Teens & Families

Whether your son or daughter in facing challenges with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, relationships, assertiveness, or other challenges, individualizing strategies to your teen’s unique strengths is important to me. Some common elements of therapy may include for example, developing an awareness of the impact of the illness or stressor on your teen’s life, creating a safe and interesting place to explore areas such as emotions and emotion regulation, thoughts, beliefs, behaviours, problem solving, interpersonal skills, and other ideas and approaches to help your teen manage whatever is negatively impacting their quality of life.

A new mental health diagnosis can often be a confusing and overwhelming process for the entire family. Family support can also be provided to your family when deemed beneficial.  Involving a professional can help provide accurate information about the illness, symptoms, what to typically expect, how to best manage potential relapse, how to manage conflicts that arise, and other individually tailored treatments for your teen and family. Call today to find out the best options for you and your family.
