Adolescent Counseling

A safe place for adolescents to grow into their best selves

Counseling for adolescents is an underutilized approach to helping teens grow into the best version of themselves.

It’s helped improve communication and develop happy, healthy relationships for thousands of stressed and busy New York teens and their parents.

If your child is struggling with social pressure, school or work challenges, addiction, or body issues, a qualified therapist can help bring clarity and peace of mind to your troubled teen.

Mental health issues among teens are on the rise

Declining mental health can dramatically impact a teen’s physical health, relationships, and performance at school, and worse, lead to suicide.

Teens are more stressed than ever, and suicide among adolescents is on the rise. It ranked as the second-leading cause of death for that age group in 2017.

Despite that, their problems are often disregarded, and they’re told to “get over it.”

Adolescents, and their parents, often seek counseling for one or more of these reasons:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Social pressure
  • Body issues
  • Trouble handling a divorce
  • A big move or life event
  • Communication issues
  • Distracted– issues focusing at school and home
  • Drug and alcohol abuse
  • Cutting school
  • Aggressive or volatile behavior

Whatever the reason, counseling can provide a safe space and feeling of support to grow and work through issues.
