How Does Teen Therapy Work?

Teenagers undergo major psychological, emotional, and social shifts as they navigate adolescence. This stage of development may cause stress, mood swings, anxiety, low self-esteem, interpersonal conflicts, and family issues. While teens need their parents more than they know, the particular family dynamics at work might make it challenging for teens to open up to and communicate openly with their parents about the challenging experiences they are navigating on a daily basis. Our teen specialists provide a safe, nurturing space for teens to explore and address these specific challenges as they move through this formative phase of their lives.

Our Therapy Modalities

The teen specialists at Mindful Child & Family Therapy use evidence-based therapeutic approaches that deliver results and promote wellness. We implement the following modalities in our sessions:

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) helps teens manage their emotions and work through trauma through mindfulness, interpersonal development, and emotional regulation tools.
  • Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an approach that encourages healthy emotional regulation by helping teenagers identify their feelings, adjust negative behaviors, and change unhelpful thought patterns.
  • Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy focuses on Self-Leadership to empower teens to identify and manage their emotions.
  • Art therapy and music therapy emphasize expression and creativity to help teens process thoughts and emotions in a safe, creative, and interactive way.
