Teen Counseling

Teen Counseling

Caring Therapists of Broward & Palm Beach has a team of therapists who have a long history of working with teenagers.  It takes a special type of therapist to be effective with teenagers.  The therapist needs to be empathetic and caring, in addition to being able to build rapport with a teenager.  Teens can be angry, defiant and unwilling to follow rules.  By having a therapist they can trust, they can learn to express their emotions in a healthy manner.

We specialize in working with teenagers, both boys and girls who struggle with the following:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Body image issues
  • Self Worth
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Self-harm
  • Social skills
  • Dating and relationships
  • Academic performance
  • Oppositional behavior
  • Rebellion
  • College preparation
  • Bullying
  • Sexual identity
  • Social media
  • Drugs and alcohol

Does this sound like your teenager?  We are here to help.  When providing counseling to your adolescent, we will work closely with the family to ensure your teen is getting the proper level of care. We work closely with other practitioners and schools to help bridge services and make sure your teenager is covered in all areas of their lives.

What to do if your teen needs therapy?

If you suspect your teenager is depressed or anxious, we are here to help.  We have a team of therapists who can help you and our office can help determine the best therapist for your child based on their personality, needs and wants.  We have therapists who are gender-affirming and can help your teenager with their sexuality and gender identity.  Many of our therapists are trauma informed and can help your teenager resolve underlying issues of trauma, including sexual abuse, suicide attempts, self-injurious behaviors and other traumas they may have experienced.

Teen Counseling can be a challenge to many counselors due to the many developmental dynamics involved. We have spent a majority of our careers working and fine tuning our work with teenagers from all walks of life and we love it! The majority of teenagers who step in our offices, voluntarily come back for their sessions rather than being forced to come.
Your child might also have behavioral or mental illnesses that need treatment. Teen counseling can help isolate your child’s current situational problems from deeper problems which might require medication or specialized treatment. Resolving your child’s behavioral problems or treating their mental illness will relieve them from many problems they are facing. Of course, as a child matures and develops, a certain amount of stress and/or issues are common and expected, but an overly stressed child is not a happy one. Teen counseling will help your child identify their problems and resolve to fix them. Teen counseling can also help repair communication skills and help families resolve internal conflict. Teen counseling can be paired with family counseling in order to maximize the benefit for both the child individually and the family as a whole.

Our team is ready to work with you.  Call or email us today for more information on getting your teenager the help they need.  You can reach us at info@caringtherapistsofbroward.com | 954-378-5381.
