The teen years sees biological, social, and psychological changes – all at once! I Choose Change Counselors are non-judgmental taking into account the teen culture of mobile phones, iPods, popular music, movies, television programs, web sites, sports, video games, and clothing. Teen therapy can help.
Adolescence is a time in which peers often become more important than parents. Teens are working hard at developing their own sense of style and identity, and that means experimenting with new behaviors, friends, and activities. All of these are normal, but they can feel quite concerning as a parent! Teen therapy helps make sense of these rocky times. Especially when it feels like your teen has morphed into another being that is other-worldly. The behavior changes can happen as early as 10 or 11 years old, and continue through High School.
