teen Therapist in waheaton
Teens in therapy have a chance to become the best version of themselves. Therapy concentrates on truly understanding the teen’s world and the obstacles they face. Many times, teens struggle to express their concerns in words.
Therapy can provide a supportive environment to teach how to communicate feelings, improve problem-solving abilities, and work together with parents to give them the skills they need to support their teens.
What brings teens to therapy?
Teen Therapy Benefits
The teenage years can be tough for teens and stressful for their parents. Today, teens encounter various new pressures, like exposure to negative influences on social media, early experimentation with drugs and alcohol, and unhealthy peer pressure. However, some challenges teens face are a normal part of growing up. Sometimes, teens and their families may need extra support and guidance to help them navigate these challenges.
Teen therapy is a safe space for teens to share their thoughts and feelings and to learn new coping skills for better communication, emotional regulation, and adapting to changes. Encouraging a teenager to engage and communicate is an important part of their development. If your teen hasn’t been opening up to you, it could be a sign that they need to talk to someone other than their parents. Therapy often offers teens a neutral place to express their frustrations and acquire new strategies to deal with their issues.
Our goal is to stand beside you and help your teen feel empowered to be the best version of themselves.
