The teen and young adult years are a period of profound transitions and can be difficult for everyone—a time when it is common to feel anxiety, stress, depression, or self-doubt. Therapy can provide strategies for coping with these feelings, as well as healthy approaches for improving self-esteem, developing one’s unique identity, or managing anger or compulsive behavior.
At Wellspring, our aim is to create a safe and therapeutic environment in which our younger clients feel seen and empowered. Working with a compassionate therapist can help teens learn to express themselves appropriately and improve communication skills, gaining tools that can carry them into the college-age years and beyond.
We offer a variety of therapies to match the needs of our teen and young adult clients. One approach we offer is Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). CBT helps people identify and challenge negative thinking patterns and irrational beliefs that increase anxiety. A highly-structured, shorter-term approach than some therapies, individuals who use it can expect fairy quick results. It is an excellent choice for those dealing with chronic worry, depression, or self-harming behaviors. Young adults who work with CBT gain concrete strategies for coping with challenging emotions and situations, which leads to increased confidence.
Boys and young men may have an especially difficult time managing the emotions and the stresses that emerge with their transition into adulthood. Honoring the process of male identity formation gives young men the support they need to define masculinity, chart a course for their lives, and make good choices. Wellspring therapists see boys as whole and complex individuals and we honor both their private and public selves. This provides a safe space that lets them open up and embrace their futures as balanced, stable young men.
Whether through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), family therapy, or parenting support, our therapists will create a supportive environment and work collaboratively with your family to develop a plan that works for you. We understand the daily struggles and challenges teens and young adults face and are committed to giving them new skills and communication tools that will help them thrive.
