Welcome to Child & Family Counseling Group!
We are here for your family...especially now.
At Child & Family Counseling Group, we are practicing and supporting COVID-19 protocols.
Tele-therapy (connecting with your therapist and working through issues online) has been shown to have excellent results - it will do until we can meet in person again.
Beth and Marté on Introducing Therapy to Children
Marté Matthews, LMFT, MFC Clinical Director and Beth Proudfoot, LMFT, Founder, Child & Family Counseling Group, Inc..
On May 18, 2021, Santa Clara County provided guidance to all businesses in the county that activities and operations should be provided outdoors. When the county public health recommendations change, and when all children can be safely vaccinated, we will re-examine our practices, and make the decisions that are in the best interest of health and safety for our clients and our staff members. We appreciate that this situation is far from ideal, and are grateful for your patience as we aim to provide mental health care under these extraordinary and constantly changing circumstances.
YES, WE MAY SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE
We have staff members who speak Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese. And English. :-) We understand the immigrant experience and its effects on children, and we're here to help if we can.
YES, WE ARE DOING TELE-THERAPY NOW!*
We know that we are "essential." All of our therapists are still working, mostly through teleconferencing.
Parent coaching is more important now than ever before as families are stressed to the max. Our clients appreciate not having to commute to get to our offices... and the tips and tricks we have up our sleeves to work together with parents to help kids to cooperate respectfully and manage their emotions during this challenging time.
And, yes, we are still doing individual work with children! Many kids are enjoying sessions in the park. And, we have been working hard on developing new and fun therapeutic activities for children online, which means that we can be effective even with young children. The tweens and teens, we've found, "kinda prefer" to see their therapists online!
AND... we've been working hard to be more helpful to our clients and to the wider community... virtually.
