The middle and high school years are essential as adolescents begin to form their own unique identity. This stage is new and often difficult for both the teen and parent. Adolescent counseling provides a safe place for the teen, parents, and family to discover new patterns and tools.
We believe that it is important for teens to see a counselor who specializes in adolescent therapy, someone who understands the teenage mind and the unique struggles they face
There are many emotional strains affecting teens that are often best addressed in a safe, confidential counseling environment. Teens today face extraordinary pressure during their developmental stages than ever before. Issues like anxiety, depression, irritability, peer relationships, and addictive and dangerous patterns can be addressed with care.
The teen therapists at Hedman Counseling Center know the importance of involving the family in teen counseling, when it’s appropriate. Because of this, we have family therapists on staff to assist. We would be honored to walk with your teen and support you in the process.
Teen counseling can be a preventative measure or as an intervention on concerns that already exist. Some of the areas our teen therapists can assist in are:
- Behavioral concerns
- Power struggles
- Sleeping problems
- Substance abuse
- Social skills
- Peer relationship
- Blended families
- Sibling strife
- Coping skills
