  • Teen depression is a serious mental health problem that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest in activities. It affects how your teenager thinks, feels and behaves, and it can cause emotional, functional and physical problems.
  • Adolescence is always an unsettling time, with the many physical, emotional, psychological and social changes that accompany this stage of life.
  • Unrealistic academic, social, or family expectations can create a strong sense of rejection and can lead to deep disappointment. When things go wrong at school or at home, teens often overreact.
  • Adolescent depression is increasing at an alarming rate.

There are thought to be many causes of depression. Some may be: 

  • Traumatic Life Event
  • Social Situation/Family Circumstances
  • Genetics/Biology
  • Medical Conditions
  • Medications/Illegal Drugs.

Psychotherapy provides teens an opportunity to explore events and feelings that are painful or troubling to them. 

Psychotherapy also teaches them coping skills.

I am a Cognitive-behavioral therapist. I have helped hundreds of teens change negative patterns of thinking resulting in desired behavior. My straightforward style is what makes the difference.
