Working with Young Teens and Teenagers requires a different therapeutic skill set than working with adults.
Dr. Cynthia Edwards-Hawver has been a clinical psychologist for 12 years and treating clients in Clarks Summit for 10 years. She recently expanded her practice and her associates have training and experience working with young adolescents.
At Dr. Cynthia Edwards-Hawver and Associates the focus is building trust, rapport, and a solid working relationship with younger adolescents (ages 10 to 13) and older adolescents (ages 14 to 18).
We do not have a one size fits all therapeutic model, instead, we match our skills to the needs of the adolescents we work with.
We use talk therapy, art therapy, games, skill building, and offer therapy groups. We attempt to include the entire family at various points during the treatment process in order to build better home environments.
We also believe in reaching out to school guidance counselors, school psychologists, physicians, and coaches in order to coordinate comprehensive care for our clients. We will go the extra mile to provide the best possible care for your child.
These are some of the top problems we treat:
- Eating Disorders
- Peer Relationship Problems
- Self Esteem Issues
- Alcohol/Drug Use
- Family Conflict
- Anger Issues
- Divorcing Parents
IF YOU KNOW OF A YOUNG ADOLESCENT WHO IS SUFFERING WITH ANY OF THESE ISSUES, PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE TODAY. THERE IS HOPE OUT THERE AND WE CAN HELP.
