Accepting New Clients
When it comes to adolescents, society and Hollywood tend to perpetuate the popular stereotypes that go along with them—that they are everything from irresponsible party animals to alienated rebels plagued with teenage angst.
While there may be a grain of truth to these stereotypes, there is a larger component at work. Anxiety is a very real condition for many teens as the pressures of coming of age, going off to college, and even laying the groundwork for the rest of their lives can cause true emotional turmoil. At the office of Mars & Venus Counseling Center, we’re here to help. We take a client- centered, collaborative approach to therapy and focus on the unique issues facing adolescents. Our goal is to address the problems facing your child and empower him or her with insights and strategies that will help affect positive change in their life.
While it’s natural for adolescents to experience anxiety to varying degrees at one time or other, some are unable to manage even the most routine aspects of life. Many cope by avoiding, because anything new is potentially threatening. As the academic, employment, and social functioning pressures increase later in life, the anxious young adult finds himself struggling to function independently.
As with most emotional and physical conditions, the sooner the disorder is addressed, the better the outcome. At the office of Mars & Venus Counseling Center, our compassionate professionals provide the latest treatments to reduce anxiety, in addition to using age-appropriate coping and adaption techniques to meet the specific needs of older adolescents and young adults with anxiety disorders. For more information on the full spectrum of services we provide, give us a call today.
