Teen Counseling

This stage of life can be highly challenging and difficult to navigate for young adults. There’s so much to balance, from the pressures of school, friends, family, teachers to just being a well-balanced and healthy teenager. What often proves to be even more challenging is getting teens to admit that they’re struggling, that they’re not fitting in or feeling a little awkward about where they are in their lives.

Our counselors are well versed in addressing the multitude of concerns and behavior issues affecting teens, through both individual and family counseling.

Taking the First Step
It can be hard to admit that your teen needs help, but there are certain problems that we all know we may not be able to solve as a parent. Just remember, the longer you wait to seek help, the worse your teen’s problems may become.

Our counseling services are for teens who may be experiencing a wide range of difficulties, including:

  • Problem behaviors at home, school or both
  • Teen/parent relationships
  • Teen/teacher relationships
  • Depression and low self-esteem
  • Anger, aggression and acting out
  • Bullying
  • Self-injury
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • ADD and ADHD
  • Eating disorders
  • Identity, intimacy and sexuality issues (LGBTQ or questioning)
  • Blended family relationships
  • Social skills and peer relationships
  • Substance abuse
  • Divorce transition
  • Grief and loss
  • Spiritual meaning and direction
  • Chronic illness

Note: Not all services are available at all locations. Please contact your local CareNet center to confirm counselor and program availability.

Before our son came here, he was distant and hard to communicate with. Now he is back – you have restored a young man that too many others had already given up on. We will never be able to thank you enough.”
