The Initial Consultation

Beginning adolescent therapy at Hope Harbor is a straightforward process. It typically starts with an initial consultation, during which one of our therapists will meet with the adolescent and their parent or guardian. This consultation serves as an opportunity to discuss concerns, goals, and expectations for therapy.

Matching Therapists

We understand the importance of a good therapist-client match. Based on the initial consultation, we carefully match each adolescent with the therapist best suited to their needs, personality, and therapy goals.

Duration and Frequency

The duration and frequency of therapy sessions may vary depending on the needs of the adolescent. Typically, sessions last between 45 to 60 minutes, and the frequency is determined in collaboration with the therapist.

The benefits

Emotional Regulation and Resilience

Adolescence is a time of emotional ups and downs. Therapy helps adolescents develop emotional regulation skills, allowing them to navigate challenging situations with resilience and composure.

Improved Self-Esteem

Low self-esteem can be a significant issue for adolescents. Therapy provides a supportive environment for building self-confidence and a positive self-image.

Enhanced Communication Skills

Effective communication is crucial in both personal and academic life. Our therapists work with adolescents to improve their communication skills, leading to better relationships with peers, teachers, and family members.

Academic and Social Improvements

Many adolescents experience academic challenges or social difficulties. Therapy can address these issues by providing strategies for academic success and helping adolescents build meaningful social connections.
