If You’ve Noticed Your Teen Is:
- Acting out, rebelling, crying constantly, or self-harming
- Hibernating in their bedroom unless food is involved
- Having trouble focusing in school and hiding their report cards from you
- Unable to cope with recent changes in family dynamics, like a separation or divorce, the loss of a loved one, a new baby or stepparent
- Struggling to make friends, shying away from participating in group activities OR overly dependent in relationships
- Acting quiet and disengaged about their days, which makes you wonder if they’re getting bullied or dealing with peer pressure at school
- Lacking self-worth, and either drowning in insecurities or adopting a “don’t care” attitude because they’re fearful of failing
…teen therapy can help them build supportive relationships, learn to take responsibility for their actions and words, and develop crucial leadership skills that’ll crank up their self-esteem and improve their readiness to become a young adult.
They Won’t Get Judged, But They Will Get:
figuring out the underlying problem and why they feel the way they do, so they have the self-awareness, tools and DESIRE to build positive habits.
Proof that they have power
within themselves to make better decisions, so they can wield their growing independence with intelligence.
that’ll let them engage, self-express, relate to and trust others, so they can create healthy relationships that offer emotional security.
Encouraging small steps that get real results
so they feel like they’re being rewarded for making the effort instead of being told what to do.
And fun homework
so figuring things out is a process they enjoy instead of suffer through.
The truth is: Most of the teens who walk through my door just want to feel better, fit in, and make sense of life. They feel misunderstood, ignored, and sometimes alone.
My goal is to make them feel at ease, safe and supported. I want them to know that they can tell me anything, and I’m here to listen to them…not get them into trouble.
“I called Suntia and needed help immediately for my daughter. My daughter was working with another counselor and she had not made any progress. After the initial session with Suntia, I saw a difference in my daughter. For the first time, I had hope that my daughter would be ok!” ~ H. B.
Best Of All, You’ll Get To Stay Involved.
Before and after every session, you’ll have a chance to speak with me to review new issues at home and update me on the progress you’re seeing.
This collaborative approach helps me tailor sessions, so your teen gets quicker results! You will learn how to best support them through therapy, and that means that you’ll grow closer throughout the process.
Sometimes, you may feel like everything falls on your shoulders. But it doesn’t have to be that way. When you’re trying to help them, let me help you.
