Therapy for teens and tweens

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.

Signs that your teen or tween  will benefit from therapy 

  • self harm

  • social isolation or change of friends

  • struggling in school and/or at home

  • change in grades at school

  • changes in sleep patterns

  • angry or irritable behavior (outside of the normal teen angst)

  • thoughts of suicide

How does therapy for teens and tweens work?

Psychotherapy offers a safe and objective environment.  Our therapists can help your teenager develop the skills needed to cope with challenges they are facing.  


Our therapists meet 1-on-1 with teens to help them communicate their feelings and struggles.  Sessions with teens are also 100% confidential, excluding any safety concerns.  This respect to the teen's autonomy helps them to open in therapy and fully benefit from the sessions. 


Sessions with parents are also helpful in understanding your teens behavior.

Give us a call to find out how we can help your teen.
