Academic Pressure

Are academic pressures overwhelming your teen?

Is your teen struggling under the weight of external pressure within the school system or internal pressure to perform?

At LifePath, we understand the challenges teens face in today’s educational environment. Schools can be places where teens flourish, but they can also be systems in which teens feel isolated or behind. Our therapeutic approach helps untangle their thoughts, navigate anxiety, and align their goals with personal values. Working with your teen, we will help them to recognize and utilize their strengths in school, change their relationship to pressure, and help them to feel more grounded as they tackle the challenges of school.
