Therapy for Teenagers Experiencing Symptoms of Anxiety, Depression, Low Self-Esteem
COUNSELING FOR TEENAGERS
Therapy to Help Your Anxious or Depressed Teen
There’s been a change in your teenager’s behavior. You child is isolating in their bedroom all the time. They aren’t pursuing their sports, academics, or friendships like they used to. They are moody. It feels like you are walking on eggshells around your own house. You try not to say too much to them, afraid that the wrong word will set your teen off into a spell of anger or depression.
You are worried about your kid.
Being a teenager is hard. Teenagers feel anxious, alone, and depressed. They often need an unrelated adult who can listen and help them figure things out.
Teen counseling can help.

COMMON REASONS TEENAGERS BEGIN COUNSELING
Help for Anxious and Depressed Teenagers in Tualatin, Lake, Oswego, Tigard, and the Portland Metro Area
While everyone faces challenges or struggles in their life, adolescence can be an intense time for a teenager to navigate. Some of the more common reasons teenagers come in for counseling include:
Conflict with Parents
COUNSELING CAN HELP TEENS LEARN TO REGULATE THEIR EMOTIONS
What Are the Benefits of My Teenager Seeing a Counselor?
I understand the amount of anxiety and stress that teenagers are feeling. And you, as their parent, are anxious to see your kid happy.
Having worked many years with teenagers and young adults, I have been able to help many to develop greater confidence and peace. Teenagers have received help for their anxiety, depression, and low self-confidence. They have grown to become happier with themselves and more pleasant to those around them.
THE WELLSPACE COUNSELING APPROACH TO TEENAGE THERAPY
How Our Counselor Helps Teen
I want to help teens thrive during this stage of life and count these years as some of their best! I do this by providing a warm atmosphere. I help teenagers to be themselves.
We will work to discover the negative messages that rattle around in your teenager's brain. We focus on the strengths that your child already has inside of them. Then, we begin the work of replacing those negative messages with messages of what is true about your kid.
Parents will receive opportunities to set up appointments for "check-ins". These times will not provide confidential information from the teenager’s counseling. But you may receive thoughts and ideas on how to interact and be supportive of your child's growth.
WHAT IS KEEPING YOU FROM STARTING YOUR TEEN IN COUNSELING?
Your schedule is packed. Your teenagers schedule is packed. And you are afraid of what your teenager will say if you bring up the topic. Will they get upset at you? Will they reject the idea before you even have a chance to finish the sentence? What if your kid doesn’t like the counselor and it is a waste of time? Is there a way for your teenager to meet the counselor before actually committing?
These are valid questions.
At Wellspace Counseling, we provide the flexibility of online counseling to help those with busy schedules. This could be a natural fit for you teenager. Many have become comfortable with communicating virtually or through online services.
We also provide a free 15-minute phone consultation. Your teenager can meet with our counselor to ask questions and become known. From there, your teen can decide and begin the journey to mental and emotional wellness with our counselor.
