High School Students
Adolescence is a time of challenges not only for the high school student but for the family as well. Pressure to achieve and a desire for independence can be complicated by new family arrangements, divorce, death, illness or loss of family income. Individual therapy is conducted to support high school students so they can achieve their personal goals, alleviate stress and become active members of the family and community.
College brings many new challenges. Often, students are living on their own, making choices independent of their parents. There is increasing pressure to achieve because the job market is more competitive. The expense of college can add stress as well. Counseling sessions provide a place for the students to express concerns, and focus on creating new coping skills to deal with any anxiety or depression.
