SUPPORT FOR YOUR FAMILY
We provide therapy for adolescents and families in NYC
With growth comes a certain degree of conflict, and therefore, life for adolescents and their families can be a turbulent period.
Adolescence is often a transitional developmental period associated with growth and conflict. This is when we really begin to develop our sense of self, emerge as individuals, and move closer to determining who we are and how we fit into the world. Pressure from peers, school, family, and social media all pile on and can feel overwhelming for teens. In the midst of all of this, our capacity for reasoning and thinking through things rationally is continuing to develop through adolescence. From a biological standpoint, it’s natural for teens to respond emotionally and at times act impulsively.
Therapy for adolescents and families provides an opportunity to enter a safe, therapeutic space where you can explore your individuality and learn skills to effectively identify emotions and navigate relationships.

How does therapy for adolescents and families work?
Adolescence can be challenging not only for teenagers but also parents, with both parties often feeling unheard and misunderstood. Oftentimes, there’s conflict and difficulty surrounding the struggle for autonomy and independence. What’s too much, or too little? How do we navigate these conversations effectively and ensure everyone’s voice is heard?
In working with families, it’s important to understand and acknowledge the different needs and wants that adolescents and their parents may have.
Types of family therapy include: family systems therapy, aimed at understanding how individual members’ actions are impacting the whole; and structural family therapy, which digs into family structure, subsystems, and boundaries that are impacting the wellbeing of the family. Family therapists may also draw from therapeutic techniques such as CBT, DBT, mindfulness, attachment theory, and insight-oriented techniques.
