Signs Your Child Can Use Youth/Teen Therapy

It can be challenging to determine whether you should seek professional help for your child. Youth and teens may need counseling for the following reasons:

  • They make reckless decisions.
  • They often seem sad or worried.

If a child exhibits any of the above signs, consider speaking with a therapist about teen or youth counseling. If you are curious to learn more about how you can help your child, read licensed therapist Stephanie Olarte’s tips about teen/youth therapy and how parents can get involved.
