Therapy for Adolescents
Therapy for Adolescents, 55-60 minutes
I will work with motivated teens from ages 14-18 around issues of stress, anxiety, depression, relationships, and self-identity. In my work with minor clients I strive to meet the same standards of confidentiality and privacy that I offer my adult clients; this means that I ask the parents of the teens I work with to respect the boundaries of the therapeutic relationship.
In the event of possible harm I will communicate with parents to preserve the health and safety of the teen client. But in the course of normal events, therapy with teens is best accomplished when I can act as a one-way conduit: I welcome information and communication from parents, which I share with the teen, but I do not share material from the teen’s session with their parents unless I have the teen’s express permission.
