There are many reasons people come into our office. Some people are experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety or other mental health issues that are interfering in their ability to function well in their day to day lives. While others come in because they have work-stress or family problems and don’t know where to begin or how to sort things out. There are various factors that contribute to anyone feeling stuck or overwhelmed. Whatever has brought you here, we will work together to identify how you define progress and success and determine what obstacles are in your way. We use evidenced based approaches to mental health in order to effectively help you find your way to healing, transformation and positive change. We work with individuals (adults, teens and children) and families in counseling and we are here to help!
Teens face a unique and exciting developmental milestone that brings with it many challenges for them to manage, and for parents to help them with. Teens’ worldview is changing, their interest in the ideas of peers and the world-at-large are growing as they are beginning a process of “individuation.” Individuation is a process that involves organizing, shaping and reshaping ideas about identify, values, and interest. At the same time teens are becoming very invested in finding their place in the social structure of peer groups around them. The challenges of this stage of development, coupled with hormonal and biological changes, adversity from the past and present can make this period of time really hard for teens to navigate.
Whatever your teen is struggling with, we are happy to help! We LOVE working with teens and are invested in supporting and helping them to overcome the many challenges they face. From managing emotions, to managing interpersonal or family relationships, to managing school pressures or peer pressures, to dealing with impulsive behaviors or feelings of being overwhelmed, to struggles with self-esteem and self-confidence, we are here to help!
We provide a non judgement and supportive space for teens to explore the challenges they are facing and learn effective stragtegies to cope.
