OK, so you found us, well done!
But now what?
Our guess is that you found this website because something is just not right. You are feeling lost, confused, depressed, scared.
You are not alone.
This is a section for teens to discuss their feelings, their challenges, their fears, in a safe and compassionate space.
We all face struggles in our life and sometimes we don’t know where to turn for help. Our parents and friends don’t always understand where we are coming from. Sometimes they are the problem. Then what? Some of our friends have the same issues and turn to cutting, drugs, or alcohol but doing those things isn’t a healthy way to deal with one’s difficulties, and many know in their hearts that it’s wrong.
So if not cutting or drugs then what?
Well counseling for one. Counseling is a choice, a positive choice, towards a healthier life. The therapists here at Stribling Counseling are trained to keep our clients’ needs as our top priority. We will work with you to solve the problems you face rather than force feed you the answer.
One of the most important factors in successful therapy is that the client and the therapist must get along. Trust must be built. All too often parents bring their teens in for therapy and the teen feels like they have no choice. We give you that choice, try us out—take us for a test drive—if the fit doesn’t feel right, we won’t yell at you, we will help you find the right therapist for you—even if it means you will leave Stribling Counseling Services.
If for whatever reason, you are not yet ready for therapy or are afraid to ask for therapy, it is still important that you find a way to express your feeling be it through art, music, writing, or poetry. If you have found an outlet and you would like to share it with us, please email us and let us know so you can login and upload it to us.
Finally, we are available to take your calls or emails about our services or what counseling will mean for you. We might be able to get back to you immediately, however if you need instant help, call 911 or talk to another trusted adult. We will get back to you as soon as we get the message—and we check often, including weekends.
So be patient, know there are solutions to your troubles and stay in touch.
