Being a teenager is not easy. Parenting a teenager? Yeah, not easy either. Many times, choosing to begin counseling can be the answer to easing the tension at home and getting through a rough spot. Often, a teen experiences the pressure of life and feels unable to handle the stress and pressure in a healthy way. Your teen could also be clinically depressed or have an anxiety disorder.
Although you may be talking to your teenager, or at least trying to , a neutral person can help evaluate the situation, and work through issues in a non-threatening and confidential way that makes sense for everyone.
It is not uncommon for teens to feel overwhelmed by things. The pressures surrounding today's teens are tremendous. Teens often react to the pressures by making mistakes or bad choices. The result can be a downward spiral of emotions and behavior changes. Counseling can provide solutions that can change the course of their life, and yours. It is not a sign of failure. It's a sign that you are making a good health decision.
Karen, Michelle, Anna and Laurie very much enjoy working with the teen population and have a good rapport with local schools to help provide a collaborative effort to help your child, if needed.
