When adolescents experience emotions or engage in behaviors that interfere with their self-esteem, academics, or social relationships, they may benefit from therapy.
What are signs my adolescent needs therapy?
If you are starting to notice your child experiencing less joy with friends or with things they used to be passionate about. Sometimes kids grow out of things naturally, and sometimes it's more serious; we can help clarify and assess for any mental health issues.
Will my child benefit more from adolescent therapy or family therapy?
Each adolescent is different, many times adolescent therapy would benefit from family therapy as well. We offer parent consultations and provide referrals for parents if appropriate.
What ages do Lakeshore Clinicians see?
Our clinician's each work with a different age range based on their training. The youngest age we see is age 10.
How long will it take to see change
The more willing your child is to engage in therapy will make a big difference in their treatment. Often times things can seem harder during the start of therapy as you are identifying and processing issues that may have been previously unaddressed.
What is therapy like for adolescents?
Our therapists are client-centered and believe that the client is the expert of their own story and healing, this is no different for adolescent therapy.
How much does it cost?

“Adolescence is not a period of being “crazy” or “immature.” It is an essential time of emotional intensity, social engagement, and creativity.
