Parents, are you worried that your teen may be stressed or depressed? Are they refusing to communicate with you, staying up real late at night, becoming defiant and or have excessive use of gaming or social media? Has social distancing caused them to isolate from friends and family and sleep all day? Have they seemed to have lost all motivation and have no structure to their daily life? My name is Tametra Johnson and I am the founder of Jacobs Ladder Therapies. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 15 years experience working with teens and mental health.

Trouble communicating with your teen ? Unable to break the cycle of arguments with your partner? Overwhelmed and not sure why? Our interactions with the world are shaped by our families and the broader cultures that surround us as we grow up. As an adult, you might find that those patterns no longer work for you, or get in the way of your having fulfilling relationships with your spouse or children.

Isolation is hard. Being a Teen is hard. School pressure to perform well is high. Liking your body often seems impossible. Socializing has challenges. Past bullying can be traumatic. Do you want to learn knew coping skills? Do you need to heal from past events that are painful? Do you want to reduce your stress? Parenting a teen is hard, there is no manual and not as much parent contact as in elementary school. Getting enough self care as a parent can seem impossible but it is necessary, especially in the time of the COVID crisis. Telehealth is available!

Are you feeling stuck? Does your life feel overwhelming? Are you having a difficult time coping? I would like to support you in leading a fuller and more meaningful existence. As your therapist, I will help you cope more effectively with your problems by challenging your routine thought processes, identifying typical response patterns, and learning effective ways of behaving. You can expect to discover new insights about yourself and feel empowered to make changes that align with your values. The eventual goal is for you to translate what you learn in therapy into daily living, and find healing amidst adversity.

Seeking therapy can be a challenging step, because opening up about intimate issues to a stranger is both terrifying and can leave you feeling vulnerable. That's why it's important to find somebody with whom you feel comfortable. It is my priority to make one feel at ease, because reaching your goal is more difficult when this is not at the foundation of the therapeutic experience. This approach has enabled me to work with a wide array of children, teens, adults, couples, and families.

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.
