Adolescent Therapy / Counseling / Evaluations and Coaching for Teenagers in the Orlando and Central Florida Area

Same-day appointments available.

Some adolescents / teenagers have minor issues and just need a little assistance to get back on their feet and back on track. Whereas some adolescents / teenagers have very serious issues such as teenage depression, eating disorders, teenage violence, substance abuse, and many more serious issues that need more significant interventions. Some teens go to counseling to prevent problems from occurring in the future and some come to solve current problems or heal from past wounds. In order to successfully intervene with a teenager it is highly recommended that you choose a therapist that specializes in adolescent therapy. Although most teenagers feel they should be treated like an adult, they have many needs that are unique to a teenager and need a therapist that understands these needs and specializes in helping adolescents overcome their difficulties, get their needs met, and help them on their way to developing into highly functional adults someday. There are two main types of adolescent therapy offered at the Counseling Corner:

  • Preventative Therapy (to help teens prevent problems from occurring in the future)
