Adolescent Mental Health
Rapid physical, emotional, and social changes experienced by adolescents can make them vulnerable to emotional dysregulation and mental health challenges. We help teens create their own blueprint for health and wellness.
We utilize therapeutic approaches that have been adapted for use with adolescents and are supported by scientific research. These modalities include, but are not limited to, dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment based therapy, and psychodynamic approaches. For more information about these therapies, please look under their respective headings on our Treatment Approaches pages.
We understand that adults are not the only ones who could use extra support. Children and adolescents often experience distressing feelings and are vulnerable to stress, depression and anxiety. They often feel confused and isolated, even though they have loving parents and family who want to help them. Our time in sessions with children and adolescents focuses not only on how to best process their emotions and struggles and cope with distress, but also on encouraging, preparing, and supporting them so that they can feel safe and empowered to share those issues with other people, such as their parents, who can help them outside of the therapy sessions.
