Teenagers are often reluctant to attend therapy and this reluctance is a normal part of the process. With adolescence being a time of great change, pressure, and questioning, therapy is often needed. Establishing a safe and trusting relationship with your teen is the first priority. Asking teens what they want to work on and helping them feel heard and respected, is a crucial part of engaging teens in the work of therapy. Helping parents maintain a good working relationship with their teen is a goal of teen therapy. Parents are partners, not adversaries in their teens therapy. Adolescence is a time of great confusion, questioning, fear, anxiety, making it the ideal time to have a trusted professional working with you to guide your teenager to success.
