Adolescent Issues: How We Can Help
Adolescence is a time of immense discovery, growth, and change. We also know that with these changes also come issues and concerns. From eating disorders to bullying, teens deal with a variety of issues as they continue to mature and come into their own. You may be wondering if your teen could benefit from therapy. If so, you’ve come to the right place.
When Teens Benefit from Counseling
There are many reasons teens come to us for therapy and they don’t necessarily need to be dealing with mental health problems or traumatic experiences in order to benefit. In fact, early therapeutic interventions with a licensed clinical mental health professional can actually help your teen develop healthier thoughts and coping strategies to prevent issues in the first place.
What Teen Counseling Can Offer
We work with teens dealing with a wide range of issues. Some of the most common issues include,
- Eating disorders
- Substance abuse issues
- Traumatic events
- Self-esteem issues
- Social or school issues
How Therapy Benefits All Assets of Your Teen’s Life
Teens who are living with chronic health problems or disabilities, teens who are questioning their gender or sexual identity, as well as teens dealing with discrimination can also benefit from turning to our counselors here at TMG. We understand that being a teen these days comes with so many challenges, particularly with the increase in social media. While it might just seem like a rite of passage to experience self-doubt and self-esteem issues, we find that many teens can overcome these challenges more easily when they have a counselor that can guide them through it and provide them with more effective strategies for coping and improving their wellbeing and quality of life.
Establishing a Trusting Relationship
Here at TMG, we take our jobs seriously. We understand the unique challenges that adolescents face and we work hard to establish an open, trusting relationship with every teen that walks through our doors. We believe a healthy teen experience is possible, and by nurturing and supporting them we can help them mature into healthy adults.
