//Can you imagine getting your wisdom young? To learn to work through difficult emotions? To love yourself? To separate your own identity, worth, and internal narrative from your parent's story? YES! All of that and more please.
At Modern Therapy, our bread and butter is providing therapy and coaching in Houston with high functioning people dealing with life, mostly in the form of anxiety, depression, relationship, and adjustment concerns. Somewhere within our fresh take on therapy, we started to get some teens knocking on our door with parents behind them that wanted nothing more than to see them happy and successful in life. They were smart, reflective, and such genuinely cool people (way cooler than we were at their age). But similar to our own experiences, they struggled to see their reflection the same way. Our teens struggle with identity and finding their place in the world (which completely echoes some of our young and mid age professionals too!). It became very clear, very quickly how much we LOVED doing therapy with teens.
Can you imagine getting your wisdom young? To learn to work through difficult emotions? To love yourself? To separate your own identity, worth, and internal narrative from your parent's story? YES! All of that and more please. It creates an extra meaningful warmth in our heart to hold space for our young people as they walk through big life questions about themselves and the world around them. It's also a huge help and source of ease for our parents who know they are fully human too and understand that no matter how hard they may try, little humans will sponge up and pick up all kinds of interpretations and experiences. It's called life and it's true that it takes a village. Lord knows we all could have benefitted from some safe, confidential space when we were that age to move through our mess and make our wisest choices. We're proud to create intentional space and expertise for our young MTers.
