Adolescent Counseling

 

 

The social and emotional changes that occur during the adolescent years can be exciting while also providing unfamiliar challenges. Roles and responsibilities change, often producing a shift in the entire familial system. A growing youth can result in parental confusion and discord as adolescents begin to learn new roles in the community and among peers. Counseling can provide a place for a young person to understand aspects of themselves and how they fit into the society around them. Youth and adolescent counseling for ages 12 – 18  helps navigate the transition from childhood into adulthood, and explores issues such as:

 

Bullying | School & Social Pressure |  Identity Transition | Coming of Age | Grief and Loss | Depression | Managing Stress | Self-Esteem Building

Group Counseling

 

 

Groups can be an effective way to work through issues. In a group one may discover that they are not alone and that others share similar concerns. Groups offer a place to give and receive support, help you find your voice and relate to others. The following groups are offered at the practice:

 

Women’s Issues: In this group, we will explore a wide range of topics, from being single and dating to married and managing it all. Other matters include anxiety and depression, and how that impacts the different hats we wear.

 

Grief/Loss: Losing a loved one is difficult and emotionally draining, often taking a significant amount of time before gaining clarity and peace. This group is geared toward helping people to mourn and begin to heal in their own way.

 

Building Self-Confidence: This group is open to anyone who is struggling with self-esteem issues and wants to make a change toward confidence and independence. The group will focus on increasing self-assurance and interpersonal growth in a safe and caring environment.
