When helping young women and teen girls recover from trauma, I have experience using art as a means to help them access what words cannot.
People are always saying that you seem to be doing ok but they have no idea how much you struggle! Ever since the terrible thing happened you have been distracted, irritable, having nightmares, and you cry at pretty much anything. You are the friend who will always be there for others, but often feel like you are losing yourself in the process. You just want to laugh more, have good relationships, get your grades up or get better at your job. You have hope that you can feel better, but right now you feel stuck because you really don’t know how.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Lakewood and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
