Santa Monica Therapist To Help Your Teen Succeed

Adolescence is a magnificent time of exploration and tremendous growth. However, it can be quiet challenging for the individual as well as the family. The development into self and adulthood can be painful and confusing but it is a crucial period in one’s life that sets the pace for what’s ahead. Therapy can help adolescents develop:

  • improved communications skills
  • adaptive coping skills
  • a sense of self
  • clarity about self
  • greater self-confidence and self-esteem
  • positive family dynamics
  • healthy relationships with parents, siblings, and peers

Therapy in adolescence is crucial to prevent current struggles from worsening and becoming chronic in adulthood. We can work through the following difficulties together:

  • relational, peer, and family conflict
  • alcohol and substance abuse
  • sexuality
  • sexual trauma
  • disordered eating
  • depression and anxiety
  • self-harm behaviors
  • poor performance in school
