Counseling for Teens

Raising a teenager can be challenging.

Many adolescents struggle as they navigate schoolwork, new relationships, and their ever-changing hormones and emotions. It can be hard to figure out what is “normal teenage angst” and what needs more attention and support.

Your teen’s counselor can be that objective ally that your teen needs right now to feel heard, understood, and empowered to make positive healthy choices for themselves.

Approximately 20% of adolescents have a diagnosable mental health disorder

Some of the reasons parents bring their teens into counseling include:

Symptoms associated with ADD/ADHD

Defiance or behavioral issues

Bullying other kids or getting bullied

Struggles with gender identity

Engaging in self-harm behaviors

Grief and loss

Trauma including sexual, emotional or physical abuse

Symptoms associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Worrisome substance use or addictive behaviors

Difficulty succeeding in school

Concern over choices the teen is making within their social circle or social isolation

Engaging in risky behaviors
