Helping Teens Move Forward with Confidence and Optimism

The adolescent and teen years have always been an especially challenging time, for both parents and their children. That’s truer today than ever. But it doesn’t have to be this way!

Of course, adolescents and teens have always had to deal with trying to figure out who they are and who they want to be, while simultaneously coping with the mental, physical and emotional changes, increasing responsibilities, and new family and societal pressures that come with this time of life.

However, those issues are now compounded by a digital world that exposes our children to inappropriate websites, cyber-bullying, sexual activity, drugs, and alcohol at increasingly younger ages. And then there’s everything else going on in the world: regional conflicts, global pandemics, you name it.

No wonder our teens are stressed!

And it’s not any easier for parents.

All of these issues occur at a time in our children’s lives when they typically individuate and withdraw from parents. While this emotional separation may be a normal and natural phase of life, it doesn’t help when you’re trying to connect with your child and help them work through whatever problems they’re facing.

Whether you’re a teen who feels like nobody really understands what you’re going through, or a parent who feels like the relationship you once had with your child is slipping away before your eyes, you’re far from alone.

We get it. And counseling and therapy can help!

How Teen Counseling & Therapy Can Help

Teens and parents can work through a lot of issues on their own simply by communicating openly and honestly and being patient with each other. But that’s often easier said than done.

And teens often face difficulties that they’re either not comfortable sharing with their parents or that parents’ are unable to help navigate, such as:

  • Social and peer pressure, harassment, bullying or cyberbullying;
  • Anger management issues;
  • Anxiety, depression, or other mood disorders;
  • ADHD or learning disorders;
  • Coping with parental separation or divorce;
  • Grief and loss resulting from a serious illness or death in the family, the loss of a friend, or even the loss of friends that comes with a long-distance relocation;
  • Sexual identity and orientation concerns;
  • Substance abuse or other addictive behaviors;
  • Eating disorders or body image issues;
  • Refusing to go to school;
  • Procrastination or low self-esteem; and
  • Figuring out who they are and finding the right balance between being a part of your family and finding their own way in the world.

These are just some of the challenges counseling and therapy can help your child work through and resolve.

In fact, talking to a professional counselor or teen therapist can help almost any teen at some point, if only by providing a fresh perspective and some help assessing the problems they’re facing.

But teen counseling and therapy are about much more than your adolescent or teen having a nonjudgmental space in which to share their feelings.

The most serious issues occur when adolescents and teens hold unhelpful thoughts or beliefs that leave them feeling unworthy or alone.

And these feelings are what lead kids to turn to problematic behaviors in an attempt to self-soothe and regain a sense of control.

Accordingly, we use a wide variety of therapeutic techniques – including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and mindfulness techniques – to help your child understand why they think, feel, and behave the way they do, so they can not only develop healthier coping skills but also feel more comfortable and confident about who they are!

“My therapist was actually really cool and got where I was coming from. They didn’t make me feel weird or anything; it was more like chatting with someone who genuinely wanted to understand me. I learned a lot about myself, like how to deal with all the stress and pressure without bottling it up.”

Is One of Our Therapists the Best Teen Therapist for You?

More than any specific skill or technique, the most important ingredient in teen counseling and therapy is the relationship that’s developed between the teen or adolescent and their therapist.

After all, if your teen doesn’t feel comfortable being open and honest with their therapist, they’ll find it next to impossible to do the work necessary to heal and grow.

Of course, we’re all unique individuals with our own personality and needs. This is just as true for teens as it is for adults.

This means that no one therapist is the right or best therapist for every teen.

Fortunately, Therapy for Every Body isn’t just one therapist!

As an inclusive group of adolescent counselors and teen therapists, there’s a good chance that one of our clinicians will be a great fit for your child and you.

That being said, adolescent and teen counseling is all about helping your child.

If you, as a parent, need help and support, we provide parent counseling and coaching, as well.
