It comes as no surprise that teenagers have a lot going on when they’re dealing with so much emotional and physical strife in their daily lives.
Some teens are simply dealing with the difficulties that everyone faces in those formative years. Others, however, have serious behavioral problems and aggression to contend with. These types of behaviors are especially common after a teen has experienced something traumatic, like sexual assault, a death in the family, or an abortion.
Whatever the case may be, teens facing problems like these could use an appointment with a licensed professional counselor to deal with their mental disorders, seek out therapeutic options, or simply to have someone to talk to. As a Cherry Hill teen psychologist, I am proud to offer emotional, counseling, and general mental health support to teens experiencing mental health issues and other crises of adolescence.
When choosing a counseling or mental health facility for teens, one of the first things to consider is how long a particular practice has been in the business helping teens. My practice specializes in teenage therapy and counseling, so you know your child is getting the best care they deserve and find relief for their mental health woes.
Some of our areas of expertise include:
● Anger and aggression
● Substance abuse
● Mood disorders
● Oppositional defiant behaviors
In addition, I have extensive experience working in residential treatment settings as well as private practice. In my work with the NJ Department of Child Protection and Permanency, I have developed a deep understanding of adolescents, the issues they face, and how to help them improve their relationships with family and friends.
Every teenager is unique and will have different needs from their counselor. I have experience with all kinds of emotional and psychological issues commonly affecting teens, from eating disorders and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, to depression and ADHD. No matter what your child needs, we will make that connection with them that lets them know they’re not alone.
