Adolescent Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy for Adolescents

Working with adolescents is a special world all its own. These amazing individuals are not children, nor are they adults; they’re in a transforming growth period where they’re leaving the dependency of childhood behind and embracing self-reliance.  It can be a painful time of life, but it doesn’t have to be.

During these years, adolescents are learning to make decisions and to decide which values they will embrace.  It’s a fluid time when values fluctuate from week to week, but it’s a very real process and needs to be appreciated.

In my practice, I work with adolescents who have:

  • anxiety
  • low self esteem
  • depression
  • anger and defiant disorders
  • developmental delays
  • grief and traumatic experiences
  • relationship issues with peers and family members
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • bullying
  • victims of bullying
  • eating disorders
With all their pressures, adolescents may become  isolated, alienated, and feel disillusioned.  As a psychotherapist I can help your son or daughter work through these difficult times and transitions.
Call for an appointment and we’ll discuss a treatment plan for your adolescent.  There really is hope.
