Teens Who Self-Harm Need Support
“Seeing a counselor or joining a support group will likely help to ease the frequency and severity of self-injury.”2
Our programs are informed by the unique skills and experiences of our founder, Lauren Muriello, MA LPC, former co-director of the Omega Teen Camp.
Teens Need to Learn How to Regulate Their Emotions
“Whether [teens] learn to suppress or reappraise as their main emotion-regulation strategy may be one of the significant factors behind their future well-being.”
– James Gross, PhD David Rock from Your Brain at Work
Our Effective Approach
If your teenager is struggling with one or more of the above issues, we recommend the following:
Individual Family sessions will address your child’s specific needs in the context of your family. We believe it is essential to view your child as one part of the whole – your family.
Teen Support Groups (ages 13-17) will give your child the opportunity to express him/herself in a supportive, safe environment. The main goals of the groups are to increase self-esteem while developing life skills such as healthy coping skills, improved focus, and stronger social skills. We use modern interventions including CBT and DBT, with many creative exercises that allow your child to develop healthy coping skills and increased mindfulness in all areas of life.
Well Being Therapy Center offers individual psychotherapy, couples counseling, teen children therapy, and group therapy sessions in a comfortable setting.
We look forward to welcoming you into our practice, and helping you to achieve your optimal Well Being.
