As a woman of color and an immigrant, I can identify with some unique challenges that individuals may face. As we face different circumstances, we will need different levels of psychological support and assistance throughout our lives. I am passionate about quality mental health care for all persons, regardless of their challenges. I support destigmatizing mental health issues and prioritizing prompt treatment and care.

What is your go-to approach for teen counseling?

My go-to approach for helping people in teen therapy is cognitive behavioral therapy. I enjoy CBT because you are able to work to shape their perception of themselves and life in a positive light.

What tools do you teach in teen counseling?

I teach about the following in teen counseling: safety, relationships, triggers, anxiety, depression, stress regulation, coping skills, and self-esteem.

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

I know a client is making meaningful progress in teen counseling when their symptoms are decreasing in self-reports.

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

Clients can supplement their time in teen counseling by taking the time to practice activities given to them in sessions.

What should someone do to prepare for starting teen counseling?

To prepare for their first teen counseling session, a teen can have an idea of areas where they think they struggle and not just have the parents say what is “wrong” with them.

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 San Antonio 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 San Antonio, TX 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.
