JOURNEY TO EMOTIONAL HEALING
As adolescents develop, they are in a heavy brain development process that impacts their social skills and emotional intelligence to lead healthy, happy lives with appropriate decision-making skills. When adolescents experience emotions or engage in behaviors that interfere with their happiness and ability to thrive, they may benefit from meeting with a therapist to regulate their emotions. After all, that part of their brain is not fully developed yet.
Teen Talk helps teenagers navigate their feelings on their journey of emotional awareness and responsibility. As a systems-based practice, our treatment is inclusive of all systems teenagers are apart of.
