Teen Therapy at Hyland and Associates Counseling Services

Adolescence is a time of significant change and development, often accompanied by challenges that can be overwhelming for teens and their families. At Hyland and Associates Counseling Services in Orange County, California, we understand that teenagers face a unique set of pressures and issues. These can include:

  • Academic Stress: The pressure to perform well in school, prepare for college, and meet high expectations can lead to anxiety and burnout.
  • Social Pressures: Navigating friendships, peer relationships, and social media can create stress and feelings of inadequacy or isolation.
  • Family Dynamics: Changes within the family, such as divorce, remarriage, or sibling issues, can significantly impact a teen’s emotional well-being.
  • Mental Health Concerns: Issues like depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and self-harm are increasingly common among teens.
  • Substance Abuse: Experimentation with drugs and alcohol can lead to serious problems, including addiction.
  • Identity and Self-Esteem: Teens often struggle with their sense of identity, including gender, sexual orientation, and self-worth.
  • Trauma: Past traumas, such as abuse or the loss of a loved one, can have a lasting impact on a teen’s mental health.

How Hyland and Associates Can Help

Our experienced therapists are dedicated to helping teens navigate these challenges and develop healthy coping strategies. We offer a variety of interventions tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual.

  • Individual Therapy

Through one-on-one sessions, our therapists work with teens to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in a safe and supportive environment. We use evidence-based approaches, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), to help teens manage symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns.

  • Family Therapy

We believe in the importance of involving the whole family in the therapeutic process. Family therapy can improve communication, resolve conflicts, and strengthen relationships. Our therapists help families understand each other’s perspectives and work together to support their teen’s growth and well-being.

  • Group Therapy

Group therapy provides a space for teens to connect with peers who are facing similar challenges. Under the guidance of a skilled therapist, group sessions can help teens develop social skills, build self-esteem, and learn from the experiences of others.

  • Crisis Intervention

In cases of acute distress, such as suicidal thoughts or severe behavioral issues, our team is equipped to provide immediate support and intervention. We work closely with parents, schools, and other community resources to ensure the safety and well-being of the teen.

  • School-Based Interventions

We collaborate with schools to address issues that arise in the school setting and ensures that teens have access to the resources they need.
