Counseling Is Not Just for Grown-ups: Adolescent Counseling in Blacksburg, VA

Just like adults, kids experience stress. Such stressors may include school issues like:

  • excessive or difficult homework
  • test anxiety
  • peer pressure
  • bullying
  • learning difficulties

Family issues may also be stressors. For example:

  • parental arguing
  • divorce
  • new sibling
  • major illness
  • death

Miscellaneous transitions or life changes can also trigger stress in your adolescent:

  • changing schools
  • graduating from one school level to another
  • moving homes or cities

Also just like adults, adolescents who have having difficulty can participate in and benefit from counseling and/or coaching. Here at Thriveworks Blacksburg, we work with kids. We have helped many children and adolescents learn to identify the causes of their distress and develop the confidence to ask for help. And just like adults, adolescents can benefit from learning to express emotions in a healthy way. Kids who learn healthy coping techniques and methods of problem-solving often thrive.

What to Look For

Have you noticed a change in your child’s behavior? Have they recently become argumentative, irritable, withdrawn? Maybe you see a change in their emotional state, for example, they seem depressed, angry, worried, stressed out. Maybe they even seem too perfect or too compliant.

If you think your adolescent needs help, therapy may be a good option. It is important to be proactive about seeking help. Look for a safe, protected environment where your adolescent can work with a counselor toward identifying and expressing feelings in a way that is positive and productive.
