Raising teenagers can be tough, and sometimes they present with challenges which require intervention. We collaborate with parents to address anxiety, depression, disrespect or lack of motivation. And we also work with teens themselves on how to better understand their issues and manage their fluctuating moods.
We offer teletherapy for clients who don’t want to (or can’t) come into the office due to distance, health, childcare or busy schedules. We use a convenient, secure, HIPAA compliant platform to provide online counseling services. All you need is a computer with a camera and mic and internet access.
