"DOES MY TEEN OR ADOLESCENT NEED COUNSELING?"  

Whether your teen or adolescent seems moodier than usual, or is having trouble in school or run-ins with law enforcement,  it may be hard to recognize if your teen could benefit from professional help. Counseling certainly doesn’t need to be reserved for life altering events or major concerns. Meeting with a counselor, especially a spiritual one in a comfortable and humble setting, can prevent minor issues from turning into major problems.

Behavior Problems:

Suspensions from school, curfew violations, frequent fights with siblings or parents, and aggressive behavior may be symptoms of more serious problems.  If not addressed early and effectively, these problems may worsen and lead to more problems later in life.

Low Self-Esteem:  While almost all teens struggle with self-confidence issues at one time or another, some experience serious self-esteem issues. When those issues are left unaddressed, teens are at a higher risk of problems such as substance abuse, depression, and academic failure.

Stress: 

Teenagers today deal with more stress than ever before.  Whether it’s the pressure to perform well on an exam, concerns over what to do after high school, or the pressures to fit in with peers, stress can take a serious toll.

School-Related Issues:

Bullies, failing grades, cliques, and excessive peer pressure are just a few of the school-related problems many teens experience. Teens often aren’t sure where to turn for help.

Legal Problems:

Stealing, underage drinking, drug use or fighting are just a few of the reasons teens get into trouble with the law. Sometimes, they’re mandated by probation–or their parents–to receive counseling.

 

 

 

Teens and adolescents experience and deal with emotional and social issues differently than adults and children.  Counseling can go a long way to: ease your teen’s fears and anxiety; uncover potential mental health issues, skill deficits, or social problems that may be driving your teen’s behavior; help your teen learn skills to manage stress successfully; provide your teen with support and give them skills that will help them navigate high school successfully; help your teen learn how to make healthier choices; help boost a teen’s self-esteem; increase resilience and reduce the impact of trauma on a teen’s life; and help teens sort out their feelings and make sense of difficult events.
