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 Richmond 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 Richmond, VA 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.

It was my esteemed pleasure to have worked with Ashley Groeper at Liberty University where she touched the hearts and minds of countless individuals. As a former colleague, I witnessed firsthand her unrelenting dedication and compassion for the plight of anyone in need. Ashley creatively applied her impressive intellect in search of effective and innovative ways to serve the needs of others and the community at large. Even in the rare occasions when an answer eluded her, she simply would not stop searching until she found it! I am fully persuaded that Ashley's positive outlook and intense desire to help people become the best version of themselves will allow her to partner with her clients in engaging ways. This will not only provide them with a trustworthy confidante, knowledge, and resources, but will also empower them with the confidence to be excited about their future and to become change agents in their own destiny! If you are looking for a competant professional counselor who will give you the respect and dignity you deserve, listen without judgment, someone who will never sacrifice quality for quantity, and has an unwavering commitment to helping you make sense out of life again, you will have found all that and more in Ashley Groeper!
