Therapy for Teenage Anxiety, Depression and more

Your latest fight with your teen makes MMA look like a walk in the park. Another day, another round of yelling, eye rolling, and door slamming. You feel annoyed, frustrated, irritated, sad, and afraid…very, very afraid.

You think back to your teen’s carefree elementary school days — with big smiles, laughter, and watching your kid run up and down the soccer field. Now, your teen is sullen, snappy, and moody. They’ve always got their face in their phone, hoodie covering their head, headphones blocking you out. They hardly leave their room and their grades are sliding. They doesn’t even seem to have friends. You’re not sure, but you’re wondering if these could be symptoms of depression.

Help for Troubled Teens in Lutz, FL

You’ve done everything you know to do. You’ve tried talking to them, lecturing them, punishing them. You’ve asked for advice from friends and have asked a beloved coach or youth pastor to talk with your teen. But things seem to keep getting worse and you’re feeling hopeless and helpless. It’s gotten to the point where now your teen is complaining of headaches, stomach aches, and the dark circles under their eyes are proof that they’re definitely not sleeping. You’re worried because you’ve heard that these can be symptoms for anxiety in teenagers. Is that what’s going on??

Alina Kein, Intern

Being a teen girl is harder today than it’s ever been.  I’ve seen this in the non-profit that I helped run that served at-risk teens and I see it in the teens who come into Harper Therapy.  The pressure of intense emotions, peer drama, academic stress, and conflict at home build until they reach an almost explosive point.  I am passionate about helping your teen daughter find her calm and her place in her world, recognizing her value and the importance of meaningful connection.
