Adolescents in therapy get an opportunity to grow into the best version of themselves. Therapy tends to focus on fully understanding the teen’s world and its barriers. Oftentimes, teens are limited in their language to express their concerns.
Therapy can be a great space to teach communication of feelings, work on problem-solving skills, and collaborate with parents to equip them with skills needed to help their teens.
What brings teens to therapy?
Teen Therapy Benefits
The teenage years are full of challenges for teens and stressful for their parents. Nowadays, teens face many new pressures, such as toxic social media exposure, early experimentation with drugs and alcohol, and unhealthy peer pressure. But, also, some struggles teens face are a normal part of growing up. At times, teens and their families may need extra support and guidance to help them navigate through any challenges.
Teen therapy is a space for teens to express their thoughts and feelings and learn new coping skills to communicate better, learn emotional regulation, and create new strategies to adjust to changes. Keeping a teenager engaged and talking is a primary goal of development. If your teen has not been sharing their thought and feelings with you, it may be a sign that they need to talk to someone other than their parents. Often therapy provides teens with an unbiased arena to vent their frustration and learn new strategies to manage their problems. Our goal is to come alongside you and help your teen feel empowered to be their best self.
