Teen Therapy in Berkeley
Is This You?
You’re having a really tough right now and you can’t talk to your parents about it.
And your friends are no help either. Maybe it’s the pressure of the party culture at your school, or continually feeling targeted or left out from TikTok and Snapchat.
Maybe it’s the pressure of college apps looming and worry over making good enough grades to cut it.
Perhaps you just really want to talk to someone frankly and openly about sex, about friendships that sometimes feel toxic, about how hard it feels to be not yet an adult but still having to live at home. Teen therapy might be right for you.
Being a teenager is HARD.
Let’s face it; It can be wonderful and amazing at times, but there’s a reason why most adults will tell you, “You just need to survive high school. It gets better.”
While that may be true in some ways, at Evergreen, we want to give you the space to talk and tools to use so you can thrive as much as possible in these last few years before leaving home. We don’t want the high school years to be something you simply “survive.”
What Our Teen Therapy Offers:
By working with a therapist at Evergreen, you will have a safe, confidential, and supportive space to work through the issues that are making you anxious, sad, or even depressed.
With teen therapy, you’ll have someone whose job it is to help you feel better and more capable of dealing with it all.
While we do need your parents’ permission to start counseling with you if you’re under 18, you will have privacy and a therapist who’s sole job is to help you figure out what’s going on and help you feel better.
We’ll work with your parents to talk through the finances, the forms they need to complete, and answer all those other logistical questions.
Relief From Anxiety, Depression, Stress, And More:
Though teen therapy doesn’t come with guaranteed results, by working with an Evergreen Counselor we can possibly help you:
- Learn to manage the anxiety that school and your social life is causing;
- Help you address that general sadness and/or numbness you seem to feel each day;
- Find new coping skills for dealing with test, performance, or social anxiety;
- Help you get clearer on what path you may want to pursue in college or post-graduation;
- And develop new tools for more effectively dealing with your parents and siblings and life at home right now.
The Next Steps for Teen Therapy:
Truly, beginning therapy can have a profound and transformative impact on nearly every aspect of your life.
Here at Evergreen, we know that choosing the “right” therapist can sometimes feel overwhelming and confusing and we want to help you make this decision and feel totally at ease about booking a session with us which is why we encourage you to check out our clinician bios, our FAQ’s, the kind words people have said about working with us, and our blog.
