Therapy for Teens

Therapy for Teens

Teens today are dealing with so much more than ever before.  They encounter pressures, big emotions, confusing and distressing thoughts, self-doubt and self-harm all while you as the parent are trying to support and love them, to connect the best you know how.  But often your teen will shut down, act out, or push you away despite your best efforts.

Adolescence is a time in life that is both incredibly exciting and difficult.  The job of adolescence is to create some separation from the family, develop some independence and try new things, while also balancing that with the need for continued guidance, support and love from trusted others.  I would love to help provide a safe supportive space for your teen to process and express thoughts and feelings in a confidential environment and explore the changes, decisions and issues that they face.

Whether it is anxiety, social issues, depression, self-esteem, isolation – there are countless issues teen face.  Teens do not always feel comfortable being open and honest with a parent all the time, and their friends do not have the maturity, experience or training to help.  This is where therapy can be incredibly beneficial for you teen.

We are here to help and support your teen and family in this part of your life story.  We will start with an assessment, create a plan, and meeting schedule, and then work on building a non-judgmental space for your teen to process their feelings and thoughts and also learn life skills and how to navigate those thoughts and emotions in a healthy way.
