Therapy for Teens

As a parent, you know that raising kids isn’t always a walk in the park. When your little ones were still, well, little, you had the power to guide them and shape their worldview. But now that they’re teenagers, it can feel like you’re losing that control. It’s tough to know what’s in their heads, and it can be frustrating to feel shut out from their world.

Parenting teens is no easy feat.

Often times adolescents need external resources to assist with the struggles they are experiencing. Just like you would see a doctor if your teen had a persistent cough or a tutor if they needed help with school work parents seek therapy for their teens to define problems and learn skills to improve their lives.

How do I know if my teen needs assistance?

  • Is your teen presenting concerning behavior at home or school?
  • Does your teen’s anxiety interfere with daily tasks?(ex: attending school, social events)
  • Do you have a hard time having conversations with your teen without arguing?
  • Does your teen suffer from suicidal ideation (making comments about hating life or not wanting to “be here” anymore)?
  • Has your teen had a sudden shift in attitude or behavior?
  • Has your teen asked you to speak to someone?

*This is not an exhaustive list of reasons by any means.  

If you have noticed some concerning behavior don’t wait until it gets worse – therapy can make a big difference. We believe that every teen deserves the chance to be happy and healthy. 

It’s crucial to have an experienced therapist who specializes in working with teens. We help young people navigate their emotions and provide them with the tools they need to thrive. Your teen deserves nothing less than the best possible care, and the right therapist can make all the difference

Are parents still playing an active role?

Yes. We highly recommend that you remain involved in your teenager’s therapy journey. We can provide you with the necessary resources to help your teen achieve their therapy goals at home. This can also serve as an opportunity to mend any communication barriers between you and your teenager as you collaborate together.

Once a strong foundation is established with your teenager, parental involvement may extend to participating in therapy sessions. Additionally, it could be a good time to consider family counseling to ensure that everyone in the family is aligned and working together as a team during this session.
