About

Is your preteen or teen having problems at home or school (or maybe both)? Do you find that they are having trouble getting motivated, more irritable than normal, experiencing high levels of stress around social events or school, are struggling with confidence, or just spending all their time in video games or plugged in? They are not alone. Depression and anxiety have been on the rise across the board, but adolescents have been hit especially hard. This can be extremely frustrating as fights emerge over screen time, grades, or incomplete chores. Every day doesn’t have to be a struggle. We are here to help!
We know teens often struggle to express what is going on in their lives. That is why we tailor therapy around their interests. We believe that there are learning moments to be found through video games, pop culture, and role-playing games (TTRPGs). We can work 1 on 1 with your teen or in the group setting to build new coping skills and work through emotions.
Give us a call today to learn more about how we can start this journey together!
