Support for Stressed Out Teens

Helping high achieving teens stress less and find balance

Did you know that a lot of successful, high-achieving people struggle with self-doubt? Even honor-roll students and star athletes sometimes feel like they don’t really deserve the awards they have earned, or fear they won’t be able to keep up their momentum. No matter how smart, skilled, or gifted she is, your teen might secretly feel like she is just faking it and hoping no one notices. She may feel overwhelmed by pressure to meet her own as well as others’ expectations. She may have a hard time figuring out how to be a good friend without feeling like she has to take on the pain of everyone around her.

When your wonderful, talented, creative teen is having a hard time and feeling anxious or depressed, it can be really scary for you and her. If your teen is struggling with stress, self-doubt, or navigating relationships, therapy can help.

Teen life can be tough

Honor roll, varsity sports, college applications, and social media - there’s a lot going on in a teen’s life! As a kid challenged by self-doubt, anxiety, and high expectations for herself, your teen may be feeling:

  • Stressed
  • Overwhelmed by everything she has to do
  • Like no one gets it because they don't seem to struggle like she does
  • Unsure how to stand up for herself without losing friends
  • Worried that she's a fake and she won't be able to keep this up forever

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.

As her therapist, I can help your teen regain her confidence and feel more balanced

I'm Amy, and I'm a therapist who can help your teen learn to love herself even when she gets a B on her calc test.

I love the creativity, passion, and insight that high achieving and creative teens bring to the world. As your teen's therapist, I will help her identify and develop her strengths to help her find balance in her life. We will work together to understand her self-critical parts and help find another way of seeing herself.

How can therapy help?

Therapy can provide the support your teen need to help you find her way towards a better life. It's hard to see her struggle now, but therapy can help her find confidence and feel more prepared to launch into adulthood.

Therapy can help your teen:

  • Be more kind and compassionate toward herself
  • Set healthy boundaries that strengthen relationships
  • Stress less and feel more calm and confident
  • Feel less self-critical and more self-accepting

The teen years are no joke, and life can really suck sometimes but the good news is that it's possible to feel better. And I have the experience to help you.
