Changes within the family or changed relationships hit adolescents particularly hard. Different from adults, adolescents cannot draw on positive solution strategies from their past.
What is important when working with adolescents is to form a working alliance with the child's parents or caregivers. To achieve positive changes, the child's environment is just as important as the work we do in therapy. Parents and family members should work on trying to understand the problem just as much as the child to be able to create a positive foundation for the therapy success.
Our therapies for adolescents focus on the following areas:
Divorce or separation
Learning challenges & school performance
Life can be full of problems, anxieties, dead-end situations, or just feels empty sometimes. During our individual counseling sessions, we can help you identify and understand your particular situation. Together, we can work on finding the courage to address your situation and initiate positive changes in your life. You can trust our professional counselors who have an excellent education and many years of experience.
