Adolescents and teens experience a number of physical and emotional changes in a short amount of time. At Old Towne Counseling Services, we help kids navigate these changes, as well as many of the social and developmental challenges they may face in their day-to-day lives.

As parents, we hope our children will come to us with their questions and concerns, but often they don’t. This is actually part of their healthy development, as they grow into young adulthood. In the process of this healthy maturation, many adolescents and teens can become rebellious and oppositional. The pressure they get from peers, messages from social media and other influences can influence them to take missteps and make poor choices.

At Old Towne Counseling Services, we provide the extra support your child may need to manage all the changes, influences and pressures they face in our modern world. We assist teens and adolescents in understanding parent’s perspectives, working with them to anticipate the social and academic challenges, and develop coping strategies to address them as they arise.

In addition to working with your child, we can work with you to productively manage the challenges that often come up when raising adolescents and teens such as:

  • Unpredictable moods
  • Impulsivity
  • Peer relationships
  • Academic and athletic pressures
  • Experimentation
  • Divorce/blended families
  • Self-harm
  • Trauma

If you see your child struggling, or feel you may need some support parenting them through this transitional time in their life, please call Old Towne Counseling Services, where our highly trained therapists can help get your child on the right track.
