Being an adolescent today is challenging and complicated with depression and anxiety becoming more common. Counseling can provide additional support and resources for families whose teen may have hit a "bump in the road.” Perhaps your teen is engaging in serious, self-destructive behaviors and feeling depressed or anxious.  Maybe family interactions have become bogged down in constant conflict. Therapy can help both parents and adolescents find new ways of interacting and understanding one another.  A Mentalization-based therapeutic approach (MBT) may be particularly helpful for families struggling to communicate effectively or for teens having difficulty forming relationships.
