"I am so happy that you are in the process of starting therapy. Some people think that going to therapy means that they are weak or can’t get themselves together. The truth is, strong people can admit when they need help, and none of us have it all together. Therapy is a safe place to come and learn about yourself and how experiences and circumstances have shaped you. Therapy can be beneficial for concerns ranging from feeling overwhelmed to suffering from a severe mental illness. My goal as a therapist is to identify what your goals and desires are emotionally and behaviorally and help you meet them."

Adolescents / Teenagers (14 to 19) Therapists
Adolescence describes the teenage years between 13 and 19 and can be considered the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood. However the physical and psychological changes that occur in adolescence can start earlier, and it can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can bring up issues of independence and self-identity. Sometimes teens may be experimenting with drugs and alcohol or sexuality. During this time, peer groups and external appearance tend to increase in importance.

For help with adolescents or for a 37303 adolescent therapist these professionals provide help for adolescent development and adolescent education. They include adolescent therapists in 37303, adolescent psychologists, and adolescent counselors. They can help with adolescent behavior, adolescent learning and adolescent discipline.

37303 teen Therapists also provide help for troubled teens in 37303 or troubled teen boys and girls. For parents of out-of-control teens, 37303 therapists can help with communicating and understanding your teen. And therapists in 37303 can help with teenager behavior and teen learning issues.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 37303 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 37303 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 37303 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 37303 or family therapy in 37303.
