Counseling for Adolescents
Teenagers and their parents are in a difficult dance. The search for independence paired with the strong desire to stay close and connected makes everything so complicated. In fact, the relationship between parent and child can start to seem impossible.
Adolescents are under such pressure to perform, to get good grades, to follow the rules and also find their own way. All of this can lead to anxiety, panic, depression in teens.
