Counseling and Psychotherapy for Teenagers

Counseling and psychotherapy for teenagers includes providing therapy for teen problems, child parent psychotherapy, as well as family counseling and parenting support. Our psychotherapists and counselors have years of experience providing counseling and psychotherapy for teenagers to help kids, parents and families navigate the challenges they are facing. You will find us to be not only knowledgeable and experienced, but authentic and genuine in our approach to meeting the needs you, your child and your family have.¬†Family life and parenting are challenging enough, so it is important to us that when you come in you feel comfortable and “at home”.

We use such approaches as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma informed therapy, play therapy, family systems and attachment theory and the latest research in neuroscience to provide counseling and psychotherapy for teens, and family counseling to make parents and kids feel better about themselves and their relationships with one another. We get how vital parent-child relationships are to everyone’s well-being, as well as an understanding of child development and the needs of parents and kids. This knowledge helps us create a space where kids and parents feel safe to explore what is working and what is not in their lives, in their homes and with their family. We offer practical strategies, including those to increase empathy and connection, so that you, your teen and your family are a place where members nurture, support and thrive.
