We are excited to announce that we are now offering our services to teen clients. Adolescence can be a challenging time for many young people, as they navigate their way through a range of physical, emotional, and social changes. We recognize that these changes can be difficult to manage, and that it's common for teens to experience feelings of stress, anxiety, and depression during this time.
We believe that therapy can be a valuable tool for helping teens to navigate these challenges, develop coping skills, and build resilience. Our approach is client-centered, which means that we work collaboratively with each individual to understand their unique needs and goals. We create a safe, non-judgmental space where teens can explore their thoughts and feelings, develop a deeper understanding of themselves, navigate the challenges of life, and develop the skills they need to thrive.
If you're a teen who is struggling with the challenges of adolescence, we invite you to explore the benefits of therapy. Our team of therapists is here to support you, and we look forward to helping you on your journey toward greater health and wellbeing.
There are several mental health issues that are commonly experienced by teenagers. The top 5 teen mental health issues are:
Anxiety disorders: Teens can experience various types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. These disorders can cause excessive and irrational worry, fear, and avoidance behaviors that can significantly impact daily life.
Depression: Depression is a common mental health issue among teens that can affect their mood, thoughts, and behavior. It can cause feelings of sadness, hopelessness, worthlessness, and loss of interest in activities they used to enjoy. In severe cases, depression can lead to self-harm or suicide.
Eating disorders: Eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder, are prevalent among teenagers, particularly girls. They are characterized by distorted eating behaviors, negative body image, and an obsession with weight and food intake.
Substance abuse: Substance abuse and addiction are significant problems among teenagers. Many teens experiment with drugs and alcohol, which can lead to addiction, physical and mental health problems, and legal issues.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD): ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects attention, impulse control, and hyperactivity. It can cause difficulty in school, work, and social situations and can lead to low self-esteem and other mental health problems if left untreated.
We do not accept insurance for teen therapy services. However, as a non-profit organization and a training facility for pre-licensed counselors, we are committed to making mental health services accessible to everyone who needs them. We offer low-cost therapy for teens through a donation-based system. This means that we do not have a set fee for our services, but rather ask our clients to make a contribution that they can afford. Our goal is to provide high-quality therapy to all teens, regardless of their financial situation. We believe that everyone deserves access to mental health services, and we are dedicated to making that a reality. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please don't hesitate to contact us.
