Do You Feel You Teen Needs Therapy?

The teen years are a time of exploration, independence and turmoil. They can be moody without reason at times or feel like the burden of all their adult responsibilities weigh them down as they navigate new terrain in an unfamiliar world.

Teens are on the precipice of adulthood, where they have more insight into their thoughts and emotions. However, they still struggle with problem-solving, reigning in their behavior, understanding the consequences of their actions, and asking for guidance instead of acting on their own.

I Can Help You Find The Patience And Compassion You Need

Teenagers need someone who gets them. A therapist needs to be there for the teen in therapy, just like a friend would be – somebody they can trust and not feel judged by when it comes time that their guard is down and secrets are told. Adolescents are open to new ideas and viewpoints when they feel most vulnerable. New City is a small town but it doesn’t mean that everything is easy.

We believe that it is important to be open-minded and understanding with teens. We know they may not feel like there’s a problem, but rushing them will only make the situation worse. With years of experience, Courageous Kids Counseling knows what steps and practices to take and what not to take.

Therapy is a way for teenagers to explore their feelings and concerns in order to learn more about themselves. It can be difficult at first, but when you are open with your therapist, they will help guide the process as it unfolds over time so that learning becomes easier on both sides of an interview or conversation together.
