Benefits of Therapy for Teens

Teens often feel that they lack freedom, understanding, and may struggle to flourish into young adults. Therapy is useful for teens because they’re able to seek professional support and guidance from a licensed therapist that is dedicated to upholding their confidentiality while empowering them to make healthy choices for themselves. Therapy gives teens the space to find their voices, discover what is most important to them, and work through challenges that get in the way of feeling fulfilled and empowered.


The benefits of therapy as a teen include improved academic performance, better relationships with family and friends, less power struggles at home, ability to communicate effectively, and increased emotional regulation. Teens report feeling more confident, self-assured, and able to navigate complexities better after participating in therapy. At Counseling Unconditionally, we witness the transformative growth that teens experience in therapy each and every day.

What to Expect with Teen Therapy

Develop a Confident, Self-Assured Teen

It is not abnormal to feel a little uneasy or unsure when preparing for your first teen therapy session. We find it helpful to share what to expect for your first session to help you feel equipped and confident. We usually meet with the teen and their caregiver(s) for their first intake session. We will discuss what is bringing you to seek therapy, process any previous experiences you may have had in therapy, and explore what your goals are for your treatment. This is an opportunity for us to learn more about one another while building up a strong therapeutic alliance. If time allows, we appreciate the time to talk with the teen one on one to gain comfortability and allow them to share freely without their caregiver(s) present. 

Depending on the needs of the teen, our therapists will recommend either individual therapy sessions, individual and family therapy sessions, or individual, family, and parent sessions. We tailor treatment to best suit the needs of your family. We work together in a collaborative manner to reach the treatment goals you identified in your first intake session. After working with us, teens feel more confident, self-assured, and get along better with other people.
