Therapy for Teens / Adolescents

Welcome to Erena DiGonis Psychotherapy – Where Teens Find Strength and Hope

We understand that the teenage years can be a challenging and transformative phase of life. It’s a time when hormones, emotions, and moods can seem like a roller coaster ride, starting as early as nine years old and continuing throughout high school. During this period, the teenage brain is still rapidly developing, which significantly influences behavior and decision-making.

As a parent, you may be wondering how to best support your teenager during this intense period of change.

It’s essential to gain insight into how your teenager perceives the world to provide effective guidance and support.
Empowering Teens with Confidence and Resilience
Our experienced therapists are here to help your teenager navigate these turbulent waters. We provide effective tools and strategies to empower them, helping them build confidence, set boundaries, and cope with their complex emotions. Adolescents can sometimes feel like they’re spiraling out of control, leading to negative self-talk and overwhelming stress.
Our mission is to understand and address these challenges, offering a lifeline during these difficult moments.
Facing the Storm: Anxiety and Stress

Recognizing the Signs

As a parent, it’s essential to be conscious of any behavioral changes in your teenager. The symptoms of depression and emotional trauma can manifest differently in teens than in adults. They might be dealing with peer pressure at school, facing bullying in sports, or navigating a stressful family situation where they don’t feel safe or understood.

Be on the lookout for signs such as:

  • Persistent sadness, irritability, or tearfulness.
  • Changes in appetite or unexplained weight changes.
  • Decreased interest in activities they once enjoyed.
  • Fatigue and low energy levels.
  • Difficulty concentrating on tasks.
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness.
  • Altered sleep patterns.
  • Frequent complaints of boredom.
  • Discussions of suicide.
  • Withdrawal from friends or after-school activities.
  • Excessive screen time.
  • Declining school performance.
