Working with Teens & Young Adults

Does your teen appear anxious or depressed? Do they frequently seem down? Angry? Aggressive? Rebellious? Are they struggling in school? Are they having trouble with friends or classmates? Have they been a victim of bullying?

Are you concerned about their self-esteem? Are they using drugs or alcohol? Harming themselves? Are you trying to help but you don’t know where to start?

We can help. Being a teenager is hard. There are a lot of changes happening and it can be difficult to process all the different emotions. Our clinicians work with your teenager to build a rapport.

Many Teens Struggle With Mental Health

Irritability, sleepiness, and sadness can be a normal part of being a teenager but some teens also have an underlying mental illness. One out of every five teens—20% of the population—has an underlying mental disorder and could benefit from early intervention. In therapy, we will help to isolate your teen’s current situational problems from deeper ones so they can get the help they need.

We work with your teen to resolve behavior problems and teach them healthy coping skills they can use for the rest of their lives. Our goal is to help your teen to recognize problems on their own and have the tools needed to fix them. We also work to repair communication skills and help families resolve any internal conflict.
