Teen Therapy Helps
If your teen is troubled, you might feel like nothing will ever help, but that’s not true.
We speak teen, and we’ve helped many families just like yours feel great again, even during the tricky teen years.
As a parent it’s difficult to watch your child struggle at any age, but it can be even more difficult in the teen years. Adolescence often brings with it strong emotions and struggles with more complex problems than the childhood years.
You want to help, but feel frustrated when your teen won’t open up to you. Therapy is a great option for teens to have a safe place to explore feelings, their identity, and relationships.
We help teens who are lacking confidence, feel sad or withdrawn, feel worried or stressed, struggle with sexual orientation (LGBTQ) or gender issues, have academic problems or are going through family changes such as divorce. Therapy can especially important for teens that are showing dangerous behaviors such as drinking or using mood-altering drugs, causing self-harm, or have an eating disorder.
Benefits of Teen Therapy
Therapy is a great way to support your teen during these important years of growth when they are most impressionable. They don’t always feel comfortable talking to mom and dad but are often more open to the idea of talking to a therapist.
Therapy can help your teen become more confident, make better decisions, and feel more hopeful and optimistic. It can even help your teen feel more connected to peers and family. It’s also a great way to help them learn to problem solve on their own and figure out who they are as a person.
Teenagers are quite comfortable being online, so consider online therapy as an option for them. Our online therapy platform is HIPPAA compliant and easy to access. All you need is a strong internet connection, a phone or computer, and a private space to talk.
Teens will be able to connect with us from their favorite chair, their desk, or even from bed at a time that works best for them.
Online therapy has been found to be just as effective as in-person therapy and it’s a great way to encourage and make your teen feel more comfortable with the idea of giving therapy a try.
