Friendship Difficulties

Many teens struggle with making an keeping friends. It is hard to watch your teen struggle with friendships. They likely do not want your advice, yet seem to be getting more and more upset, withdrawn, angry, isolated or depressed.

Social skills training is very effective at helping teens who struggle with peers. In combination with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for the anxiety component, your teen will find socializing with others to be easier and more natural. Through learning conflict- management strategies specific to teens, their relationships will improve and it will open the door to more opportunities to meet people. Therapy is usually short-term and your teen will experience success rather quickly. Even if your teen is not interested in coming to to see us, we can meet with you to discuss your concerns and give you advice as to how to best help your child.
