Counseling for Teens
Being a teenager is difficult, plain and simple. During this time period, there is growth emotionally, mentally, and physically. Because of a process called individuation, teens often push their parents away and rely more on their peers. Parents often feel out of control and lost on how to reach their teen. You might be concerned if they are "normal" or not. You might see them struggling with school or friendships. They might have lost the motivation and enjoyment out of life. They seem to be wandering, and you are worried about who is influencing them. They get carried away with social media and have lost sight of their authentic identity. You might feel like you can't protect them.

Frequently Asked Questions
You have legal access to your child's health information, however, we ask for most information to be private to help build trust with your teenager. The exceptions to this are concerning safety. In cases of suicidality, homicidality, child abuse, and elder abuse, we will have to involve the necessary resources to keep your teen safe. Lydia answers this question more thoroughly in the video.
While working with your teen, we might suggest family sessions in order to communicate, problem-solve, and create a better connection. We will mediate any conflict and encourage vulnerability in order to be heard and understood. We may also suggest parent coaching sessions using the information we've gathered from your teen to give you more ideas on parenting them. Lydia answers this question more thoroughly in the video.
Seeing changes in your teen's behavior and mood is dependent on the problems presented, goals for therapy, the resistance to the therapeutic process, and the course of growth. Change takes time and consistent effort. Things with your teen may get worse before they get better, but any decline doesn't mean that counseling isn't working. Parental involvement and consistent attendance are closely tied with progress. I answer this question more thoroughly in the video.
A “clinical hour” is 50 minutes.
Research has shown that teen mental health counseling can be highly effective in managing mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression. It can improve the teenager's quality of life, relationships, and academic performance.
