What is Teen Counseling?
Teenagers may often feel like they are stuck in an uncomfortable position between childhood and young adulthood. During adolescence, emotions run high; and it can be difficult to handle the rush of feelings and thoughts that have never come up before. Many people have their first experience with anxiety and depression as teenagers. Sometimes, adults write off adolescents’ feelings as “just being a teenager”; but their emotions and thoughts should be respected and taken seriously. Adolescent counseling helps teenagers build confidence, learn life skills, and adopt healthy habits that will carry them into young adulthood. Therapy can also be pivotal in resolving many of the common problems teenagers face including substance abuse, family conflict, bullying, peer pressure, and academic struggles.
Is Adolescent Counseling right for my teen?
Counseling for teens can address many common problems including mood swings or low mood, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, substance abuse, behavioral changes, school problems, disrespect and defiance, insomnia, loss of interest in activities, changes in personality, grief, and loss, self-injury, trauma, stress management, and ADD/ADHD.
If you’re noticing your teen is struggling with these signs or symptoms, then it may be time to consider teen counseling.
The Well House’s approach to counseling for teens
Our specialized approach helps teens make sense of their thoughts amid these rapid changes, feel more empowered, and establish hope. We also work with parents to assist them as they learn how to appropriately support and parent their child through this adolescent period. If you have been struggling to connect with your teenager, teen counseling can help. You may feel like they’ve completely shut you out, or they could be exhibiting behaviors that deeply concern you and drive a wedge between the family. Counseling can help families reunite and heal while learning to respect and understand one another more.
Helpful information for teens
As a teenager, you may feel out-of-place and unsure of who you are. There are many things you might want to do or dream of, but going after them and achieving your goals is scary. You aren’t a child anymore, but you aren’t really an adult either. You are somewhere in between. Anxiety and stress are realities for many of us; and with all the responsibilities and expectations, it can be a lot to manage. Teen counseling can help you make sense of your thoughts and deepen your understanding of who you are. A teen counseling session is a judgment-free zone where you can
speak your truth and find support for your goals. Whether you are looking for help with anxiety or trying to find ways to better communicate with parents, we are here to support you.
