Relate Family Therapy and Counseling knows that the world is a scary place for teens. From high expectations placed on them to school lockdowns, there is so much to navigate that can lead to feeling like anxiety has control over their lives. A calm space to process these fears and worries can help your teen regulate their emotions, confront their anxiety, and take back control so they can get back to actively engaging in their lives.
Has your teen expressed a high amount of fear or worry? They might be exhibiting more anger or frustration, having trouble concentrating, or complain of frequent headaches, stomachaches, or fatigue. These symptoms might result in them avoiding interactions and isolating, which can affect school performance, school attendance, as well as friendships and other activities and relationships. With help, the source of this anxiety can be addressed so your teen can find relief and reassurance that these feelings and this experience can change.
