Teen Counseling

The teen years can be a difficult phase of life. At a time when they are least likely to want the advice of a parent, teens face many academic and social pressures. A therapist that focuses on teen issues can provide just the support that is needed during this transitional stage. Here are some common reasons teens show up in a therapist's office:

  • low academic effort
  • depression or irritability
  • angry outbursts or violent behaviors
  • oppositional or defiant attitude
  • experimenting with drugs or alcohol
  • struggling over a break-up
  • excessive moodiness
  • inappropriate sexual behavior
  • loneliness or social problems
  • victim of abuse or trauma
  • fights with parents
  • inattention
  • impulsivity
  • aggression or violence
  • trouble making / keeping friends
  • sibling rivalry
  • victim of bullies
  • loss of a loved one
  • parental divorce or separation
  • low self-confidence
  • performance anxiety or fear

In therapy, an adolescent can experience a safe haven from the pressures of the world, talk openly and honestly about their struggles and stressors, and learn new ways to approach problematic situations. With a supportive therapist, a struggling adolescent can learn to overcome the obstacles in their life, accept what they cannot change, and find happiness in their circumstances.
