Guiding Her Toward Brighter Days 

The teen years aren’t just a phase filled with angst, rebellion, and uncertainty – these years are deeply personal and definitive. And for many teens, they can be incredibly challenging, filled with pressure and a longing for acceptance.

At WPC, we recognize that every teen’s story is unique, and that just like any adult who walks into our office, they deserve to be treated with respect and have agency over their healing and care. With warmth and understanding, we create a space where they can freely express and explore their emotions, unpack trauma, find their voice, and embrace their individuality.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, therapy for teens is uniquely crafted to suit the specific challenges of adolescence. Unlike adult therapy, it considers factors like developmental stage, social pressures, school dynamics, and the transitional phase they’re in between childhood and adulthood.

Confidentiality is an essential aspect of any therapeutic relationship. We believe in the importance of family involvement and collaboration, and we also prioritize creating a safe space for your teen. We will always have a clear discussion upfront about the specific content of their sessions that can be kept private, and the kinds of information that must be shared. This encourages open and honest communication.

It’s not unusual for teens to feel unsure or even resistant to therapy at the outset. Our therapists work diligently to build trust and establish a genuine connection with each teen, making them feel valued and understood. Over time, this trust-building often eases any initial reservations.

Being an active and understanding participant in your teen’s mental health journey can make all the difference. Beyond the sessions, it’s about maintaining open lines of communication, being empathetic to their feelings, and being there for them. We’re here to offer guidance and strategies to ensure you’re best supporting your teen’s well-being.

Yes, we offer teletherapy options suitable for teens, especially in our digitally connected age. Numerous studies have shown that teletherapy can be as effective as in-person sessions. Our therapists are trained to create a therapeutic environment online that feels supportive, ensuring your teen receives the care they need, whether they’re at home or on the go.

At WPC, while we have expertise in various areas, we do not specialize in eating disorders or substance use treatments for teens. We believe in providing the best care, so if your teen is facing these challenges, we’re more than willing to provide appropriate referrals to specialists who can best address these specific issues.

Yes! At The Women’s Psychotherapy Center, we work with individuals of almost all ages. We tend to work with children ages eight to nine years old and up, throughout their lifespan. However, it depends on the individual child’s needs as well as the expertise of the assigned therapist. If you are interested in our services for a younger child, please give us a call or schedule a free phone consultation so we can further assess your individual needs and goals.
