Counseling for Teens

Teens have a lot of pressure on them coming from many directions. They are exposed to so many messages coming from so many different sources. Many teens are concerned about grades, self-esteem and self-worth, identify issues, friendships, sexuality, dating, body image, family situations, and decisions about college and career. Teens are faced with many different situations, choices, messages and values as they socialize with peers in school, in other community settings, and online.

In addition, they often have access to images and information that parents may be unaware of. Often the situations teens are faced with place them in a position where they have the opportunity to make a choice that is not in line with the values they have been taught in the family. As teens navigate these situations, parents and family members often continue to play the most important role. However, even in strong families, it is often helpful for teenagers to have somebody to talk to who is not a family member or a peer.
