The Benefits of Teen Therapy


A Note From the L.A. Teen Therapist

Therapy… A necessity? A luxury? Or a stepping stone to well-being and success? – Sandra

It is not uncommon for parents to seek that cutting edge experience that will boost their teen’s self-esteem, motivation and character. From private tutors, to semesters abroad, parents look for ways to provide their child the tools they need to succeed.

In the time of Freud, talk therapy was only available only to the select few who could afford it. Self-reflection, through the process of talking to a trained professional, resulted in greater self-awareness and self-acceptance. Symptoms that had long plagued clients were eliminated as clients came to understand the purpose those symptoms served, and integrate that understanding into their life experiences.

Today, parents may hesitate to take their teen to a therapist to address the issues that are impacting their teen’s performance, or quality of life, afraid that they will be labeled problem kids or emotionally unstable. Yet, if your teen is struggling, it is essential to discover the cause and remedy it.

I offer a free initial parent consultation in order to assess any challenges your family may be dealing with and offer my best recommendations on how to address the situation.
