A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.—J. A. Shedd. Are you or someone you care about feeling anxious, sad, worried or maybe just stuck? Perhaps it’s a relationship conflict, school anxiety or a phase of life issue. Do the thoughts of what to do or how to help just leave you feeling more confused and exhausted? Life can be challenging! It is normal for all of us to need support, encouragement and feedback at different points in our lives. It takes courage to face our personal challenges and not be “stuck in the harbor”.

People that are looking for professional mental health services come from all ethnicities, backgrounds, and walks of life. Some are in the twilight of their lives, while others are just getting started. Some need help with delicate relationship struggles, while others may find that they are searching for a diagnosis to help them finally make sense of things. Then there are those that are just looking for someone to talk to about what is going on in their lives. What you need to remember though, is that no matter what you are looking to get help with, you are not alone. The first step can be the hardest, but here you are!

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 Glen Ellyn and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
