Life can sometimes be tough for kids and teenagers. They can become lonely, angry, or depressed. They might act out at home or at school, have difficulty paying attention, or become distant, isolated, and have trouble making friends. If you are concerned about your child, psychotherapy can help.
At Portland Mindfulness Therapy, we provide counseling to adolescents (ages 12 to 17). Psychotherapy teaches youth how to understand their needs and emotions, and express them in appropriate ways. It empowers kids to develop healthy relationships, positive coping skills, good self-esteem, to become happier and more resilient, and to help them confidently achieve their goals.
By learning mindfulness skills, kids improve their abilities to pay attention, tolerate stress and effectively solve problems, and develop a more friendly attitude towards themselves and others. Psychotherapy is useful in treating issues of depression, anxiety, anger, behavioral problems, problems at school, ADD/ADHD, arguing and fighting, low self-esteem, trauma, and abuse.
