Adolescents

For ADOLESCENTS
(12-17 y.o.)

  • Adolescence represents a specific psychological chapter in our lives and it can be very useful to have a separate space to explore questions, resolve conflicts or get help

  • Adolescents sometimes request therapy themselves or are referred by their parents or teachers for concerns including:

    • School absenteeism

    • Anxiety and/or depression

    • Difficulty with social engagement

    • Substance abuse

    • Disordered eating

 

  • After an initial assessment, we fix a therapeutic framework which typically includes weekly individual appointments and punctual meetings with parents.  

  • For learning related concerns, I carry out standardized cognitive testing for adolescents (WISC-V).  This tool highlights strengths and weaknesses and can be used to help clarify areas for intervention or support.
