Teen Counseling Can Offer Assistance and Relief
Relationships are incredibly important to teens. Recent advances in texting and social media have served to highlight the value teens place on peer relationships. Healthy relationships with parents, siblings, and authority figures can increase a teen’s ability to navigate peer relationships. When a teen is struggling with a family or peer relationship, it can lead to depression, anxiety, isolation, alcohol/drug use, self-harm, and other concerning feelings and behaviors. Often, counseling is an excellent solution in helping an adolescent gain an understanding of relationships and their impact on thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Journeys Counseling Center is well equipped to help teens understand and grow in relationships.
We generally recommend scheduling a initial assessment with a Journeys counselor to evaluate what your child or family's specific needs are, as well as determining best options for treatment and more precise answers to the questions you may have about the process. The Journeys team strives to provide you with the best fit professionally, and will happily direct you to the counselor with the best personality, expertise and approach for your family.
