Pediatric, Adolescent and Family Counseling

Young boys and girls are constantly faced with daily challenges in these ever-changing times. Boys begin to notice their growing emotional and social needs as they mature, while young girls face similar problems also associated with the need for recognition and support. Young people as a whole, regularly deal with struggles such as substance abuse, violence, eating disorders, depression and self-harm.

As a young mind develops, emotional and physical activities are highly influenced by significant brain growth. As the brain matures, risk-taking behaviors are also on the rise. Problem-solving techniques are a positive way to evaluate an adolescent’s ability to navigate every day situations. A young adult’s mood and perception is ever changing. Therefore, adolescent therapy allows for a strong formation of personal identity.
