Counseling for Teens

Being a teenager is hard.

Pressures such as fitting in, navigating their first breakup, or bullying, can drastically impact their lives at home and in the classroom. On top of that, teens are expected to make big life decisions surrounding college, careers, or whether college is even the right path for them.
