Katy Teen & Family Counseling

Mission & Values

 

At Katy Teen & Family Counseling, our mission and values are born out of our personal and professional experiences:

 

  • We know what it's like to struggle during the teen years with teen anxiety, teen depression, or other struggles.

  • We understand the heartache, concern, and worry these struggles create among their loving family members.

  • We have seen the impact these struggles can have for teens as they develop into young adults.

Now, during the teen years, is the time to resolve these emotional or behavioral struggles. The weight and burden of adult responsibilities are still years away.

 

We can help your teen and family resolve those struggles now and prevent the difficulties in the future that these struggles may create.

It is important for us at Katy Teen & Family Counseling, that we are driven and guided by a shared set of values that in turn guide our mission in serving the teens and families in the Katy and Houston area.

 

Below are our Mission & Values that guide our teen therapy and family counseling practice:

 

The Mission of Katy Teen & Family Counseling


"Through teen and family counseling, we help our teens live awesome lives by overcoming the obstacles of today thereby preventing the challenges of tomorrow."

The Values of Katy Teen & Family Counseling

 

It is important to us as individuals, as well as teen therapists and family counselors, that we strive to live our values in our personal and professional lives. As teen counselors and family therapists, these values help us be successful in helping your teen and family be successful.

Integrity

A foundational value we hold is integrity. Our mission and other values rests on integrity. To be effective and successful in proving teen therapy and family counseling, our specialists strive to live their values in their personal and professional lives. 

Trust

Trust is a critical element of the therapeutic relationship. The success we have with teens and families will be directly related to the level of trust you have in your teen therapist and family counselor

Confidentiality 

It takes courage to start the therapy journey. Though it is a journey well worth taking as it can help you live your full potential, it is not always an easy journey. There may be things discussed that you have not shared with another person before. Feelings will be experienced. Emotions will be felt. We understand the trust that you have placed in us to help you through a vulnerable and difficult time in your life. We keep our teens and families information confidential. 

We do update the parents we work with on the teen's progress in therapy. We will not share any sensitive information without gaining permission from the teen. In order for us to be effective in helping you, we must build and retain trust. The updates we give are general and we can provide examples in the initial session.

There are some limits to confidentiality. If we suspect that there may be child abuse we by law, are mandated to report that. If we believe that the teen will harm themselves, we by law, are mandated to report that. If we suspect that the teen or someone in the family may cause intentional harm to another, our ethics would recommend reporting this.  

Clinical Excellence

We value those therapy approaches that bring about change in the shortest amount of time. Our clinical practice is founded on those therapy approaches that are supported by research and shown to be effective.

Empathy & Acceptance

This value speaks to the heart of being a teen counselor and family therapist. It's important that in teen therapy or family counseling, the therapist is able to understand the perspective of the teen or family. We aren't just talking about an intellectual understanding but a felt understanding as well.

 

With that intellectual and felt understanding, it is important that teens and families feel acceptance. Some of the struggles that teens enter teen therapy with are not of their own doing. Some of the struggles that families experience they had little control over. Sometimes, the reasons for teens and families entering therapy are directly related to things they may have done or not done.

 

Either way, fault or blame is of little value in the therapy process. Our teen therapists and family counselors focus on where you are today and how we can help you get to where you want to be. We may explore the history behind the struggle to help provide information and context. But, our focus is on helping your teen and family to heal today.

Devoted and Committed to Client Care

Devoted and committed client care means that we work with each teen and family as if they are the only teen and family we are working with. We provide high quality client care matched with strong commitment to your success. From the first phone call until the conclusion of teen therapy or family counseling, we are devoted and committed to your success.
