Changes in hormones, pressure to perform in school, and struggles with social acceptance are common concerns in adolescent development. However, these issues sometimes become overwhelming to the point where they interfere with many aspects of a teen’s life and create excess stress, anxiety, or depression.

It can be difficult to distinguish typical teenage behavior and normal adolescent development from more severe changes in mood and behavior that warrant professional attention. If your adolescent is experiencing any of the following symptoms or behaviors, he/she would benefit from seeing one of our trained therapists:

  • Frequent or prolonged changes in mood (i.e. sadness, anxiety, irritability, anger)
  • Withdrawal from family, friends, or activities
  • Talking or ruminating about death or wanting to die
  • Self-harm 
  • Changes in appetite, sudden weight loss or weight gain
  • Difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or increased sleep
  • Identity concerns/LGBTQ+
  • Drug/Alcohol use or other risk behaviors
