Teen Therapist Serving Fresno, CA
Are you seeking a teen therapist in Fresno that can help your teenager function better in their day to day life? At Ascend Behavioral Health, we treat a wide range of mental health issues and help teens find their true potential. Mental illnesses can present themselves in many ways, so it can be challenging for parents to pinpoint a problem. If your teen is having a difficult time concentrating on school tasks, withdrawing from social activity, abusing substances, or other symptoms, they may be struggling with mental illness. The therapists at Ascend have a strong understanding of mental illnesses in teens and how to help them thrive. We offer both traditional outpatient therapy along with an Intensive Outpatient Program that meets multiple times a week. To learn more about how our therapists can assist your teen, contact Ascend Behavioral Health in Fresno today.
Who We Serve
It is Ascend’s mission to serve teens who are struggling with mental health conditions. Often times we serve those who need more help and assistance than their school, outpatient therapist, or families can support. When things get especially difficult in life, Ascend is here to be your beacon of hope.
Typically, teens that find their home at Ascend are struggling with anxiety and/or depression. We often see that teens don’t present with “adult” symptoms of these disorders. They may be irritable and acting out, moody and argumentative, isolating and pushing others away, engaging in self-harm, using drugs or alcohol, or not seeming like themselves. When these concerns are present and they are interfering with school, family life, or friendships, it’s time to consider enrolling in Ascend’s Intensive Outpatient Program.
While we are happy to help assess and refer, often times teens who are actively psychotic, have a developmental disorder, or have a severe eating disorder are better suited for programs who serve these specific disorders.
