How Can Psychotherapy Help My Teen, and Me?

Psychotherapy provides a safe, validating relationship in which to gain insight, harness and develop strengths, and cultivate the coping skills you need to manage difficult emotions, relationships, and life circumstances. Effective psychotherapy is not simply talking about your problems. It is about working towards solutions for the things you can change, and learning to be accepting of those which lie beyond your control. In essence, the goal of psychotherapy is to help you “weather” the storms of life with a greater sense of calmness and confidence.
