Teens are often a group of people who would significantly benefit from therapy, but their parents often do not let them get the help they need. This could be due to a variety of reasons.
Maybe the parent does not recognize the teen needs help, maybe there is too much of a stigma about going to a therapist, or maybe the parent thinks the teen will “get over it.”
Getting help for your teenager is often the best thing you can do for him or her. This is the time that the body AND mind of a teenager are maturing while struggling to break out of an immature mind and body.
Therapy can help to get your teen on track and to help make it more likely that he or she will be successful in school, which will ultimately impact what career will be had, as well as his/her family and so on.
Does your teen need help? Here are a few things to watch out for:
- Angers easily
- Stressed all the time
- Appears very anxious
- Frequent arguments in the family
- Appears depressed
- They just aren’t themselves and you don’t know why
I am available to consult with a parent about their teen’s behavior. If there are problems with your teen, then we will make a plan of individual, family, and group…whichever combination is appropriate.
