Teens often face extreme pressure at school; friendship challenges & cliques, dating for the first time, experimenting with drugs & alcohol, academic/social perfectionism, or a hundred other stressors; all on top of the usual hormone changes. This can all result in anxiety, depression, withdrawal, boundary-pushing, and other behavioral challenges.
The Children’s Institute helps teenagers understand & confront their own behavior by addressing these challenges head on.
Therapy builds confidence & provides tools to give teens a sense of control & self-acceptance; coaching them to think about their lives from a new perspective helps teens discover their identity & build their self-esteem. Teen therapy can also be helpful to encourage a healthy, honest, close relationship with parents.
