Therapy for Teens and Pre-Teens
Let's gently explore your experiences and implement resources to enhance feelings of calm, self-confidence, and self-compassion.
You feel worried about your child's emotional well-being and are at a loss for how to help them. When interacting with them, they generally seem unhappy. When you ask them how they are feeling, they shrug, reply with irritation, and/or reply with an "I'm fine." You are searching for supportive measures for the spark to come back to your child's eyes and to re-establish the loving connection you two shared.
Pre-Teens & Teens
You generally don't feel well and might not be sure why. It feels like you're drowning and that no one can see it. Sometimes you feel angry. Sometimes you feel sad. Sometimes you feel numb. You find yourself wondering if it can ever get better. You're searching for relief from the pain and wanting the ability to enjoy your life.

You may wish you could avoid eating, and then find yourself eating a lot and feeling out of control.
