Setting Your Child Up For Success

Is Therapy Right For Your Teen?

As a teen and adolescent therapist, I know that therapy can be incredibly beneficial for teenagers struggling with stress, anxiety, or depression. I understand that on a daily basis adolescents have to face a wide variety of issues, pressures, and difficult or confusing emotions. Often what is most needed is a safe space where they can sort through these feelings without fear of judgement or ridicule. This is precisely what I strive to offer in my practice. Before diving into therapy, it is important that all parties determine whether or not I am the right therapist for your teen. During our first session, my goal is to gain an understanding of what challenges your teen is facing and determine whether or I am a good fit for him or her.parent with coffee

Helping your child get start in therapy is just one part of the solution. There are additional ways in which you can set your teen up for success via your general approach to communication. The following suggestions can help promote a teen who is both self-aware and resilient.
