We are now offering parent support sessions in person and through teletherapy or online therapy. To learn more, reach out.
it’s even harder when your teenager is struggling. While we worry about their well-being and toe the line between being too involved or not involved enough as a parent, its intimidating to reach out to peers or other parents for advice without fear of judgement.
Denver Metro Counseling supports and guides parents with teenagers, whether or not the teen is also receiving counseling or treatment. We work with parents of teens struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, substance use/abuse, self-injury behaviors, suicidal thoughts, struggles with school, social challenges, family conflict, and trauma.
Separately, our team of therapists provide support to parents and collaborate with other care and treatment providers through their teen’s progression in treatment at higher levels of care including group therapy, wilderness therapy, residential treatment, therapeutic boarding schools.
Collaboration is key – and together, we can help you explore ways to best support your child and their needs, plus improve communication and the relationship between you and your child.
If you or your teen is receiving counseling from a Denver Metro Counseling therapist, your therapist is available between sessions should you have questions or concerns about their safety. Please note that because we are not a crisis center, we have limited availability. We recommend you call, text or email your therapist or your teen’s therapist – keeping in mind they may not be able to get back to you immediately – and leaving a message stating your concern and best way to reach you.
If you have concerns for your teen’s safety in regard to suicide and you do not feel you are able to keep them safe until you hear back from your/their therapist we recommend calling Colorado Crisis Services at 1-844-493-TALK (8255), going to your nearest emergency room or walk-in clinic for an evaluation, or – if absolutely necessary – calling 911 for transportation to an emergency room. Please inform your/their therapist if you do engage other supports and make sure to sign a release for your teen’s therapist to be able to communicate with whomever will be assisting in their care.
At the end of the first meeting you and your therapist will know your therapy goals and establish a method to achieve them.
