Mental Health Care for Teens
Being a teenager in today’s day and age can be extremely stressful. On top of all of the expectations, social media can compound the issue. As your child navigates their teenage years, they are going to learn about themselves and the world around them, including what they are looking for in different friendships and relationships. During this time, friend groups often shift and may cause your teen to experience a lack of self-esteem, which can ultimately lead to a host of emotional difficulties.
Navigating their social lives, balancing school work and their own needs can start to feel overwhelming. When this happens, it is not uncommon for your teen to develop mood swings, anxiety, or depression. When teens experience these feelings, they can engage in risky behaviors such as experimenting with drugs, alcohol, and sex. As a parent, we know this can sound scary and overwhelming, but you are not alone and we have the tools to help.
We understand that your child’s teenage years are likely going to be difficult. Here at Mind Therapy, we are going to navigate this unfamiliar world and help your teen develop healthy new habits to help cope and manage some of these feelings they are experiencing. Through weekly therapy sessions, your teen is going to start to feel more empowered and confident to take control of their lives in a healthy and positive way. We will work with your family through individual, parent, and family therapy sessions to help gain back the balanced home life.
