• High School

  • This age group is in transition between being a child and become an adult.  During this period of development, teens are searching for their identity. Peer groups become the center of the teens' focus, while they begin to separate from their parents and siblings.  As a teen, many issues will arise that can be very risky for them. These include: increased susceptability of drug and alcohol usage/abuse, depression, the beginning of sexual behaviors including intercourse, teen pregnancy, bullying, lower self-esteem, getting less sleep (yet the body requires more due to growth and body changes), heightened anxiety due to increased pressure for college entrance, both at home and at school, etc.  

    For many teens, some of the above problems/behaviors can lead to depression, that can lead to suicidal thoughts and ideations. Anxiety disorders can lead to cutting. Negative body image can lead to lower self-esteem, anger management issues and isolation from their peers.

    Interventions at this stage of development include: Traditional Talk Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Strength Based Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Individual and often Group Therapy, Mindfulness Meditational Instruction, Art Therapy, Family Work, etc.
