Adolescent Therapy (12+)

About Adolescent Therapy (12+)

The clinic offers therapy to adolescents who are 12 years of age and older. We accept self-referrals and referrals from physicians and lawyers. The first step is to contact the clinic to set up a free 15-minute phone consultation with the Clinic Coordinator. The adolescent must contact the clinic themselves to set up the telephone conversation. If the adolescent wishes for a parent/guardian to have the telephone consultation in their place, they must sign a consent form authorizing this. During the telephone conversation, the Clinic Coordinator will provide information about the clinic and therapist recommendations based on the client’s needs. Individual therapy starts with an intake session where the therapist will assess symptoms and treatment needs and develop a tailored treatment plan. Common examples of therapeutic goals are: symptom reduction, increasing confidence, improving personal relationships, building workplace/academic success, understanding and changing ineffective behavioural and mental patterns, and improving overall wellbeing. Using evidence-based treatments, we work to help you tap into your power to achieve your goals. If we assess your needs to be outside the scope of our practice, we will work alongside you to identify best-fit referral options.
