Teen Therapist in Fresno, California

Mental health issues can manifest in many ways, including sleep changes, social isolation, worrying, self-harm, substance abuse, and other behaviors. We provide individual therapy, family therapy, and group therapy for teens. Our mission is to help teens when day to day life seems unmanageable.  We also provide an Intensive Outpatient Program that meets four times a week for three hours each session.

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.
