Teens Coping With Anxiety

A Note From The L.A. Teen Therapist

If your teen stressed out or anxious about school or friends, I can help them learn to self-soothe, and calm their anxious mind. – Sandra

Some teens are naturally more shy and quiet than others. As their bodies, voices, and emotions are going through changes, this population may become even more self-conscious. In extreme cases,  the adolescent may isolate themselves, unable to overcome their intense feelings of self-doubt and worry.

When a teen is willing to talk about their fears and anxieties, I listen carefully and respectfully. I help them understand that increased feelings of judgement and/or embarrassment about their body, performance, and peer relationships are fairly common in adolescence.

By encouraging your teen to examine their situations and experiences, I help them reduce the overwhelming nature of their feelings. Although their concerns may be real, there are techniques I can teach them to better manage their stress and anxiety.

Extreme anxiety in teens often benefits from a therapeutic intervention. Talk therapy, role-playing, conscious breathing exercises can help turn this painful situation around. An effective treatment plan is individualized to your teenager and family. While anxiety disorders can cause considerable upset in your teen’s life, the prognosis is very good.
