Teens

WORKING WITH YOUR TEEN

Teenage years can be a tumultuous time for many. Our goal is to support your family, offer tools and coping strategies to help open the doors of communication.  The teenage brain goes through some natural stages during maturation and it can be difficult for a parent to discern normal adolescent behavior from clinical diagnoses.  Hormonal and physical changes can have an impact on mental health as well as a overall well being. We assess the need for habit and dietary changes as well as the potential benefit from medical treatment strategies.  Professional treatment can have a dramatic improvement on a teen’s life and help them as they navigate the path to adulthood. Our methodology is to work with the patient in an integrated and personalized way so that we design a treatment that incorporates not just psychoanalysis and medication, but a roadmap for healthy habits for overall well being.

 

Some common issues we can help with:

 

  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
