Do you feel that you are surviving but you are not living life due to the pain that you have experienced? Often times we run away from the pain; we incorporate countless of ways to avoid it including through symptoms of anxiety, anxiety attacks, depression, substance, post-traumatic stress, adjustment disorders, anger, or any other means that will help us to not lean toward the pain. I often tell my clients, "You have to Feel in order to Heal," and this is where we take back our authentic power and we learn to thrive. Let me be the one to speak to that wounded part of YOU and allow me to say, you are able to HEAL!

Everyone struggles. We fight to get thru stress & problems. You may be there now or feel like it will happen. Like the rest of us, you may not let others in or show your emotional pain, but try to do the best you can to hold on daily. So there's nothing wrong with working on your own, yet it helps to let others in to unload the burden & pain you carry. Many of us fear to share our private pain, hurt feelings, or concerns stirring us emotionally. Anxiety is a normal part of talking to a therapist about your challenges. My goal is not to judge you but to aid you in your process of recovering to a balanced & healthy mind to live fully.

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.
