Four Points Therapy can work with teens experiencing issues including:

The teenage years can be filled with excitement and hope but they can also bring about stress and uncertainty. Each adolescent is tasked with a variety of developmental challenges including gaining autonomy, establishing peer connections, developing their identity, and settling into their bodies. I work as a team of collaborative care with teens, parents, school educators, and medication providers to provide all around care for my teen clients. I work to help teens to gain self-awareness in relation to their world while learning new skills for handling challenging circumstances.

My therapeutic approach for teens varies based on the teen themselves as well as the context they are dealing with. Depending on their developmental age, I tailor our counseling sessions based on what makes them feel comfortable, safe and secure. If a teen dreads going to therapy, I'm not doing my job! This may require the use of therapeutic tools including games, art, and story telling. For other teens, they prefer to jump right in to talking about what is on their mind. I work systemically when helping teens which may require changes to be made in their environment, relationships, or other aspects of their lives. The goal is for them to know themselves better, cope with changing circumstances, and feel at home with themselves.
