Teenagers

The life of an adolescent and their family can be complex to say the least. Our teenage years are a time of transition, exploration and growth that can cause difficulties in many areas of our lives. Today’s teenagers are under a great deal of stress, which is exacerbated by social, technological and family pressures. This stress can lead to difficulties such as withdrawing, acting out, communication breakdown and other concerning behaviours.

We believe it’s crucial to provide teens with the opportunity to take part in their own therapy to help them further develop skills that promote independence, family connection, and guides them in successfully navigating their way to adulthood.
