Therapy for Adolescents


Adolescence is a transitional period in a young person’s life which can be a perfect storm of identity confusion, sexuality, social/relationship problems, mental health struggles like mood and anxiety disorders, and fueled by uncontrollable changes in hormones.

It can be a tumultuous and difficult time.

At Petrichor Counseling, LLC, our therapists gear their services toward helping adolescents gain a better understanding of themselves and the world in which they live.

Using goal-oriented strategies to assist with problem-solving and manage distressing symptoms, we incorporate treatment modalities proven to help strengthen coping skills and improve well-being leading to a balanced and satisfying life.
