Psychotherapy for Adolescents, Teenagers and Young Adults

You’re looking for support for your child and you’ve come to the right place. You’ve probably tried a number of things and nothing has worked yet. Whether or not they’ll admit it you know that your child is struggling and could use support. Your child might tell you everything or nothing at all but they’re not the happy, carefree child they used to be.

You’ll do anything to make things better.

The transition from childhood to young adulthood can be stressful even in the best circumstances. The support of therapy during this critical period can make it easier to navigate the many developmental tasks facing your child and can mitigate the long term impacts of stressful life events. If your child is dealing with any of the following, therapy is a great next step:

  • anxiety,
  • depression,
  • strained family relationships,
  • friendship challenges,
  • difficulty in dating experiences,
  • trauma,
  • identity confusion,
  • disordered eating,
  • general withdrawal,
  • and just not feeling like themselves.

Even though you know that gradually pulling away from parents is developmentally appropriate as a child grows older, therapy offers you the comfort of knowing they’re getting guidance from a trusted adult. In fact, many parents contact me not because their child is in crisis, but so they have one additional support in their lives to help them thrive during their foundational years.

Getting support can only help. It’s helpful to have a place to step away from everything and look inward. There is no such thing as too much support and guidance and we know that the more children have the better they fare. Your child deserves as much support and guidance as they need to thrive. That’s what I want to help them do: thrive.

I work with adolescents and young adults with problems of all sorts, little and big. I believe solutions and healing often aren’t as far off as they might seem.

If you’re looking for support for your child I’d be honored to help. Let’s talk to see how therapy can help.
