It breaks your heart to see your teen struggling as they try to figure out their place in this ever-changing world.

It’s a vulnerable time for them as they are trying to navigate social pressures, relationships, self-image, academic success, intense emotions and so much more. You want to be there for them but they won’t let you in and even if they did, you aren’t quite sure how to help.

Our Approach

We work with parents to create a holistic and integrated approach to your teens well-being. We know parenting has unique challenges and we want to help you overcome those.

 

We help teens by providing a supportive and safe environment where they feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and emotions. It is our primary goal to build them up, empower them and foster a sense of self-efficacy and self-compassion.

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”

How it Works

Step 1

Let’s begin with a free 15-minute consultation. This gives you an opportunity to chat with your therapist before you decide to schedule. During this call, they will have the chance to find out more about your teen and their needs and to see if they are the right fit.

Step 2

Once we both decide we are a good fit, your therapist will schedule the first session in which they will meet with the parents. During this session they will discuss the things that prompted you to seek therapy for your teen and how you would like for them to benefit from therapy. They will also gather history about your child, family dynamics and significant events in their life. This helps them to understand your child from your perspective and to have a more integrated approach to their growth and healing. In this session, they will also provide support and feedback as to how you can best support them in this process.

Step 3

Your therapist will then start meeting with your teen, building a trusting and therapeutic relationship. They will help them understand themselves and their emotions as well as how to express and cope with them. By utilizing therapeutic techniques and interventions that resonate with them, your therapist will facilitate self-expression and exploration. Through this process, your teen will grow more confident in themselves and their ability to cope with life’s challenges. Depending on your child’s needs, there may be a combination of individual and family sessions.
