Counseling for Adolescents and Young Children

If your child is experiencing problems at home or at school, counseling can help. Family sessions or one-on-one therapy can give your child a safe environment to share feelings and learn ways to deal with problems. Children who are stressed or anxious can especially benefit from counseling to help identify challenges and develop tools to address them.

Adolescents are not children, yet not quite adults and this in-between stage can be a difficult and emotional time. As adolescents mature and become more independent, they experience stress due to school, relationships with peers and family, self image, and due to pressure to take on more responsibilities. Talking to a therapist can be beneficial for a young adult in coping with these changes and dealing with confusing situations and feelings.

Our trained therapists can assist teenagers and their parents in navigating the rough waters and tough choices they may encounter during this period in their lives.
