Teen Therapist in Westchester, NY

Adolescence is undeniably one of the most challenging periods in life. Even more so for teens now-a-days.  With stressors such as social media, bullying, and unending social pressures, anyone might have difficulty.  Some teens can navigate this time effectively, while others may need some help.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, nearly one out of five teenagers has a diagnosable mental health disorder.

This period of life can have a significant impact on your child’s future. The sooner mental health issues are addressed, the greater are chances that your teen will grow into a healthy and happy adult.
