Teen Counseling

Teen Counseling in Plano

Is your teen having behavioral problems or stress related to peer pressure?  Is your teen out of control? Raising teenagers can be as stressful on the parents as life is on the teen.  Sometimes nothing you try makes things better. It seems to drive them further away.  Your heart aches as you watch anxiety and sadness overtake your kids’ life. You want your teen to have healthy relationships, but they aren’t willing to listen to you.  Believe in Hope Counseling can bring hope back into your teen through teen counseling.

Today’s society places a lot of stress on teens and often they need help but do not know how to ask or seek it. Sometimes the signs are subtle but others the parents can clearly see help is needed and quickly.  Teens are often silenced by many social and family pressures.  Believe in Hope Counseling is here to provide teen counseling and put aside the stigma of asking for help.  We look to offer teens the opportunity to take part in their own counseling affording development of skills promoting independence. Therapy for adolescents and teens can help teens improve their overall functioning at home, school, within the family, and with peers/social environment.

We often hear many questions from teens and the parents of teens.  Why do I need to see a counselor? What will I talk about with the counselor? Will my therapist tell my parent(s) what I talk about in therapy?

The answers to these questions are obvious and we understand the hesitation.  We want you to know your teen will be handled gently and with love and a compassion that meets them in “their” world.
