Has your teen gone through a major change and may not be adjusting well?
Entering adolescence is an exciting and difficult time for many teens…. and for their parents. Emotional concerns may arise, such as anxiety, depression, mood-disorders as well as behavioral concerns.
As a parent, you want the best for your teen, but sometimes it can be hard to know what to do. You want to connect with their emotions, help them with their outburst, but are met with resistance. All you want is to find the right tools to help.
You just want to know what is going on.
You think something has happened, but they won’t let you in. Or maybe things have changed at home, such as divorce, relocation, etc., and you want to know how they are doing and help them through this transition.
Adolescence is challenging time for many reasons. It is the time that adolescents create their identity and begin to see the world in an entirely different way that they did when they were children.
It is a crucial time to launch into adulthood.
In today’s world, with social media and pop culture so hyper focused on sex, drugs, and violence, it is scary as a parent to see your children grow with these messages. You want to help them launch into adulthood in a healthy way.
Did you know that during adolescence your child will develop his/her brain the most since being infants? More specifically, your teen will experience the largest growth of the frontal lobe from adolescence until early adulthood. The frontal lobe is responsible for problem solving, spontaneity, initiation, judgement, impulse control, and social and sexual behavior.
Helping your teen develop healthy habits as they grow until adulthood and independence doesn’t have to be a lonely feeling. At Infinite Therapeutic Services, we are here to help you and your teen through this transition in a safe, comfortable and collaborative environment.
We also offer academic testing for those needing to find out if there are any learning disabilities or other concerns that may be affecting the teen’s academic performance. Click here to learn more about our services on Academic Testing.

YOUR TEEN DESERVES THE BEST.
TEEN COUNSELING CAN HELP.
Your teen is not alone: According to NAMI, the National Alliance of Mental Illness, statistics show that 1 in 5 teens experience mental health issues. NAMI also reports that 10% of adolescents experience behavioral issues.
The good news, however, is that with the help of a compassionate, experienced teen therapist you may be able to find the help your teen needs to overcome their emotional or behavioral issues.
At Infinite Therapeutic Services, we have a team of dedicated counselors trained in evidence based and strength-based approaches to help reduce emotional and behavioral issues in teens.
We collectively believe that therapy is a collaborative process to help teens and their parents find solutions, in a safe and confidential environment.
Teen Counseling can be a way for your teen to learn how to manage his or her emotions, enhance behaviors, make better choices, improve communication, and increase motivation to get responsibilities accomplished.
Our approach is one of focusing on your teen’s strengths. Counseling for adolescents can also improve the family dynamic as a whole. When working individually with a teen, a clear policy of what will be communicated between the adolescent and the parent will be agreed upon during our first meeting.
On some occasions, approaching the concern of your teen as a family might be a better fit. As family therapists, our approach is collaborative so that the changes can be maintained at home without the need for long-term therapeutic services.

INTERESTED IN TEEN COUNSELING BUT STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?
Is teen counseling only for my child or for the whole family?
During the evaluation process, your therapist will provide recommendations. At times, teenagers benefit from individual counseling; other times, the presenting issues are better treated through family counseling, or a combination of both. Your therapist will provide recommendations as needed during the evaluation process.
How will I know what is going on with my teen in counseling?
While your therapist will be in contact with the parent, teens are entitled to confidentiality by law just like an adult with the exception of when there is: (1) The teen is at risk of suicide, (2) The teen is at risk of homicide, (3)The teen discloses that he or she has experienced abuse or neglect by an adult. We want to make your teen feel safe and comfortable throughout this process.
