We offer group and individual sessions.

Being a teen in today’s world is unlike any other period in our history. Rates of substance abuse, car accidents, and pregnancies are down in many parts of the country, but rates of depression, anxiety, and self-harm have increased. Our teens face stressors like cyber bullying, online sexualized behavior, peer pressure, and access to violent and pornographic content all in the palm of their hands. Our world is becoming more connected, but we are growing father apart in many ways. Let us help you reconnect with your teen, teach them helpful coping skills, and provide a safe and nurturing environment in which to explore their strengths and increase their sense of mastery over the stress and anxiety of today’s world. We treat self-harming behaviors, like cutting, as well as anxiety in teens.
