Counseling Can Help Your Teens Thrive
You can sleep peacefully knowing that your teenager is happy and doing well…
When your teen is struggling, your stress and worry can be all-consuming.
The world is sometimes not a friendly place for adolescents. The societal pressures can be enormous.
The pressures they face along with the normal physical changes of adolescence can cause stress and angst for teens and leave parents feeling helpless.
Recent studies have shown that rates of depression and anxiety for teens can be as high as 33%.
With these rates, it's not surprising that you're concerned about your teenagers.
Some things you may be saying:
My teen is anxious much of the time.
My child is sad, lonely, or depressed.
My daughter lacks confidence in herself.
"My daughter is' acting out" (e.g., not listening/being defiant or aggressive, stealing, or abusing substances)
My child has intense emotions, especially anger.
I'm concerned my teenager may have panic attack.
My teen has problems with her peers (e.g., doesn't fit in, is being bullied, hangs out with the 'wrong' crowd, etc.)
My daughter has experienced a traumatic event (e.g., been physically or emotionally assaulted).
I'm worried about the people my daughter dates.
Your teens can overcome her problems at home, at school, and with her peers…

It's important that your teenager is empowered to develop her own voice so that she develops self-trust and self-confidence.
However, if there is an issue that needs to addressing with you as her parent, we'll ask for your teen's cooperation first to respect her needs and privacy.
