Counseling for Adolescents and Teens—Teen Counselors in Allentown, PA
Adolescence can be one of the most difficult times in a person’s life. It is a time when someone is expected to mature, grow, become their own person, and develop into a young adult. It is a time for change, development, and many transitions. Are you going through a time of hormonal changes? Does your teenager experience random mood swings? Do you or your teenager feel overwhelmed?
Parenting a teen can be very challenging, and at times you may feel like a failure. Are you and your teen arguing constantly? Is your teen yelling at you on a daily basis? Do you feel as though your relationship is growing distant? Are you observing unexplained behavior changes? Is your teen telling you they hate you? These things are normal in some teenagers and you certainly are not alone in this transition period. This is an adventure between you and your teen. It is normal to feel stuck and to be unsure of the answers. Every teenager is different.
Let us partner with you through this journey and help you and your teen get back on track with one another. We know how precious your child is to you! Call Thriveworks Allentown, where a counselor trained in working with adolescents can help you understand the crazy rollercoaster ride.

How Does Counseling Work with Adolescents?
At Thriveworks Allentown a counselor will sit down with you and/or your adolescent and actively listen to the concerns. They will then help you and your adolescent identify and understand the problem and give strategies and techniques to overcome issues. Sometimes the best course of treatment is working with the adolescent alone, with parents, or entire family. Your counselor will help you decide the best course of action for your adolescent and situation.
