Teen Therapy

Teen Therapy

Adolescence can be a turbulent time. Changes in their bodies can combine with different or increased social and cultural changes to disorient teens. Often, they work their way through the challenges on their own. Often, having a trained listener and counselor can help them to navigate with less frustration, in less time, and with fewer ramifications for family members and the teens themselves.

Your Teen’s Mental Health

You might note that your teen is experiencing social anxiety, have lost interest in things they previously enjoyed, is withdrawn, or has volatile moods. Teen therapy can also help them gain coping tools if they are experiencing loss, bullying, illness or injury, or the death of a family member or friend. Changes in academic performance could point to an underlying and undiagnosed learning disability, which can lead to loss of self-esteem and confidence, frustration, and anger.

Red flags that would merit immediate attention from a therapist are self-harm, chronic substance abuse, and suicide ideation or attempts. Before those crises are reached, though, be assured that you, your family, and your teen don’t need to go it alone. At Apex Therapy Services, our therapists can help your teen understand themselves and your family to maintain healthy communication and dynamics.

One-on-One Teen Therapy

One-on-one teen therapy sessions offer a confidential space for adolescents to freely express themselves and address specific issues. A personal session with a teen therapist fosters self-awareness, coping skills, and resilience. Our goal in psychotherapy for teens is to empower your teen to navigate life challenges more effectively. The trusting therapeutic relationship formed in individual sessions promotes long-term emotional and psychological growth.

Family Group Therapy

Apex Therapy offers group therapy sessions for teens and their families to improve communication and understanding within the family unit. These sessions involve both parents and adolescents, to deepen family connections. By participating in therapy, families with teens can strengthen their relationships and equip themselves with coping mechanisms and tools.
