    Adolescent Counseling

    Does your adolescent have trouble dealing with their emotions? Is their behavior sometimes disruptive to your home life? Have they experienced sudden loss or trauma?

    As they grow, adolescents develop social skills and emotional intelligence. This awareness helps them to develop into healthy, happy, and successful individuals. But some adolescents have trouble processing their emotions and this often leads to behavior that negatively impacts their school life, home life and overall well-being.

    Therapy offers adolescents a safe space to work through their thoughts and emotions. With the help of a therapist, adolescents can resolve problems, modify behaviors, and make positive and lasting changes.

    Adolescents can be faced with life’s challenges. The following are some of the events and scenarios that can impact their mental health and well-being:

    • The death of a loved one
    • Bullying
    • Physical or sexual abuse
    • Domestic violence
    • Moving or attending a new school
    • Divorce
    • Social anxiety
    • Depression
    • ADHD

    Therapy is not a quick fix to an adolescent’s behavioral or emotional issues. It is instead a thoughtful and comprehensive process that provides them with insights and skills so that they may become masters of their thoughts and feelings. This, in essence, is how they develop into happy, healthy and successful adults.
