BasePoint Academy was established because our community needed an adolescent (12-18) day treatment (PHP/IOP) program that focused on substance issues as well as mental health issues.
BasePoint Psychiatry & Wellness is unlike any other practice in the Dallas Area. Since our inception over a decade ago, the caring licensed counselors, psychologists, social workers, nurse practitioners, and psychiatrists at BasePoint have provided high-quality professional mental health counseling, life coaching, and medication management services to thousands of individuals, couples, and families in Forney, and the greater Dallas area.

As a parent of a teenager , you want what's best for your child. But sometimes they can be struggling with their emotions, and it's not always easy to know how to help them. If you're having trouble getting through to your teen , they likely need an unbiased third party they can relate to. My clients find security and acceptance when given the space to be themselves.

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
