Teen Therapy in Houston, TX
Parenting is difficult, and your teenager didn’t come with an instruction manual. Our behavioral therapists are experts in teen behavior and are here to help you get to the bottom of what is causing them to act this way.
Does Your Teen Need Counseling?
Your teen has been acting differently lately.
Your teenager has been spending less time with you and your family and more time alone in their bedroom. You have noticed that their grades have dropped. Maybe your high school student has become more angry and aggressive towards you or their siblings. Perhaps you’ve noticed your previously happy teen is now crying more often and is easily irritated.
You are worried about your teenager’s behavior, but when you ask them what’s wrong, they tell you, “It’s nothing” or “I am fine.”
As a Parent, You May be wondering:
- Is this normal teen behavior?
- Are these behaviors symptoms of fluctuating hormones or is there something more serious going on?
- Is my teen using alcohol or drugs?
- Is my teen involved in other risky behaviors?
- Why won’t my teen talk to me anymore?
At BPC, we understand your concerns and the feelings of frustration, confusion, and desperation that they may be causing you.

Our Approach to Teen Therapy
At BPC, we treat disorders in teens using effective and evidence-based techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to treat anxiety and depression, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to treat personality disorders, and EMDR to treat trauma.
We also incorporate expressive therapies including art, writing, sand tray, and games in order to reach each teen’s unique way of expressing themselves. To learn more about play and expressive therapies, visit our Play Therapy Page.
We use the most current research in neurobiology and attachment to inform our work with teens and families because we view counseling as an opportunity to collaborate with parents and their teens in order to strengthen family bonds and heal together.
We work closely with parents throughout the treatment process and provide parenting support along the way. Visit our Parent Counseling page to learn more about how we support parents.
