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.
