Therapy with teens
At Fuller Life, we recognize the transition between childhood and adulthood is full of challenges. Parents often feel lost about how to help their child in the midst of today’s changing youth. Teens feel alone, yet simultaneously desire independence as they navigate their developing identity amidst changing bodies, emotions and fears.
At Fuller Life, we understand issues common for adolescents and how families can work best to come together to chart the best course possible. Some of the things we can help kids and their parents navigate include any number of situations from family difficulties, anxiety, depression, peer pressure at school, eating disorders, cutting behaviors, drug or alcohol use, school issues, abuse, mental illness, sexual activity, or other stressful situations.
Adolescent and family counseling can help rebuild trust in families, teach effective communication and help to transition the relationships from parent to child toward being adult parent to adult child. Additionally, through proven strategies and interventions, adolescents can learn how to deal with emotions more effectively, identify unhelpful thinking patterns, choose new ways of thought that encourage self-respect and positive choices, and learn to eliminate self-destructive or inappropriate behaviors.
At Fuller Life, we love working with teenagers and are here to help.
