Teen & young adult relationships

Relationships can be difficult to navigate when also handling mental health issues. On top of that, unhealthy relationships can create or exacerbate conditions, making it difficult for teens and young adults to cope or find a safe space.

It’s important to identify when relationships are suffering because of internal issues, or when one becomes unhealthy or even abusive.

Teen & young adult relationship treatment

Developing and maintaining healthy relationships is one of the biggest outcomes we work towards in our client’s mental health treatment plans. Many therapies can help improve self-awareness and contribute to healthier relationships.

Cognitive behavioral therapy helps teens and young adults better understand their thoughts and feelings. They can begin to recognize patterns within themselves and become more comfortable with who they are. Increased confidence is a natural result of CBT and serves as a foundation for better relationships in the future.
