Relationships are incredibly important to teens. Recent advances in texting and social media have served to highlight the value teens place on peer relationships. Healthy relationships with parents, siblings, and authority figures can increase a teen’s ability to navigate healthy peer relationships. When a teen is struggling with a family or peer relationship, it can lead to a range of emotions such as depression, anxiety, isolation, alcohol/drug use, self-harm, and other concerning feelings and behaviors. Often times, counseling is an excellent solution in helping an adolescent gain an understanding of relationships and their impact on thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Journeys Counseling Center is well equipped to help teens understand and grow in relationships.
We generally recommend scheduling a specialized assessment with a trusted Journeys counselor to evaluate what your specific needs are, as well as determining best the options for treatment and more precise answers to the questions you may have about the process.
