Teenagers mature and develop at very different rates, so we offer a wide range of therapy options for them to try, including Play Therapy, talk therapy, or a mix.
It’s important for parents to realize therapy is a personal matter, even for your children, and that confidentiality applies to some extent.
We address several issues in our work, including:
- Social Skills
- Oppositional Defiant Disorder
We meet all of our clients where they’re beginning. We incorporate things that interest our teen clients into our therapy as they come up, so that we can develop a closer therapeutic relationship in which the good work can be done.
Therapy is not about complaining about your problems, or getting someone else’s solutions — it’s about learning to solve your own problems and feeling good about yourself while you do it. The work itself is always clinically-based. We work on changing the thoughts and thought processes that perpetuate anxiety or depression in your child’s world.
If your teen is interested in pursuing therapy, please give us a call at (845) 342-5789.
