Adolescents/Teenagers

 

At San Diego BrainWorks we work with teenagers to help them better understand themselves and create a sense of self, a sense of security, and a sense of what what might the underlying reason for their symptoms. We offer Insight-oriented therapy as well as Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to target immediate issues and to also address deeper feelings and emotions. We are solution focused, kind, compassionate and effective therapists who create strong relationships with the teenagers and families that we work with.
