If your teenager seems to be worrying about every little thing and is becoming overwhelmed with life, it is time to get them some help. Even if your teen was always a “worrier”, perhaps something has changed in his/her life to cause it to increase. Things such as hormonal changes, major life transitions such as graduating, moving or changing schools, death of a loved one, recent tragic news events, or an accident can cause anxiety to increase.
You may have tried everything to help your teen, but your suggestions are met with resistance. Teens will often say, “you don’t understand” or “that’s won’t work,”
We understand exactly what you and your teen are going through and you are not alone. Decades of research on anxiety and excessive worrying have proven that anxiety is a result of chemical imbalances in the brain. Using the most widely used empirically-based treatment called Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), we have proven techniques that work (often without medication) to reduce anxiety and worrying so that it is no longer negatively impacting your teens life. Treatment is often short-term and immediately effective. There is no reason to wait to schedule an initial consultation appointment with one of our experts to see if Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is the solution to your teen leading a happier and more content life.
