Adolescents

Adolescence can be a difficult time for parents and teens. Navigating through these years can be stressful for everyone involved, as the emerging adult experiences physical, mental, and emotional changes.

While challenges and disagreements can be a normal part of this time, outside support, encouragement, and perspective can help.

Adolescents experience stress and can benefit from therapy just like adults. Therapy helps identify causes of stress, develop skills for expression, and improve problem solving. Through identifying and developing strengths and growth areas, therapy can provide you with the opportunity to explore and experience your best self. Group therapy can be a useful tool for teenagers to gain perspective from peers.

  • Academic and Educational
