Give Therapy a Chance

 

Our teen therapist Lynzee has a good understanding of what it is like to be a teen in the world today, and she knows that it is different than when your parents were growing up. Lynzee has worked in the schools for years and has spent hundreds of hours getting to know teens and listening to their unique issues. She understands that the world you live in is complex and demanding.

 

There has never has been a generation with the challenges quite like the challenges you face. Social media, a global pandemic, the pressures of school and work, and the experience of living in a mountain town create new challenges everyday. We want to help you not only navigate this difficult new world, but also thrive and find happiness. You deserve to enjoy your teen years. 

 

Lynzee also understands that one of the challenges of being a tween, teen, or young adult is getting along with family members and parents when they have opinions or expectations that differ from your own. Her goal is to make your family life as harmonious and peaceful as possible, helping both you and your family to express yourself and get your needs met.

Contact us today to schedule a time to talk to Lynzee and decide if working with her is right for you.

We offer virtual therapy for teens to help accommodate busy schedules!

For Tweens and Teens:

We know it's not easy to talk to a stranger about your difficulties, and you might have some reservations about adolescent counseling.

We also know that there are times in all of our lives when we could benefit from the help of a trained professional who can offer a new perspective as well as provide tools that support your mental health.

Is Therapy Just Talking?

 

No! While talking is a part of therapy, we understand that there are many ways to process your emotions and experiences. Talking one-on-one can be difficult for some people, and we honor that everyone's process is different.

 

During your session, you can walk, talk, spend time down by the Blue River, draw, write, or find your own way to engage with therapy.

 

Bonus, Lynzee brings her sweet therapy pup Pippin to session to help clients feel more comfortable and engaged!

For Parents & Families

 

At Grit Therapy, we love tweens. teens, and young adults. However, we know that they live in an incredibly complex and challenging world.

 

Their developmental task of fostering independence under the pressures of social media, a global pandemic, and school can make them challenging to parent. 

 

We know you are doing your best to support and connect with your child, and we would love to support you in that process. We offer teen therapy in Colorado with the goal of  helping the whole family improve their relationships and live a more peaceful life together. 

Imagine a peaceful household

If you are struggling with your relationship with your teen, or finding their moods or behaviors difficult for you, we understand and can help. Our therapist has years of experience working in the school system, and has been through the teenage years with four of her own children.

The tween and teen years will be challenging, but they can also be filled with joy and connection.

Worried about your tween, teen, or young adult's mental health? 

 

The World Health Organization (WHO) reports the following data regarding adolescent mental health:

 

  • Half of all mental health conditions start by 14 years of age but most cases are undetected and untreated.

  • Globally, depression is one of the leading causes of illness and disability among adolescents.

  • Suicide is the third leading cause of death in 15-19-year-olds.

  • The consequences of not addressing adolescent mental health conditions extend to adulthood, impairing both physical and mental health and limiting opportunities to lead fulfilling lives as adults.

 

Luckily, we know that early intervention is key in helping prevent, address, and heal mental health issues so our young people can thrive.

Don't wait to support your teen in their mental health journey. Contact us today to schedule your free phone consultation.
