Therapists Specializing in Adolescent Mental Health in Seattle

Adolescence is a formative developmental phase of life full of rapid changes and unique challenges. Given the social, emotional, and physical changes occurring, it’s very normal to experience some degree of distress during this time. Therefore, it can be difficult to distinguish normal distress from more serious mental health concerns, particularly because adolescents can find it hard to communicate emotional and psychological difficulties. If symptoms such as persistent irritability, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, risk-taking behavior, or mood changes are negatively affecting an adolescents’ relationships or academic participation, seeking the opinion of a mental health professional may help.

A therapist will be able to discuss these symptoms and help choose the best fitting therapy type to help. Depending on the specific issues faced, therapists can help adolescents learn new skills for coping or communicating, deal with bullying, and examine thinking patterns in order to develop more helpful perspectives.

Therapy should not be yet another place where you feel the weight of judgement, or evaluation—but instead a safe space where you feel greater freedom to explore and identify the details of life that may feel entangling and option narrowing. The work you and I do together will be collaborative and sensitive to your needs and concerns—with the intention of creating a comfortable and optimal space for you to name and work towards the goals that inspired your search for a therapist. Your life is important and I look forward to working with you.

Note that I provide free 20 minute initial consultations to give you an opportunity to verify whether or not I am a good fit for your therapy needs.

My best,

Jeremy Mays, LMFT

Relationships can be very challenging and complicated both with others and ourselves. If you find yourself in a place questioning repetitive thoughts or feeling emotions that may be roadblocks for personal growth, therapy is an opportunity for you to explore and grow both personally and interpersonally. We are all made up of many parts and often times we have a couple parts of us, such as an angry part or anxious part, that we feel defined by. Often times these parts prevent us from living our truest and fullest selves. I promise to be fully present and committed in helping you understand these difficult parts and how they may be preventing you from feeling like yourself. I have a very interactive style and will work with you at a pace you are comfortable with to help you find peace and harmony with yourself and in your life.

We all need to be seen, and heard, at any age. Being scared, anxious, or even depressed are sometimes part of being a person. Our fast-paced digital world can present unique challenges for our bodies and minds. I am happy to meet you wherever you are, and will approach each visit with a sense of compassionate curiosity. Just as we hunger for stories of other people to help guide us, you may wonder about your own story. Why are you here? What must you do with your life?

I work with adolescents (12+) through older, retired adults and specialize in issues of transition, anxiety, adjustment, depression, and vocation. I am not the expert in your life; you are. But sometimes we need help with perspective. Together, we will create a plan that will help you reduce the most difficult aspects of your life and help you determine how to move through them. What cannot be changed can be reviewed, understood, and ultimately, accepted.

It can be very hard to live with emotional pain and suffering. It is often though ways of coping with emotional pain on our own that we can develop patterns of being stuck.

It is through the vulnerability, and it is so vulnerable, of being with someone who is listening and opening with curiosity, insight, and care that we can begin to find a way through suffering.
