In today’s modern world filled with technology, social media, higher than ever educational standards and pressures, and hectic fast-paced lifestyles, adolescents are easily overwhelmed with all the things being thrown at them on a daily basis. Developmentally, they are going through major physical, emotional, and hormonal changes that drastically affect their behaviors and thoughts. It is a time when they want to explore their worlds without as much parental control, yet still need their parents to provide a loving and safe haven. It is a time when parents feel extremely challenged, as their teens are experiencing strong emotions ranging from stress, failure, and rejection to shame, anger, and sadness. Adolescent/Teen counseling may be both individual counseling for the adolescent as well as some family therapy when it may be helpful to bridge communication gaps and create better understanding. While not many teens may express initial excitement or joy about attending counseling, most find it helps tremendously in their relationships with their parents as well as coping with school or peer pressures.
