Teenage Counseling

Counseling and Mentoring

As we get to know your teen and understand your family’s needs, we provide counseling, direction, and useful recommendations. We assess your teen’s level of functioning in four major areas:

Education/Career – We look at a teen’s grades, job experience, goals, and family expectations. Depending on where they are in the process, we counsel teens to adjust to high school, find jobs or volunteer work, and prepare for college.

Social Relationships – We address all relationships and how they are supporting a teen’s success and self-esteem. We counsel teens to create healthy friendships with trustworthy peers. We ensure that peer influence is balanced with the needs of the family.

Family Life – We are interested in the impact of the teen’s behavior on the family and vice-versa. We also explore the teen’s and family’s strengths, hopes, expectations, and values. We find where relationships can be strengthened to bring the family together.

Emotional Well-Being – We thoroughly assess your teen’s emotional and psychological state so that the source of their challenges can be directly addressed. Youth often isolate, act out or make poor decisions due to anxiety, depression, substance abuse or eating disorders.
