Teenagers experience a lot of stress in today’s fast-paced, demanding, and media-saturated world.
It is difficult to determine if your teen’s worries and fears are “normal” or may actually constitute a specific anxiety disorder. In working with a therapist, you will learn that anxiety disorders are very treatable with strategies that teach you and your teen about how anxiety works and what to do to combat it. Your teen will learn about the thought-body-behavior chain associated with anxiety and gain tools such as relaxation, gradual exposure to fears, and coping thoughts. With the guidance of a therapist, you and your teen will develop confidence and success in tackling worries and fears.
