What is your go-to approach for teen counseling?

A go-to approach for teen counseling is a confidential safe space to explore oneself from a lens of validation and empathy to lead to organic problem-solving in areas that are no longer healthy for our development as whole human beings.

What tools do you teach in teen counseling?

Self-awareness is our biggest skill and effective communication is our biggest tool. Focusing on building self-esteem and self-confidence through empowerment, boundary building, and conflict-resolution skills are great strategies when working with teens.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in teen counseling?

The way one can evaluate meaningful progress from a client is when they say this work is hard. Nothing worth doing comes easy or is changed in a few sessions. Our brains are lazy; working with a client through changing habits and thought processes takes time, exploration, and practice without judgment.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement teen counseling?

Completing the therapeutic homework, whether it's literal homework in terms of behavioral charts, for example, creative arts, or more existentially around thinking through concerts in between sessions. Therapeutic work, in my opinion, does not happen exclusively in the sessions, it happens outside of sessions. The therapeutic setting is meant to explore concepts on a deeper level to then make the next step of practicing those skills and concepts in between sessions.

What should someone do to prepare for starting teen counseling?

Making the initial step to set up the session is the most important and most empowering/strengths-based thing someone can do, albeit scary! To prepare for that first intake, remember, you're a rock star already.

Starting Teen counseling

What is teen counseling?

Teen counseling helps young individuals better understand and manage the challenges that affect their mental health. Common challenges amongst teens include anxiety, depression, ADHD, and problematic relationships with food.

How does teen counseling work?

Teen counseling works by using multiple techniques, tailored to fit the teen's unique needs — based on their age group, their challenges, and the severity of their challenges. It might involve cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, art therapy, and others for varying ages. In any case, Thriveworks teen therapists in Glen Burnie have the expertise and experience to help young individuals at their level.

Does my teen need therapy?

Signs that teens might need Teen counseling can be very subjective, as they are experiencing many changes and can have intense reactions to them. As parents, you know your child best and are best equipped to judge whether certain reactions are standard behaviors for your teen or whether they might be hinting at a larger problem. Even so, there are a few common signs and events that often point to a need for therapy, such as experiencing divorce or loss, grief, consistent low moods, teens distancing themselves and becoming isolated, losing interest in hobbies, excessive anger or irritability, substance use issues, and suicidal ideation, among others.

Is teen counseling conducted in person or online?

Teen counseling providers at Thriveworks in Glen Burnie, MD offer both in-person and online-therapy by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does teen counseling last?

The length of teen counseling depends on your teen's needs as well as the goals that you and their therapist might have for them. Generally, teen counseling sessions will last for several months.
