Guiding Teenage Growth

Individual therapy

What To Expect

Adolescent psychotherapy is a specialized form of therapy that addresses the unique challenges and changes experienced during the transition from childhood to adulthood. This period, starting as early as 10 years old and lasting into the early 20s, is marked by significant physical, emotional, and social transformations.

Adolescents often struggle with a sense of vulnerability and emotional isolation as they work to separate from childhood attachments and form their own identities.

Is Adolescent Therapy Right For My Child?

Determining whether your adolescent needs psychotherapy can be challenging; however, certain signs may indicate a need for professional help.

  1. Behavior Changes: Sudden mood, behavior, or personality shifts; withdrawal; anger or aggression.
  2. Academic/Social Issues: Decline in school performance; friendship difficulties; isolation.
  3. Emotional Distress: Continuous sadness or hopelessness; unexplained crying; extreme mood swings.
  4. Physical Symptoms: Frequent unexplained headaches or stomachaches; sleep changes.
  5. Substance Use: Drug or alcohol experimentation or increased use.
  6. Trauma/Life Events: Trauma exposure; struggles with major life changes like divorce.
  7. Self-harm/Suicidal Thoughts: Self-harming actions; suicidal ideation.
  8. Eating Disturbances: Eating habit changes; body image concerns.
  9. Stress Coping: Difficulty managing stress or daily challenges.
