Do you notice that your teen is not themselves? Do they seem overwhelmed? Are they angry or withdrawn? As a parent of a struggling teen , you find yourself worrying about them and you want to make things better. But everything you have tried doesn’t seem to be working. It can be hard to reach out to a counselor because you want to find someone you trust who is knowledgeable but you also want that counselor to be able to get your teen to open up and talk about what is bothering them.

Making sense of trauma, anxiety, relationships, and big emotions can lead to confusion and shame. You may feel lost in painful cycles, held back by negative voices, or filled with self-doubt. Meeting with a counselor can help you find clarity and renew confidence. As vulnerable as it is to invite someone else into your story, it’s hard to untangle your inner web of thoughts and feelings on your own. I provide counseling services for women and teen girls who need compassionate and practical support navigating life’s challenges. I've helped hundreds of individuals transform confusion and shame into clarity and confidence.

Parenting adolescents is challenging. As your teen gets older, they may show signs of struggling in some or many areas of their lives. You may notice personality changes, or they no longer have the same interests or no longer seem motivated. You’ve read books, tried different strategies and tried to communicate with your teen , but there has not been sustained change. You know that your teen has potential, but how do you help them find it? Looking for outside help, can be a scary step, with many questions. Will someone be able to connect with my teen , am I able to trust that person/will my teen be able to?

If this is you, and talking with your spouse, friend or family member isn't getting you where you'd like to be, it might be time to give therapy a try.

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