Students face a lot of difficulties. First, there is pressure to perform well academically. Second, there is navigating peer relationships. Third, there are the joys and pitfalls of self-discovery. Common difficulties teens experience include stress, anxiety, depression, problems with peers, and problems with family. Being a teenager is complicated!
That’s where I come in.
In my extensive work delivering therapy to students at a high school, I have worked effectively with students facing a number of difficulties. I can help you (or your teen), too!
According to applicable law, I assess on a case-by-case basis if teens and preteens are capable of understanding the ins and outs of consenting to psychotherapy. If so, they may choose to consent to receiving my services independent of parents/guardians. In support of a positive experience, youth should voluntarily and willingly access services.
While it is important that young people are empowered to either willingly consent to treatment or not, I understand that parents/guardians may struggle to help their teens or preteens help themselves. Parents/guardians may book an appointment to consult with me. In any case, sometimes parents/guardians can benefit from learning how to better cope with the difficulties they face with the young person in their lives.
