We seek to connect through an engaged relationship which grants a safe space for them to share their concerns and experiences. As children develop, their perspective and comfort level with expressing themselves change. Let’s face it, puberty is hard and comes with its own challenges. It is common for teens to feel uncomfortable in their own bodies during this stage of development due to hormonal and physical changes. While this can trigger feelings of anxiety and feel blue, many teens feel isolated during this shift. Taking social pressures and expectations into consideration, teens have both internal and external forces working in synchrony.
While communication can be difficult for teens, we can grant the support needed to learn how to regulate and express their emotions during these changes. We support teens while they adapt to change, cope with curveballs, gain insight and guide emotional development. We work collaboratively with teens to develop healthy relationships and increase their quality of life during this new phase.
