Equinox Counseling & Consulting has just announced the opening of its new Coral Springs office. This facility will offer psychotherapy and anxiety counseling for children, teens and adults. Equinox is unique, in that it provides an exclusive protocol for the treatment of ASD (autism spectrum disorders) in children and adolescents. Moreover, it also offers psychotherapy and counseling their parents.


“Parenting a child with autism or mental health diagnoses can be stressful both for the individual parent and the entire family”.

Treatment for parents is extremely important, as dealing with autistic behavior can be very trying, and cause a great deal of stress and anxiety. This in turn, generates a fall-out effect, leaving parents under par, and mentally and physically exhausted, sometimes to the point that it can affect their relationship between each other, as well as with any other children they may have. It also diminishes their strength to support their autistic child, and react in the best ways, when they have outbursts.

Dealing With Children’s and Teen’s Anxiety

A personal approach is essential when helping children and teens with their anxiety. Equinox Counseling offers cutting-edge therapy, guidance, and support to lower the youngsters’ stress and fear – feelings which they unfortunately experience so frequently. The founder of Equinox Counseling and Consulting, Stephanie Eckler, stated: “I am pleased to be bringing my expertise and experience to our area with the launch of our office in Coral Springs. As a parent and a mental health clinician, I have observed the growing need to help people who struggle with anxiety, especially children and parents in the autism community. Being a good therapist is both an art and a science. At Equinox Counseling, we use scientifically proven methods and implement them in a compassionate and non-judgemental way using an approach tailored to the communities that we serve”.

Different Therapies For Different Age Groups

In the US, at the present time, around one in five people have general anxiety issues. Yet, as most people will realize, adults, teens and children, all face their anxiety in very different ways. To that end, Equinox provides situation and age-appropriate therapies which empower patients to be mindful of their personal triggers, and gives them the tools to manage them.
