Therapy for Teens

Most of us can agree that growing up is a process full of trials and errors. The challenges teenagers face today on top of the challenges we faced yesterday have created an environment that makes puberty even more difficult to comprehend.

As a parent or guardian, your first role is to protect and promote the wellbeing of your child. Therapy for teenage depression and cognitive behavioral therapy for teens is on the rise as many adults realize their adolescent requires a specialized approach to their mental health.

Difficult teens don’t always indicate a poorly behaved child—it might just be a cry for help from a troubled young person instead. If you’re looking for a child therapist in Miami, our primary practitioner, Anna Marchenko, LMHC, M.A., and Ed.M., can help.

Our Innovative Approach

Adolescents have unique needs from that of adults, and we recognize the special care and mindfulness which must be curated specifically to each individual teen seeking help.

While there are numerous types of therapy for individuals, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for teens can be a highly effective form of therapy for teenage depression, anxiety, stress, sleep issues, trauma, familial challenges, and more. Utilizing CBT has been effective in reducing stress, coping with challenges in day-to-day life, in relationships, dealing with grief, and many other challenges that individuals face

We utilize a blended therapeutic method that utilizes the benefits of CBT, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), and hypnotherapy for an effective treatment that truly uproots problematic thought processes and behaviors that are limiting your child’s potential.
