Restoring Hope, Happiness, & Connected Family Relationships

 

 

Parents, Have You Found Yourselves Asking Any of the Following Questions:

  • Is this just a phase or something more serious?

  • Where is all this anger coming from? 

  • Why is my teen so sad all the time?

  • Why does my teen get so upset when she can't get things 'perfect'? 

  •  Why won't my teen let me in so I can help?

  • Will I ever be able to have conversations with my teen that don't end in him yelling and threatening?

  • Will I feel safe in my own home again?

  • What happened to my teen's motivation? He used to get such good grades and now it's a battle to get my teen to do their homework. 

  • What else is there that I can do to help my teen?

If you have asked any of these questions or questions similar to these about your teen, you are not alone. Many parents ask the same questions about their teens. Many parents are looking for answers on how to help them find happiness again. At Katy Teen & Family Counseling, our teen counselors and family therapists specialize specifically in working with teens and families with struggles just like y may be experiencing.

Today's Teens

 

The challenges teens face today are complex and different than previous generations. Teen depression, teen anxiety, teen ADHD, and other emotional and behavioral struggles experienced by today's teens have significantly increased in the past decade.  Teen anxiety and teen depression are recognized as being the leading cause of emotional and behavioral distress for youth.  Since 2010, teen suicide rates have spiked 56% and is now the 2nd leading cause of death among youth between the ages of 15 and 24.

Watching teens struggle with seemingly insurmountable challenges can leave parents and family members feelings fearful, powerless, and they are left with their hearts aching. After exhausting all their ideas to help their teens cope, parents can start to feel discouraged and experience feelings of hopelessness.

 

There is a way through these challenge for your teen and family.  Let the experience of our specialists in teen counseling and family therapy help you navigate this healing journey.  You have made the first step by exploring therapy options for your teen. Now, let us help you take the next step.

Finding a teen therapist and family counselor to assist in your family's path back to healing can be daunting and even uncomfortable.  By contacting Katy Teen & Family Counseling, you will be greeted by one of our experienced and caring therapists which helps make that first phone call more comfortable. We will help you assess the right teen counselor and family therapist for your teen and family. 

The "Why" We Provide Teen Counseling & Family Therapy 

 

 

There are several reasons why we have chosen to dedicate our careers to providing therapy to teens and families: 

Removing the Obstacles of Today For a Brighter Tomorrow

 

The struggles that teens face today, if not addressed, will follow them into adulthood. We help teens make changes that will remove obstacles in their way when transitioning into adulthood. Removing these obstacles often results in happiness and success for the teen. A happy and successful teen often results in a happy and successful adult. We want the teens we work with to successfully transition into adulthood because they have addressed and resolved the problems of today.

We Find Higher Success Rates in Working With Teens

 

We experience a higher success rate with teens. Research supported therapy approaches like CBT, EMDR, and Neurofeedback work well with most teens. Not only are they effective, but they also usually take less time than the same approaches with adults. It is rewarding to partner with a teen and their family and see them grow, change, and find happiness and connected family relationships. As a teen counselor and family therapist, this is what it's all about.

The Strength & Power of the Family in Therapy

 

There is strength and power in the family unit. The 'secret' ingredients for long term success for the teen often reside with the family. ​When we have parents that are willing to make changes, along with the teen as the teen makes changes, it is common that we accomplish the teen and family's goals. 

 

Not only do the teen and family often accomplish the goals, now the family has evolved with the teen and chances of long-term change increases. The teen has a support team that has grown along with them and can help the teen maintain the changes.​​

Helping Teens & Families is Our Superpower

 

We have yet to find a therapist who works with teens and families who does not love their work! We believe that this is due to the unique personality and innate skill set required to be successful in working with teens and families. It's a natural fit for them. Without the unique personality and innate skill set, therapists find it challenging and move on to work with others. 

 

Teen therapists and family counselors are often asked if we find it hard to work with teens and families. It's likely because they have children of their own and have compassion and empathy for the struggles. For those of us who specialize in teen therapy and family counseling, it's a question that is hard for us to comprehend.

As specialists, we take in the struggles and difficulties that teens and families face. But, we also have a superpower of being able to see past the struggles and difficulties and have a clear image in our minds of what the teen and family will be like once they successfully complete therapy. For us, it's an eventuality.  For us, it's already happened. In our minds, we see the successful outcome for a teen and family. This superpower provides us the ability to help guide the teen and family to that successful outcome.

At Katy Teen & Family, our teen counseling and family therapy specialists are half of the equation for your success.  The other half of the equation is the teen and family themselves. We have found that those families who are successful in their therapy goals are those:

  • Who attend therapy regularly

  • Teens who are willing to change and work to improve their lives (some teens come in unmotivated and that's okay. We can help)

  • Parents who understand that there may be things they can do differently to help

  • Who are committed to the process, make therapy a priority, and are not willing to give up especially when it becomes challenging

Together, we can create changes that can restore hope, happiness, and connected family relationships!
