Individual Therapy for Teens

and Young Adults

Teenagers and young adults face many challenges in today’s world due to academic, social, parental, and societal pressures. Although everyone encounters times when they feel badly, if your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are negatively impacting your quality of life, this could be a sign of a mental health issue. Psychotherapy with a qualified professional provides teens with a safe place to identify, express and explore personal challenges, identity/sexuality questions, social issues/pressures, personality attributes and family relationships.

  • Changes in eating and sleeping habits

  • Social challenges

  • Changes in grades

  • Feeling alone, lonely or like you don’t fit in
