What Does Adolescent Therapy at the Norooz Clinic Foundation Look Like?

Seeking counseling support does not mean that your teen is crazy! At least 1 in 5 teens struggle with a mental health issue. Our clinicians treat mental health problems just like any medical problem. For instance, if you break your leg, you go to an orthopedic doctor.

If you have an earache, you see an ear, nose, and throat specialist. If you are depressed, anxious, or need someone to talk to, you go to a therapist.

Counseling is meant to be an entirely individualized experience, where your teen has the opportunity to express themselves freely and have an experience of being listened to with compassion and without judgment to process and work through their difficulties.

Not only do we aim to provide support and encouragement for each of our clients, it is our goal to offer them creative practical resources that they can put into practice immediately in their lives.

Types of Therapy That We Provide

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, your teen meets with a therapist alone to talk about your problems. Each session lasts about 50 minutes.

The therapist may ask your teen to identify their feelings about the problems. And they might get “homework” that will help them work through the problems.

Everything they say in therapy is confidential, unless the therapist has good reason to believe that your teen might hurt yourself or someone else. Sometimes, it can be helpful for the therapist to talk parents or your teen’s school counselor about a problem.

Family Therapy

With family therapy, you and your teen (and sometimes their brothers and sisters) go to therapy together. Because everybody is there, the teen can work on problems that affect the family.

The therapist will discourage interrupting, and make sure everyone gets to voice their concerns.

What Is a Psychological Evaluation?

A psychological evaluation is a thorough process of assessment and screening administered by an adolescent psychologist. The methods used for the evaluation will depend on your teen’s needs. It may consist of a series of formal or structured psychological or neuropsychological tests as well as clinical interviews designed to identify and describe the emotional, behavioral or learning problems that may be contributing to the problems your teen is having.A psychological evaluation should be considered in cases where there is uncertainty about the reasons your teen is having problems with mood, behavior, or learning.

The role of the psychologist doing the evaluation is similar to a detective looking for clues to solve a mystery. The more clues that can be identified, the more information you’ll have to understand what’s going on with your teen and decide what options are best suited to help them.

A psychological evaluation can provide useful information about your teen to include:

  • the severity of symptoms of depression or anxiety
  • the presence of a learning disability
  • academic strengths and weaknesses
  • root causes of emotional problems
  • positive and negative coping styles
  • reasons for aggressive behavior
  • information about how your teen views the world
  • issues or conflicts your teen is struggling with
  • insight into your teens’ personality style
All our services are completely confidential and supervised by a clinical supervisor. Your teen will typically meet one-on-one with one of our caring & expert staff to complete a testing battery that is designed based on their needs. Assessment may require scheduling multiple blocks of time (2-6 hours) depending on the testing, along with a final feedback session where we provide you with the results and our recommendations.

A copy of the report will also be given to you to use, and can be sent to your teen’s school if requested.
