    Your teen is stressed & overwhelmed.

    They are carrying the weight of the world.

    You want so badly for your teen to take a break from the worry, and get to enjoy being young.

    You’ve tried to help them manage their stress and emotions, but nothing seems to work and you’re desperate for a long term solution.

    Counseling Can Help Your Teen Start Enjoying Their Life.

    The unique challenges today’s youth face can be managed with the right tools and techniques. It’s our goal at Resolve Counseling to set teenagers up for success by teaching them how to be emotionally intelligent individuals that feel prepared to manage themselves in an unmanageable time and world.

    When teens start counseling at Resolve Counseling, they will spend time working with our therapist to build a relationships. The therapist will introduce them to the 4 Big Skills and teach them about the effects of stress on their mind. Teenagers will also have a chance to identify strategies that are unique to them, and managing whatever challenges they face. Parents will receive the same information related to how stress effects our minds, and learn about why teenagers might be behaving and responding the way they do.

    Teenagers usually report feeling better at the end of the first session after learning about how stress effects the brain. They report being hopeful that they will be able to find strategies to manage whatever situation they are facing, and report feeling understood by our therapist. Most commonly, teenagers report that they no longer feel crazy because they understand what is happening to their mind, and who to control it so it no longer controls them. Parents also report feeling relieved after learning there is a framework for understanding what their teen is going through, and for responding to their teen when they are under stress.

    When teens are done working with Resolve Counseling they feel more hopeful for the future, and confident in their ability to manage themselves and their emotions. Parents and teens also feel more capable of handling stress and conflict and navigate the parent-teen relationship.
