Adolescent & Teen Counseling

How Counseling Can Help My Teen

I believe being a teenager is harder than ever. Navigating friend groups, technology, and social media can be stressful. With schoolwork and activities, it can be difficult to find enough time to be a teenager, or even sleep. Adding in pressure about college and uncertainty about your future only makes life harder to manage. During this time when emotions can change by the minute, it is easy to feel overwhelmed.

I understand and I am here to help.

I Can Help If You…

  • Struggle in school – grades dropping, don’t want to go
  • Excessive fear or worry
  • Excessive technology and social media use
  • Restless, feeling on edge
  • Low self-esteem
  • Nervous or anxious around others
  • Text anxiety
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Stressed all of the time
  • Particularly irritable
  • Difficulty making friends or struggling in social life
  • Major life change or new school
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Avoiding things you used to enjoy
  • Spending more and more time alone
  • Grief

How Empower Counseling Can Help

I will listen to you without judgment as you describe what is troubling you. We will talk about what your life would look like if you woke up and all of your problems were gone. Then we will create a plan together to help you get back to really enjoying your life. This is your time with me. As long as there is no danger of you hurting yourself or someone else, what you tell me will not be repeated to anyone else.
