Individual Counseling

Doorways provides individual counseling services for teens and young adults ages 13-25.

Our counselors specialize in working with teens and young adults.  They are able to relate to them in ways that break down barriers and open doors to hope and healing.

It takes a certain kind of person to work with teenagers and young adults.  Someone who respects who teenagers as unique individuals, someone who understands their developmental stages, who remembers what it’s like to be a teen and young adult, and communicates in a language that they can understand. At Doorways, our providers respect, listen to, care about and understand this stage of a young person’s life. We value adolescents as unique individuals.

That is why we hire counselors who:

  • Have Masters’ level or Doctorate degrees in their field of study
  • Are licensed and background checked
  • Have extensive experience working with teens and young adults
  • Have earned their credentials
  • Are team players and have a sense of humor
  • Are willing to be creative in helping kids heal
  • Providers who are involved in continuing education in their field

Our providers are the types of people that teens have a tendency to like and trust as role models.   This makes a huge difference in individual counseling because adolescence and young adulthood is a time of tremendous change and challenge.  Sometimes, navigating those changes requires guidance and support beyond what parents can provide.

Teenagers need counselors who understand the kinds of emotional, mental, and spiritual challenges they are facing.  This kind of individual, one-on-one attention can provide teens with the tools they need to overcome and/or manage:

  • Depression/Mood Disorders
  • Anxiety Disorders/Social Anxiety
  • OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)
  • Trauma and Abuse Recovery
  • Suicide Prevention
  • Substance Abuse Issues
  • Self Harm Behavior
  • Attention- Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) (ADD)

When you call for individual counseling, we will ask you questions about your situation so that we are able to match you up the counselor who will best meet your needs. Many of our individual counselors accept insurance.  Please mention your insurance plan when you call.
