Have you noticed your teen isn't acting like him or her self? Have they experienced a difficult break-up, major transition, change, or loss?  Does your teen fear or dislike going to school, struggle with relationships, have constant worries, or complains of frequent stomach aches?  Are you wondering if your teen needs more one on one attention? Or do you fear your teen is heading down a path which may be detrimental to their future?

 

Today our adolescents are facing obstacles and pressures that they are not cognitively nor emotionally prepared to handle due to their developmental age. Children, regardless of their age or gender, are maneuvering through their day trying to discover their authentic self while trying to navigate school, family, friends, etc. Our adolescents are experiencing such strong emotions that they simply cannot make sense of; much less express them in a way we as parents and caregivers can understand. TrueSelf Counseling has extensive experience working with adolescents who are struggling with anxiety, relationships, depression, self-esteem, aggression, and defiance. 

TrueSelf Counseling offers a holistic approach when working with pre-teens and teens demonstrating behaviors ranging from mild to more severe. TrueSelf Counseling acknowledges that traditional "talk therapy" does not always work with this population. Therefore, a range of modalities and techniques which utilize art, sand tray work, and play is used to help connect and reach this vulnerable group of children.
