We understand the complex issues our adolescent clients are facing today and know deciding to ask for help can be a difficult step for many adolescents. They may be feeling sad, angry, alone, or overwhelmed by all that is happening in their lives and not sure how to sort through it all.

Whether your adolescent is struggling with problems in school, friendships & relationships, self esteem or family dynamics they might feel more supported if they talk with a therapist.

At Emmaus, our adolescent specialized therapists offer our young folks support when they are going through difficult times, help sort through their feelings and find solutions and tools to balance their lives and discover their own path.

WASHINGTON STATE LAWS REGARDING MENTAL HEALTH AND ADOLESCENTS

In the State of Washington, minors have the right to confidentiality at the age of 13. This means parents do not have the right to access the minor’s counseling records or conversations between therapist and child unless we have written authorization from the minor.  Children 13+: please also sign a Release of Information Records (ROI) identifying the release of information only as it relates to billing and statements so that we may send these to the parent/guardian for payment.
