Caring Therapists of Broward has a team of therapists who have a long history of working with teenagers. It takes a special type of therapist to be effective with teenagers. The therapist needs to be empathetic and caring, in addition to being able to build rapport with a teenager. Teens can be angry, defiant and unwilling to follow rules. By having a therapist they can trust, they can learn to express their emotions in a healthy manner.
We specialize in working with teenagers, both boys and girls who struggle with the following:
- Body image issues
