Adolescence can be a time of both confusion and discovery. Through art, hands on activities and experiential exercises, teens can start to think differently about situations they are experiencing, such as the loss of a friend, dealing with a medical condition, academic stress, bullying, difficult family dynamics and overwhelming emotions. Counseling can help teens feel better and understand themselves better! It also helps teens know how their their actions, feelings, and thoughts affect their lives and learn ways to cope with difficult emotions. Therapy can help teens be more assertive and make better decisions, develop their own identity and feel more confident and empowered.
