Counseling for Teenagers


Let's be real here. . . being a teenager can be rough!


Between the pressures of school, home, peers and planning for the unknown future, it's no wonder many teens experience feeling overwhelmed, depressed, angry, isolated, streessed, and anxious.


Hoping to find a way for your teen to communicate and express their often diffucult emotions in a safe way? Unsure how to best help your teenager through a difficult life transition such as peer pressure, divorce, bullying, loss of a loved one? 


The creative arts therapies give voice to teens through expressive art materials, music, movement and role play. When words are not available for expression or communication of difficult feelings, the arts can speak instead. It is a language without words, offering a means for individualized and unique personal expression. Both the art itself and the process of creating art can provide teenagers with a non-verbal avenue to communicate, problem solve, express self and emotions, and positively cope with difficult experiences and life changes.


Let us support you and your teen through compassionately creative counseling and arts-based psychotherapy services. Contact us to schedule a consultation.
