How Peaks Counseling Makes an Impact
Counseling for teenagers in this day and age is of vital importance. Teenagers go through many different and stressful transitions and at Peaks Counseling I am here to support your teen through these tough times. I understand that pressure of academics, conflicts with peers, and social media all have a tremendous impact on our teens. That’s why I strongly believe it’s important to have someone to help guide them and to provide teens with a safe place to discuss their feelings. Depression and anxiety is extremely high among kids 12-18 years. Helping them to feel confident, happy, and successful is my mission! I take an approach that is unique to each teen that walks through the door. I make sure I get to know who they are, what their likes/dislikes are, and I cater treatment around what works best for each individual.
- Talk Therapy – this is a primary means of counseling teenagers. Through open communication and providing a safe/non-judgmental atmosphere, this allows teens to feel comfortable discussing their personal thoughts. This also allows for a chance for the therapist to provide guidance, insight, and suggestions.
- Teaching Coping Skills – all therapy sessions provide an excellent opportunity to teach teens how to handle difficult emotions and feelings they may have. It is the hope that I can provide a wide array of “tools” that teens can use when they are dealing with problems.
- CBT (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy) – this is a technique that helps teens to challenge negative beliefs and thoughts. I teach them how to understand more about their thoughts and how to change patterns for the better.
