A video message to parents of teens from our Director, Jaclyn Long:
This is a space just for you. Your therapist will create a space for you away from all expectations and demands.
A place where you can discover yourself, explore who you are and who you want to become.
A safe space where you can share your hopes, your dreams, your fears and anything that has been weighing heavily on your mind, body or heart.
Free from the pressure to perform or meet any type of external standards, we feel confident the therapists on our team can help you become more in touch with your true self, as you learn tools and deepen insights that can truly support you on your journey ahead.
There doesn’t need to be anything “wrong” with you at all. We are here to meet you just as you are, with open minds and caring hearts, to support you in your natural unfolding.
On the other hand, if you ARE dealing with something really challenging, we invite you to let us know, at your own pace and time, when you feel ready. We have lots of tools that can help you navigate the really big challenges you are facing, whether that is:
- Low self-esteem
- Feeling unworthy or not good enough
- Anxiety / Stress / Worry / Fears / Perfectionism
- Obsessions & Compulsions (OCD)
- Depression / Suicidal Thoughts
- Challenges Managing Emotion / Emotion Regulation
- Challenges with focusing & attention / ADHD
- Issues with friends, partners or siblings
- Grief & Loss
- Conflict and/or challenging dynamics at home
- Drug & Alcohol Dependence / Addiction
And we care about how you feel when you are here with us. So if the first therapist you meet with isn’t the right match, just let us know, ok? There are a few of us here who love working with teens. And it is REALLY important to us that you feel comfortable with the therapist you’re working with - that it feels like a good match for you.
We really hope you’ll take the first step of meeting with one of us for an initial meeting, to see if it feels right for you. We’ll work with you to create the experience that feels most nourishing, supportive and helpful for you. We hope we get the chance to do so!
