Adolescents

Adolescents

Adolescence is a difficult time in a girl’s life.  While identity development is the primary task of this developmental stage, the chronic influx of images,  ideas and pressures from peers, the media and cyberspace makes finding one’s true voice – let alone acting from a place of authenticity – extraordinarily difficult.

Because of this, many girls and young women turn to alcohol, drugs, cutting, eating disorders, depression, or anxiety in an attempt to navigate this difficult time period.

At IntrinPsych   Woman we have the experience to help girls traverse the challenging waters of adolescence and will work with the client and her family to help adolescent development evolve and flourish.
