Being a teenager is hard for everyone. You don’t feel like a kid any more – but a lot of people still don’t quite treat you like an adult. It’s hard to know what to expect of people who are older than you, and your peers.
This can cause quite a bit of frustration – and during your high school years, things can get even harder. You’re planning for your future – maybe you want to go to college, or maybe you have something else in mind.
Regardless of your plans, the pressure of becoming an “adult” can become extremely hard to deal with, and lead to issues like anxiety, depression, and self-esteem problems.
I specialize in helping teens in the O’Fallon and surrounding area get the therapy services that they need to deal with this difficult time. As a qualified therapist, I can help you or your high school student understand why they feel the way they do – and work through a variety of different issues.
One of my main services to kids in their teens is helping them understand that their future is bright, and that it should not be feared. Planning for the future can be tough, but it must be done. I help my clients work through a wide variety of issues, including:
I take a personal approach to each one of my clients. When you choose my counseling services, I make it a point to understand you as a person, and understand what aspects of your life require adjustment. With respect to the teens confidentiality, I encourage the parent(s) to be a part their child’s therapy journey. Therapy can help parents gain a better understanding of their teen and what they are going through. As an experienced counselor for high school students in their teens, I strive to help you improve your life – and face the challenges of the future with confidence!
