Teen Counseling

Comprehensive Counseling SolutionsThe transition from childhood to adulthood, better known as the teenage years, is a critical time in everyone's life. This is when young adults begin to form their own unique identity that defines who they are. This stage is not only troublesome for teenagers but parents as well. Teens may begin to challenge parents and other adult authorities, which tests their boundaries but can fuel many arguments. Although it can be a trying time, it can also be amazing to watch your adolescent transition into a young adult.

There are numerous emotional strains affecting your teen that may sometimes result in the need for psychotherapy. Teens today face so much more pressure during their developmental stages than ever before. Issues like low self-esteem, depression, eating disorders and substance abuse need to be addressed, not ignored. Avoiding real problems can have an unhealthy impact on your teen's ability to cope with daily life.

With the belief that the most important person in your teen's life is you, we first schedule a meeting with the parents or caregivers. This allows our therapists to get a better understanding of the difficulties your teen is facing. Discovering the root of the problem, whether it is at home or school, will best help us to determine how we can help.
