Adolescence is a time of significant physical, emotional, and social changes, and it is not uncommon for teens to feel overwhelmed, anxious, or uncertain. Our counselors prioritize providing a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential space for teenagers to explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. The increased expectations and hormonal changes mean that adolescence can be a time of heightened emotions and stress. Our counselors help teens develop healthy coping mechanisms, emotional regulation skills, and strategies to manage anxiety, depression, self-esteem, academic stress, body image, and more.
Teenagers are also learning to navigate complex relationships with peers, family members, and authority figures. Therapy can help them develop healthier communication skills, navigate conflicts, and build stronger and more fulfilling relationships.
Most significantly, teenagers are confronted with questions of identity, self-esteem, and self-discovery. Therapy provides a supportive space for teens to explore their sense of self, values, and beliefs, fostering personal growth and a stronger sense of identity.
How do we work with teens?
At Lighthouse, we tailor our approach to meet the unique needs of each teenager. Our counselors work collaboratively with the teenager to address the things that are most important to them. A combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based, Family-Oriented Therapy, and other modes of therapy help teenagers navigate the challenges of adolescence with strength, confidence and compassion towards themselves and others.
