At Transitions Counseling, we specialize in providing effective outpatient mental health services for adolescents. Adolescence can be a difficult time in which young people experience a drastic life transition that can result in high levels of stress, anxiety, and depression. However, adolescence is also an ideal time for your child to develop social and emotional habits that are essential for their overall well-being.
Our team is committed to developing strong relationships with young people and providing them with individualized and group mental health care that they need during this important time. Adolescents who receive appropriate mental health care have a decreased risk of social exclusion, educational problems, engaging in risky behaviors, physical health problems, and suicide. They are also more likely to establish healthy mental habits that aid them in leading fulfilling lives as adults.
At Transitions Counseling, we utilize a variety of evidence-based and leading-edge treatment approaches to help adolescents and teens learn how to effectively cope with whatever life throws their way. Our practice uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and interventions that address the whole person. To develop their social and emotional habits, your child may be encouraged to participate in one or more of the following:
- DBT Skills Training
- EMDR Sessions
- Expressive Arts Therapy
- Family Groups & Workshops
- Group Counseling
- Meditation & Mindfulness Exercises
- Nutritional Assessment & Coaching
- Yoga Practice & Yoga Therapy
Although prioritizing your adolescent’s mental health care can be time consuming and may decrease their ability to participate in after-school activities, the potential benefits include improved academic and social lives, as well as their future relationships and coping mechanisms. As a parent, one of the greatest gifts you can give your child is the tools to manage their mental health from a young age.
