Your latest argument with your teen leaves you feeling frustrated and angry. Your once sweet little angel has become a depressed, anxious, or rebellious teenager overnight. Despite your best parenting advice, your teen is making poor choices which leaves you worried about their future.  The warning signs are flashing before you: declining grades, extreme irritable mood swings, increasing isolation from the family, loss of interests in their hobbies, lack of motivation, spending excessive time alone, etc. You're concerned about possible substance abuse or self harm behavior.   You're at your wit's end and don't know what to do.  

It's difficult to see your teen shutting you out instead of coming to you for help about their struggles.


If you are feeling concerned about your teenager’s behavior or emotions, please give us a call.  

Our Approach

We know you want the best for your child, and it can be extremely difficult to take the first step toward getting outside help. Know that our  therapists  share the same passion in seeing your child not only move beyond what’s holding them back but also gain life skills they can use to succeed in the future. Our therapists can provide guidance and knowledge to help teens overcome a wide range of mental and emotional struggles.

We CAN help with:

  • Anxiety & Depression

  • Self-esteem

  • Emotional Regulation

  • Issues related to dating relationships

  • Identity formation

  • Anger

  • Effects from Divorce 

  • Parent relationship concerns

  • Academic struggles

We'll welcome your teen with a safe space where they can express their inner thoughts and feelings without fear of judgement or disapproval.


They'll learn tools on how to:


  • handle life's stressors and their intense emotions.

  • change their negative thoughts and negative self talk. 

  • how to communicate their needs in ways that you and others can hear them — instead of screaming or shutting down.

  • set boundaries with themselves and their peers

  • recognize healthy vs. unhealthy relationships.

Our therapists focus on families in our therapy with teens. We view families as tight systems–when one member of the family is struggling, everyone is struggling. What this translates to in our practice is that we don’t just work with teens in isolation.  

Parents, you are an important part of your teen’s therapy


While you might not always be physically present in the therapy session, your support matters and we will be in communication as much as you, your teen, and their therapist decides is appropriate. There will be certain sessions where we'll meet with you and your teen to give everyone a chance to have a voice and to give your family a chance to practice different ways of interacting with each other. In family sessions, we want to create something positive and meaningful in our time together so you can have a stronger relationship with your teen built on mutual understanding and respect.
