Our counselors help teenagers deal with various life stressors. Adolescents experience challenges coming at them from all directions. Whether coming from internal conflicts, family conflicts, peer pressures, life changes, or their environments, adolescents can greatly benefit from meeting with our counselors. In reality, anxiety, stress, depression, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, bullying, eating disorders, substance abuse, addiction, and oppositional behaviors, are all conditions affecting the adolescent’s well-being. Counseling around these topics can be extremely beneficial for teens to remain socially engaged and successful in school.
THROUGH LIFE TRANSITIONS
Frequently, adolescents experience difficult life transitions. The constant movement of environment between elementary school, middle school, high school, and college can be exhausting. As a result, adolescents are consistently adjusting to these changing environments. Counseling helps prepare students to make these transitions by ensuring they can identify healthy relationships, manage stress, and overcome issues stemming from childhood. Specifically for college students, a new environment away from home can mean learning how to handle new levels of stress, new financial responsibilities, and becoming independent. Establishing a healthy lifestyle and mental health will lead to a more fulfilled and successful adult. All things considered, these skills will help adolescents thrive in their new environments.
