“In fact, you couldn’t give me anything to make me go back to being a teenager. Never. No, I hated it.”
-J.K. Rowling

The period from pre-teen to adulthood can be both exciting and stressful. They are tweeting, texting, YouTube-ing. Popular culture and worldwide media vie for their attention moment to moment. There’s just too much information, and focusing on school, work, even a quiet conversation with Mom can seem like an un-achievable goal. With all that teens see and hear every day, it’s no surprise that Orange County adolescent counseling has become an effective resource for many families. Dr. Piper Walsh offers adolescent counseling to help teens develop their own healthy personal choices, relationships and communication skills as they mature into adulthood.

Teens can become overwhelmed with life. They grapple with internal pressures, those which they place on themselves, while coping with the often inconsistent values, judgments and opinions of friends and family. It is normal that teens become sensitive to how they are viewed by others. This is a time of questioning and searching for where we wish to fit in our world. Dr. Walsh understands what teens are going through. She provides Orange County adolescent counseling to help teens navigate the questions, concerns, and desires that make adolescence a complex time of growth and development.

In her Orange County adolescent counseling practice, Dr. Walsh helps teens to break down the issues that are affecting them, and what they can do to begin to feel more in control of their lives, despite the many changes that inevitably affect them. Counseling involves a great deal of self-discovery and introspection. While some teens are initially wary of the process, it can be a unique opportunity for them to share their innermost thoughts and ideas in a completely confidential setting. Dr. Walsh’s adolescent counseling clients often experience greater self-esteem and increased confidence which teens need in order to thrive and grow into confident and happy adults.
