Adolescence is a challenging time for both teens and parents. Individual therapy with teens can help manage the ups and downs of this stage of life. Adolescents today are faced with unprecedented pressures. The impact of social media has changed the landscape of the teen years. Teens today are exposed to issues such as bullying, sex, and drug use far too often. The rates of suicide in this age group are skyrocketing.
All of that sounds pretty scary! The good news is that counseling will provide your teen with a confidential, adult, professional to help them navigate life’s challenges. We focus on anxiety, depression, sexuality, gender identity, body image, trauma, ADHD, self-esteem and even setting goals for the future.
Simply talking through relationship stresses, social drama, and the like with a therapist will help teens problem solve, manage conflict and learn to set boundaries with others. Managing emotions is a skill and now is the time to learn!
