Therapy For Teens in Pompano Beach, FL
As a teen, it’s not always easy to share life’s details with your parents. During this stage of development, it’s natural to start gaining opinions and interests of your own.
There are plenty of questions that you have, and things you want help with. It’s often hard to know where to turn to in tough situations.
I take a warm and respectful approach to teen therapy. You can vent, laugh, cry, scream–whatever helps you get it out– without fear of shame or punishment.
I’ve worked with teens in medical and treatment facilities, in outpatient services, in private practice, and within schools. I’m pleased to report many success stories among the hundreds of teens from all walks of life I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the past several years.
When I work with teens, I use a variety of approaches.
Teen Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is a type of evidence-based therapy that centers on how your thoughts, feelings and behaviors are inter-related.
Utilizing the techniques and skills taught in cognitive behavioral therapy helps teens become more aware of their thoughts, actions and feelings so they can view difficult situations more clearly and respond more effectively.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is the most widely used therapy to treat anxiety.
It is also very effective at treating teens struggling with:
Behavioral, emotional, and mental health challenges
Teen Psychodynamic Therapy focuses on how early childhood and relations with others can affect our development. It is based on the idea that the unconscious holds onto painful feelings and memories that are too difficult for the conscious mind to process.
Many children develop defenses such as denial to hide these memories and experiences from themselves. The aim of psychodynamic therapy is to bring the unconscious mind into consciousness. It helps a child or youth to experience and begin to understand their true, deep-rooted feelings in order to deal with them.
Psychodynamic therapy focuses on:
- increasing self awareness
- examining thoughts and feelings
- becoming more resilient
- being adaptable
