Adolescence typically describes the years between ages 13 and 19 and can be considered the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood. This stage often brings an exponential amount of exciting changes and also challenges as self-exploration, identity formation, and discovery occur. Many teens face tough choices regarding peer pressure, academic success, sexuality, alcohol and drugs, and family conflict, making this stage in life formative and unique.
At Coastal Wellness and Counseling, LLC, we meet teens where they are emotionally and developmentally while giving them a safe, non-judgmental space to explore their feelings, beliefs and behaviors. We support them in creating a positive support network for themselves and also help them identify better coping skills to manage their life with greater confidence and joy.
