HOW DO OUR TEEN THERAPISTS IN TAMPA HELP ADOLESCENTS?
We help teens identify their values and goals for their life, and guide them in identifying unhealthy and unhelpful patterns that get in the way of attaining their goals and aren’t aligned with their values.
We assist them in learning language to describe what they are feeling and their experiences so they are able to communicate their needs and struggles more effectively.
We teach teens ways of coping with anxiety, depression, feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, helplessness that are helpful to them based on how they work individually and with others.
We help teens who struggle with thoughts of suicide find meaning and connection to life and those who struggle with or use alcohol or drugs to manage their triggers for using, learning to cope in a more effective, healthy way.
WE PROVIDE TEEN THERAPY BOTH INDIVIDUALLY AND AS A FAMILY, DEPENDING ON THE TEEN AND FAMILIES NEEDS AND GOALS.
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.
