Counseling for Teens
Adolescence is one of the most difficult times in a person’s life. Children’s bodies are suddenly changing, hormones are ‘raging’, social expectations are at an all-time high and society is marketing to and placing a great deal of pressure on the adolescent. It is common for parents become worried about how to protect their child (both from him/herself and from others), Even when things go well, this is a very challenging time, particularly in our society. Counseling for teens can help.
Sometimes kids need extra support to manage all of these pressures and challenges. Helping your adolescent come to a place in which they can enjoy the benefits of adolescence and learn to effectively manage the stresses is our goal. As with child therapy, we will want your support in the form of collateral meetings so we gain a fuller picture of how you child is in the world. Together we can help your child come to enjoy the special time of adolescence.
