YOUTH & TEENAGE COUNSELING
Youth benefit from having someone outside their family and friendship circles to explore and process their thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
As children and adolescents grow, they are constantly in the process of developing the social skills and emotional intelligence necessary to lead healthy, happy lives. When children experience emotions or engage in behaviors that interfere with their happiness and ability to thrive, they may benefit from meeting with a therapist.
In teenage years, relationships with peers and academic performance become increasingly important. Additionally, teens begin to display a wider and more complex range of emotions. This is a time when problems or disappointment in academic and social settings may lead to mental health conditions such as depression or anxiety. As academic and social tasks become more demanding, conditions such as attention-deficit hyperactivity and oppositional behavior may interfere.
