Adolescence is a difficult time for most teens.  There are many new challenges, expectations, pressures and relationships that emerge.  In this context complicated concerns may present themselves.  At times it is important to consider: Does my teen have a mental health concern?

Some concerns that teens may face:

  • Learning Disabilities
  • Nonverbal Learning Disability
  • OCD
  • PTSD
  • Self-Harm
  • Sexuality
  • Social Isolation
  •  Suicidal Thoughts
  • Addictions
  • ADD/ADHD
  •  Anxiety
  •  Autism/Asperger’s
  • Conduct Disorder or Trouble with the Law
  •  Depression
  • Eating Disorders
  • Giftedness

No matter what your teen may be facing it is important to consider finding psychological support if any of the above concerns are showing up.  In particular, when a teen acts out through addiction, crime, self-harm, or threatens suicide many parents feel overwhelmed and unsure how to help their teen.  Teens do tend to express their inside pain by acting out.  Our psychologists are good at engaging and meeting teens where they are at.
