explore options with the family on how to improve the youth’s reasoning skills. The hopeful outcome of the program is that the youth will practice their newfound reasoning skills and will have more positive experiences at home, school, and with peers.

In this program we will explore where anger comes from, how it impacts relationships, and strategies for managing anger. For adolescents ages 10-18.
