About Teen Therapy

Welcome to Purple Sky Counseling, where we specialize in Teen Therapy Services!

As a parent, it can be incredibly difficult to witness your teenager struggling and feeling powerless to help. What worked in the past may no longer be effective, leading to strained relationships and communication breakdowns within the family dynamic.

At Purple Sky Counseling, we understand the unique struggles that teenagers and families face. We offer a supportive and non-judgmental environment where adolescents can explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences with a skilled therapist. 

The reality is, many teenagers are grappling with issues such as bullying, social pressures, familial expectations, and becoming adults. These challenges often manifest in symptoms of anxiety, depression, or even trauma, leaving both teenagers and parents feeling lost and unsure of how to cope.

Our dedicated team of counselors is passionate about not only helping your teenager, but working with the whole family to make your daily life easier and calmer.  With specialized training in working with teenagers and families, we’re committed to helping you uncover the underlying issues and develop a personalized plan for healing and growth.

Our Approach

Our Purple Sky counselors excel in working with teens. We understand that each teen is unique, which is why we tailor our therapy approach to meet their individual needs. They understand how to talk with them and how to meet them at their level. A counselor is often one of a few adults that a teen trusts to work through deeper issues with.

Our therapists meet your teen where they are and utilize evidence-based techniques to address a variety of concerns, including anxiety, depression, trauma, and more. We strive to create a safe space for healing and growth for you and your teen. 

We also work with the parents and/or family to improve communication, boundaries and emotional support for everyone.

Counseling for Teens


Teens today are often experiencing a great deal of stress, anxiety and pressure. They are also experiencing more bullying, social issues and family pressures. This can be overwhelming and often leads to anxiety, depression and/or trauma.

It is hard to be a parent when this is happening. Often, you don’t know how to help because what worked in the past isn’t working now. You and your teen are fighting all the time, or they have quit talking to you.

We are passionate about helping your teen and your family figure out what is going on and developing a plan to support you. Here at Purple Sky Counseling, our counselors are highly trained in working with teens and families.

Specialized Support for Teens and Trauma Recovery
Traumatic experiences can have a profound impact on a teen’s emotional well-being and development. At Purple Sky Counseling, we specialize in working with teenagers who have experienced trauma, offering trauma-informed support and evidence-based interventions to facilitate healing and recovery.
All of our therapists are trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a highly effective therapy for processing and resolving trauma. EMDR supports children and teenagers in processing tough memories and beliefs, making them feel less overwhelming and easing the feelings tied to them. This helps them develop better ways to handle difficult situations and feelings.
Your teen getting the help they need before they become adults can be life changing for them and your family. It gives them the chance to build the life everyone wants them to have. Let us help you and your family today.
