This is How We Help Teens & Their Parents 

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

Older teens are at a perfect place emotionally and developmentally for counseling to really have a lasting impact. Having an outside voice to talk to and validate feelings and thoughts can make the world of difference. Teens come to therapy for a variety of reasons including; relationship issues, school anxiety, social anxiety, body image issues, family issues, career advice, and depression.

FAMILY COUNSELING

Breakdowns in communication between teens and their parents are so common. Family counseling often helps to open the door of communication again and move the relationships into a new phase. Issues such as going through a rough divorce, sibling rivalry, blended families and parent-child fighting can be addressed.
