Adolescents, Teens & Young Adults

Counseling teenagers can be difficult when traditional talk therapy may serve as a barrier in communication. A great deal of resistance may exist when working with teens because of their internal and external developmental transition from child to adult. In order to combat this, we use a variety of creative techniques that promote both verbal and nonverbal expression in a way that is therapeutic rather than stigmatizing. We can help you with:

  • Adolescents and Early Adult Focused Therapy
  • Teen Violence and Social Adjustment Issues
  • Self-Esteem, Self-Value, Appreciation & Adjustment Issues
  • Academic Underachievement
  • Bullying and/or Oppression
  • Defiance & Peer Relationships

Conflict Resolution/Anger Management

A lot of us believe that anger is a bad emotion. In fact, it’s neither good or bad and, like any emotion, anger conveys a message. Are we ready to listen? To quote Aristotle “Anyone can be angry, that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time for the right reason and in the right way, this is not easy”. The way in which we express our feelings and the behavior we use to express ourselves will define our ability to stay in control, or totally lose control. Like everything in life, how we react and respond to situations is always in our control. Out of control anger hurts our physical and mental health, as well as our relationships with others.We can help you with conflict resolutions and anger management. We specialize in:

  • Coping Skills
  • Communicating more effectively
  • Assertive communication providing a path to conflict resolution

LGBTQIA+

The stigma and discrimination LGBTQIA+ individuals often face can be a serious impediment to their well-being.

We offer affirmative therapy for our LGBTQIA+ clients. This is an approach to therapy that embraces a positive view of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQIA+) identities and relationships, and addresses the negative influences that homophobia, transphobia, and heterosexism have on the lives of LGBTQIA+ clients. This type of psychotherapy validates and advocates for the needs of sexual and gender minority clients. Our therapists use verbal and nonverbal means to demonstrate an affirming stance toward LGBTQIA+ clients. We can help empower you.

  • Lesbian & Gay Affirmative Therapy
  • Self-Esteem, Self-Value, Appreciation & Adjustment Issues
  • Sexual Orientation/Gender Attraction Issue
