Changing hormones, academic requirements, extracurricular activities, family dynamics, peer pressure, and a rapidly evolving sense of self can all place overwhelming stress on your teenager. With support from our therapists, your teen can have a safe space to process all of these things.
While your teen’s body may have finished growing in size, their brain does not mature until their mid- to late 20’s. The rapid and constant changes in their brains, along with the physical, emotional, and social challenges of navigating this period in life, make teens more susceptible to mental health problems than adults.
Simply put, teens have a lot to deal with, and their coping mechanisms aren’t always healthy!
If your teenager is struggling with their mental health, finding a counselor for them can make all the difference. Our professional therapists are experienced in working with adolescents and will know how to make your child feel comfortable and safe to express themselves.
A therapist can also be a useful ally to help discern if your teen needs medication or is at risk of hurting themselves.
If you’ve noticed any of these changes in your teen, please reach out to us. We’ll help you develop a support system that best serves your teen and family.
