Teen Therapy in Asheville, NC


Life as a teen can feel overwhelming and as their parent, you see it all. Now that they are a teen, their life has gotten more complex. It’s not just a bruised knee on the playground.

Watching your teen struggle is hard. You attempt to communicate about what’s going on for them, but you feel like you’re failing to get through. Perhaps you find yourself thinking, “I wish I could fix it and make the pain go away but I can’t?” The most frustrating part is that when you try to help, it feels like it makes things worse.

Stressed, Worried, Overwhelmed? Is Your Teen Going Through Any Of The Following Challenges?

Do any of the following look familiar?

  • They often feel down or lonely, stuck feeling bad about themselves
  • They often focus on when they failed on something, constantly thinking about the goal they missed at soccer or the test they didn’t get an A on.
  • They sometimes cope with intense feelings with self-harm or cutting
  • They don't stay connected with their friends or don’t have any motivation to do things and instead prefer social media
  • They sometimes have intense anxiety attacks including body sensations like chest pain, dizziness, or shortness of breath
  • You know that they are struggling but they won't (or can't) tell you why

The teen years can be an overwhelming time for your Teen, for you, and the entire family. Even when they are having a bad day, you love them unconditionally. It’s possible for your teen to feel better.

It’s possible for your teen to feel better. Imagine a life where they could...

Navigate Life’s Challenges With Ease

Teen therapy helps your teen rise above their challenges and start moving towards their ideal life with less stress and more calm.

Your teen will get the tools they need to uncover strengths and ways to manage their stress.

Even if they are not usually comfortable opening up, teen therapy may be able to help them…

  • Feel motivated and take action
  • Communicate even when they are feeling big emotions
  • Form and maintain fulfilling relationships

I've helped teens struggling with constant self doubt, overwhelm, and worry find their way to feeling strong, confident, and free to be themselves. They learn to identify their emotions, practice self care, and confront life challenges with confidence.

How Teen Therapy Works

Teen therapy consists of 50-minute sessions which are either with the teen on their own or with both you and your teen. Here’s how it will work step-by-step:

  1. Let’s have a first session all together so that I can hear from both you and your teen about the challenges you are facing.
  2. Next, I’ll have weekly, one-on-one sessions with your teen. I provide a safe, accepting space so that your teen will feel comfortable sharing what’s bothering them.
  3. During sessions, we’ll set goals for therapy so that we’ll know how to measure progress. Your teen will start building self confidence and coping strategies
  4. Success will be witnessing your teen become happy, healthy, and live a full life.

Research shows that teen therapy can positively change their thinking, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors. It can help your teen let go of what’s holding them back.
