Adolescent Therapy

Teenagers today face different and sometimes more complicated challenges than their parents and previous generations. Adolescents are at an exciting, but often complicated, stage in their lives. At Freedman Counseling Associates, we share your goal of having teens and pre-teens experience a healthy balance of independence, while staying connected to the family. We work with adolescents to develop new skills, manage social and family relationships, and find emotional balance with counseling support.

We support adolescents who are challenged by:

 

  • Social issues

  • Academic demands

  • Stress, depression and anxiety

  • Technology usage and dependence

  • Self-esteem

  • Relationships with parents and siblings

  • Mood issues

  • Risky behaviors


Our Approach

We’ll engage with your teenager and invite him or her to consider alternative strategies and approaches. "If what you're doing isn't working, it may be time to try something different." We provide a respectful, confidential, and positive relationship with our adolescent clients with the goal of having them feel understood and empowered. We believe that long lasting change occurs when we can help the whole family.
Our goal will be to involve you, the parents, in the process of finding solutions and testing them out at home.

When working with our teens we commonly use:

 

  • Solution-Focused Techniques

  • Family Therapy

  • Parent Coaching

  • Art Therapy

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
