Ages 14-17 years

Adolescent years can be a difficult time for the individual as well as their family. Like adults, adolescents can struggle with life transitions, mental health, and substance abuse. Therapy geared for an adolescent's needs is an effective way to address these struggles while taking some of the pressure off of the family system. Adolescent treatment focuses on both the individual as well as their family system, integrating both individual and family sessions. These sessions are used to help adolescents and their families overcome confusion about their experiences and difficult issues, improve communication, establish healthy identities, and create a sense of reasonable control.
