Specific Treatment Tracks
We develop a unique and individualized person-centered treatment plan for each client. This can include a specialized family-centered treatment plan when appropriate.
In addition to our ability to diagnose and treat mental health and addiction concerns, we specialize in the following treatment tracks for our clients and families.
Adolescents that start presenting with disordered or picky eating are more likely to develop an eating disorder when the symptoms and behaviors go unmanaged. Eating issues can come from disordered thoughts or behaviors, poor body image, or unresolved emotions that centers around food and eating rituals. Our program addresses the presenting problem in order to reduce symptoms while addressing the underlying issues.
School or Goal Issues
Pressures on academics, athletic or other performances can become overwhelming. Our team is able to help teens and young adults separate the emotion from the logic and build resiliency in order to re-frame obstacles as opportunity. Learning how to prioritize tasks and take inventory of what is important is one coping skill that will be used for a lifetime.
Failing grades, skipping classes or an overall lack of motivation is a sign that a teen needs a little more help. Our team is experienced with teen issues and are able to support your teen with individual and group therapy.
Our program includes education assistance to get teens back on track. We also offer goal and career assistance for graduates.
We work closely with schools to ensure that assignments are completed and that academics do not suffer due to treatment.
Isolation and Social Anxiety
Anxiety among adolescents is not uncommon but when anxiety starts to impair daily functioning, intervention from a professional can help provide tools and resiliency training for teens. Early intervention is key in social anxiety among teens in order to avoid impairment in social abilities or school performance. Individual and group therapy for teens with social anxiety are beneficial for teens because they both address underlying causes of anxiety and provide a safe space for teens to explore their emotions and though patterns.
Anger Issues and Outbursts
It can be very scary when teens withdraw from family or friends or have anger outbursts. Parents may feel nervous to intervene or upset the child. Therapy is a good resource for teens who are isolating or having anger outbursts because it is a place to hold them accountable and provide new tools for better coping. Individual therapy for teens can help resolve the deep rooted issues a teen may not feel comfortable discussing with an adult. Group therapy is a great way for teens to connect with peers and find commonalities with other teens.
Video games and cell phones are a part of most families daily lives. What happens when the devices meant to bring us together are actually separating us? Our team can help refocus adolescents and create a healthy balance between being present in the moment and enjoying electronics.
Isolation, avoidance, depression, anxiety, burnout, sensory or stimulation issues may be a factor for those spending too much time on video games or apps and we are here to help.
Our center offers group therapy for adolescents who need support. Call us today to learn more about this unique program or to schedule a time to meet our staff and tour the clinic.
