pre-teen and teen therapy
Pre-teens and teenagers today are living in a social media driven world that presents new challenges for parents. Teenage brains are still developing and their experiences during this critical time shape the way they view the world. These developmental years are also a time when kiddos tend to move away from the family system and become more closely tied with friends. Between demanding schoolwork, multiple extracurricular activities, friendship drama, and social media, teens are displaying the highest levels of depression and anxiety seen in history. Here at Connect to Thrive, we utilize a variety of treatment methods catered to meet your teen's needs, help them learn to effectively express their feelings, build self-esteem, and identify positive coping skills. Teens benefit from sand tray therapy, activity therapy, expressive arts, and talk therapy.
