Adolescence is the time of greatest personal change, physically, emotionally, and mentally. Bodies transform, interests change, and the capacity to think abstractly heightens. Teens may be starting to break away from their family and create more responsibilities for themselves. They may also begin to change the way they view themselves in relation to their family as well as those around them. Although adolescence is an exciting time, it can also be a very scary and lonely period in life.
At Oriana Counseling Center, teens have the opportunity to safely explore who they are and who they would like to become, while receiving guidance and support for making positive life choices. Therapy serves as both an anchor and a guide keeping teens grounded while they learn healthy coping skills and concrete stress management techniques to deal with problems.
