Counseling & Psychotherapy for Teenagers

[text_output]

Adolescence is characterized by transition in many senses of the term. Biologically, this is the time of puberty and “raging hormones.” Psychologically, this is a time of tremendous intellectual and cognitive growth best exemplified by the “know-it-all” teenager.  Socially, during this time teenagers are transitioning from operating predominately within the social structure of the family system to venturing out on their own to discover and develop their own social niche in the world. Each transition can present its own set of obstacles, but when significant life setbacks and/or mental illness enters into the picture this period of life can quickly turn from being one of transition to one of seemingly inescapable turbulence for teenagers and their loved ones.

Mindly Approach to Counseling & Psychotherapy with Teenagers

[/custom_headline]

[text_output]

Per the wise words of Mary Poppins, “a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” While we consider therapy to be quite different from medicine, we believe Ms. Poppins was on to something.  Talking with a mental health professional and participating in counseling or psychotherapy might not exactly be a teenager’s cup of tea, so we need to find a way to deliver effective treatment that takes into consideration the picky preferences of teenagers. Give us a call to learn more about how we find a way to work with teenagers.
