Adolescents Counseling

Changes within interpersonal relationships or the family hit young adults/adolescents particularly hard. Different from adults, young adults/adolescents have less experience to draw on during these times of distress. Many posess positive solution strategies from their past, yet lack in the ability to draw upon these experiences without guidance.

What is important when working with young adults/adolescents is to form a working alliance founded on respect and trust. To achieve positive changes; transparency, honesty, and genuineness are required to form the therapeutic bond driving the counseling process. The family and environment when applicable is an important component as the work done in counseling will lose value if change is stifled to keep the familial status quo in order. It is essential for parents and family members to not just put forth effort in attempting to understand the problem, but to actually act to orchestrate positive environmental change while engaging in raising the functional level of the family dynamic.  As the young adult/adolescent changes and grows so to must the family change and grow.

  • Adjustment
  • Anxiety
  • Behavior disorders
