Your teen may benefit from talking to an unbiased, trusted adult. In therapy, I can help your teen talk about what’s bothering him/her, identify possible solutions, and develop coping strategies to deal with difficult emotions. I will work with your teen to build self-esteem, increase communication skills, and gain self-confidence. Also, I will work with your teen to identify and develop healthy and fulfilling relationships with peers and families.

Seems withdrawn
Has difficult fitting in with peers
Reports dropping grades in school
Is experiencing anxiety or depression
Worries about his/her weight or appearance
Turns to alcohol or drugs to cope with emotions
Turns to romantic relationships for reassurance

Psychotherapy can help
