Help your child work through a traumatic experience?
Better understand your child’s trauma symptoms?
Work toward maintaining your child's personal safety?
Kids ages 2-18.
Kids living in Charlottesville or Albemarle, Louisa, Fluvanna, Nelson and Greene counties who have been victims of abuse or neglect, or have witnessed domestic violence.
Counselors may involve non-abusing parents, foster parents, or primary caregivers in counseling sessions.
Counselors help kids and adolescents process their trauma in many ways, including play and art therapy, drama therapy, and use of therapeutic games, and other evidence-based treatments.
Parents and caregivers can greatly contribute to their child's healing process. Counselors discuss preferences for parent and/or caregiver involvement with each family.
Counselors talk with the child and their parent or caregiver to set goals for counseling based on the individual child's symptoms.
Counselors provide the child’s parent or caregiver with tools and tips for how to help continue the healing process throughout the week at home and at school.
Counseling is provided at no cost to participants.
Our goal is to connect with your requests for information or support as soon as possible, all inquiries are responded to in less than 48 hours.
The first point of contact is a phone call where a Trauma Counselor will provide an overview of the program and schedule an intake meeting with the child's guardian as soon as possible.
At the intake meeting, the guardian should come prepared to provide information on the child's history and symptoms. If for any reason Inside Out Counseling is not a fit, the counselor will provide referrals to appropriate services upon request.
Counseling sessions are held the ReadyKids office, and at the Department of Social Services Offices in Louisa.
