Modern therapy for teens to feel more grounded and balanced

Young adults and teen counseling in San Juan, PR and San Jose, CA

You knew having a teenager would be hard, but not this hard.  

You're trying to stay connected to your teen and support them as best you can, but they're irritable, argumentative, and pulling back more than they ever have. 

You can see the stress, anxiety, and academic pressure is affecting them, and you want to be there for them, but you're not sure how.

 

You want to help and support your teen, but it seems like no matter what you say, they disagree or don't respond at all.  You know that they need to talk to someone, and it's hard to admit that maybe it's better for them to talk to someone else. 

You’re tired of seeing your teen:

  • Struggling and having difficulty managing their emotions and not having the coping skills to deal with their situation.   

  • Anxious and stressed about school, their social life, or life transitions that have happened.  

  • Isolating and lacking connection and communication between you and the family.
