Counseling for Teens

Counseling for Teens San Jose Therapy

Therapy and Counseling for Teens
and 20-Somethings in San Jose

I provide therapy/counseling for teenagers and young adults ages 13 and up in my San Jose office which is conveniently located near Willow Glen and Campbell. This can include individual and family therapy/counseling. I especially love working with older teens and young adults. This is an exciting time of life, full of transitions and emotional growth. Most of my teen and 20-something clients really benefit from having a positive adult (who isn’t their parent) to talk to.

 

Teen Counseling can help adolescents with:

  • Managing stress
  • Making healthy choices
  • Balancing the pressures of high expectations
  • Making decision about school and career goals
  • Communicating with parents and creating a peaceful family environment
  • Increasing impulse control, considering consequences and make good decisions
  • Confronting substance abuse and maintaining sobriety
  • Coping with divorce
  • Navigating dating relationships and sexuality
  • Improving school performance
  • Processing grief
  • Managing difficult emotions

 

Parents of Teenagers:

Parents are still an important part of their teenager child’s life. Please plan to be involved in therapy. This may mean attending family sessions with your child or meeting with me separately to help me understand your child and family dynamics. I prefer the first session is with the parent(s) only (without your teen). This allows me to take a family history, explain how I work with adolescents, and ultimately allows you to decide if I am the right person to help your child. I realize that parents place a lot of trust in me and I think it’s important that we meet before you bring your child in. Please call me if you have any questions about my approach.

 

Please note that I do not have new client appointments available in the late afternoon or evening at this time.
