Online Therapy for Teenagers
Whether you are a teenager yourself or a loved one to a teen, we can all agree that while it can be exciting, it is also very difficult. Adolescence is often experienced as a time of change which can create uncertainty.
The teenage brain and body are undergoing a process of growth and development. In addition to internal changes, adolescence involves social and contextual pressures. Establishing an identity outside of the family unit is a huge part of any teen’s experience. As peer relationships become increasingly important, relationships within the family are impacted as teens face the social pressures to fit in with others as well as societal and academic pressures.
Therapy for teenagers aims to support teens with common struggles such as anxiety, depression, self-harm, suicidal ideation/attempts, eating disorders, bullying, body-image/confidence, social skills, identity development, and experimentation with drugs, sex, and alcohol.
Teen therapy can be a helpful outlet for teenagers as they navigate the challenging transition from childhood to adulthood. By exploring both the challenging and exciting elements of adolescence in therapy, we strive to draw upon each individuals strengths to facilitate resiliency in facing challenges.
While we encourage some form of family involvement in therapy, we understand the importance of individual therapy sessions for teenagers. Based on the nature of the concerns discussed in our online therapy sessions, it may be appropriate to have individual sessions, to include the family/a family member in the process or maintain a combination of both individual and family therapy sessions.
