Teens encounter complex issues as they transition from childhood to adulthood. As they work to solidify their identity and balance expectations, many will struggle. Family Restoration’s highly trained and compassionate counselors are here to help. Our adolescent counseling services are tailored for teenagers and their families. Our goal is to not only address the problem at hand, but also, importantly, set the young person up for success going forward.
Possible Signs of Struggle
Every individual is unique, but those close to a struggling adolescent might observe them:
- exhibiting a decreased ability to cope
- showing signs of stress or agitation
- acting out
- crying frequently
- hiding or sneaking around
- using drugs
- disregarding curfew or other established parameters
- struggling in school
- eating too little or too much
- sleeping too little or too much
Areas of Treatment
Like adults, adolescents can benefit greatly from professional therapy. Exploring challenges, feelings and beliefs in a safe, structured setting, our trained counselors give adolescents the opportunity to be open and provide them with proven tools to apply to life’s challenges. Our adolescent services address a wide range of mental health concerns, including:
- low self-esteem
- eating disorders
- learning disabilities
- addiction recovery
- blended families
- grief and loss
Our First Session
At Family Restoration we believe the caretaker’s role is pivotal to our success with the adolescent. For our first session, we request that the parent(s) or guardian(s) attend with the adolescent. Going forward, we will most often meet just with the adolescent client, but will maintain regular, open dialogue with the parent(s) or guardian(s).
So Much Opportunity Ahead
At the threshold of independence, with so much opportunity ahead, adolescence is an exciting life stage. At Family Restoration Counseling Services, we are committed to helping individuals and families regain and maximize their ability to function well in life. The goal of our adolescent counseling services is to support youth through their transition to adulthood, arming them with the tools they will need to thrive throughout life.
