Teen Counseling in New Hampshire
Helping Teens Address Emotional Issues and Major Life Changes Throughout NH
We help teens going through difficult life transitions stemming from divorce of parents, bullying, and crises of gender identity. In fact, we have an office right here in Bedford for your convenience if you live anywhere in New Hampshire.
Counseling a teenager is in many ways very different than counseling a young child or adult. Many teens don’t feel comfortable speaking with parents, teachers or even their friends about the issues that are affecting them. They need an impartial, compassionate person to share their thoughts with and gain perspective within a safe, comforting environment. We offer that here at Family Counseling Associates.
Our teen counseling in New Hampshire gives your child the mental and behavioral health services they need to thrive. They’ll get one-on-one attention from therapists, but also social workers, psychologists, neuropsychologists, counselors and psychiatrists if necessary. While we definitely offer therapy to all ages, from children and teens to adults and seniors, we have multiple counselors on staff who are specially trained to deal with teen issues and concerns. These may include behavioral and learning disabilities as well as drug and alcohol addiction.
Family Counseling Associates is located at 360 Route 101, Unit 12B, in Bedford, NH, and can be reached at 603-242-2296. Our hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
How We Help Teens in New Hampshire
Our approach is to draw on cognitive-behavioral techniques when working with teens but we may also use an integrative approach. Teen- and child-focused individual therapy could include:
- Adjusting to life changes, such as parental divorce or separation
- Social skills training
- Therapies that help them cope with anxiety, anger and depression
- Strategies that reduce impulsivity, inattention and hyperactivity
- Self-management or coping strategies for more independence
- Emotional-regulation training
Plus, we work alongside parents and guardians through consultations that help you develop positive relationships with your teen, strengthen the family culture and manage behaviors. Here are the many services we offer throughout New Hampshire:

Is your child a good candidate for individual therapy and teen counseling in New Hampshire? We can discuss this in greater detail at your child’s initial visit, but evidence-based psychotherapy has been known to improve teens’ feelings of self-efficacy. It also helps strengthen social relationships and helps them function more effectively in their environments.
Importance of the Family
We want to emphasize the importance of involving the whole family in teen counseling in New Hampshire when possible. The issues affecting teens rarely stay within those confines, often spilling over into family life. Sibling and parents are an integral part of the healing process in many instances.
Mental health disorders, including depression, bipolar disorder and anxiety, not only spur high levels of personal conflict within a teen, but can strain existing familial relationships as well.
Please schedule an appointment with one of our licensed therapists, psychologists, counselors, psychiatrists, social workers or psychiatric-nurses to determine what the best personalized treatment plan is for your teenager.
