Teen Therapy

Understanding Teen Challenges

Teens face various life struggles, often without prior experience and before achieving full independence. At PsychSolutions, our teen therapists help teens navigate these challenges while supporting the crucial relationships in their lives, including family, parents, and friends.

Our goal is to meet teens' personal objectives while enhancing their overall support system and relationships.

Key Features of Teen Counseling

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy sessions, teens identify key goals to work on. These sessions delve into the underlying factors of their concerns, increasing their awareness of influences on their situations and responses. This process fosters greater self-awareness and personal growth.

Family Therapy

Incorporating family into the treatment plan leads to the best outcomes. It is challenging to implement changes and practice new strategies if family members have different goals or are not aligned. Family therapy ensures everyone is on the same page, facilitating cohesive support for the teen.

Parent Consultations

Parents often recognize their teen's struggles and wish to provide support, though they may face their own challenges. Even when parents see the need for professional help, teens might not feel ready to engage with a therapist. Our therapists support parents by:

  • Explaining child and teen development and its impact on behavior and family dynamics.
  • Teaching parents how to engage with their teens effectively while remaining emotionally regulated.

By supporting parents, we bring about positive changes within the family system, enhancing the overall well-being of the teen.

Coordinated Care

At PsychSolutions, we prioritize connecting with and coordinating treatment among all professionals involved in your teen's care. With your consent and that of your teen, we can send updates to other therapists or medical professionals to ensure a cohesive and comprehensive treatment approach. This collaborative effort helps to provide the best possible support for your teen's well-being.
