Teen Therapy & Counseling in Las Vegas & Summerlin

Investing in your teen’s mental health has lifelong positive impact.

Get Started

Age 15-25 is the most important decade of your child’s life. They’re making decisions about who they are as young adults and what path they’re on. Teenagers are developing their self-esteem and laying the groundwork for their future. Thus, I genuinely believe we should be investing as much into their mental health as we are in their education.

Right now, while teenagers’ hormones are in flux and their brains aren’t even fully developed, they’re navigating things like romantic relationships, academic choices, peers’ substance use, mental health challenges, body image, self-harm, and more. For parents, this can be a terrifying time!

Gone are the days when you could hoist them tantruming under your arm when they were being unreasonable, or you could make everything better with a snuggle and a kiss.

“Bringing my daughter in was the best decision we ever made. She didn’t have any major problems, per se; we were just worried about her mental health and wanted her to have a safe outlet as she navigates high school and gets ready for college.” 

Why Put Your Teenage Daughter or Son in Counseling?

You want what’s best for them, you want them to make good choices, and be happy. You just want them to be okay and you recognize that you *both* deserve extra support to make that happen. 

This is why therapy for teens is amazing. You’ll get the peace of mind that they have a safe space to process everything that’s going on, even if they won’t fully open up to you. You’ll know that they have a trustworthy, and highly skilled sounding board who they’ll actually listen to. 

Most teens are desperate to open up to someone about their thoughts and feelings- they just don’t always talk to their parents because they’re afraid of judgment, consequences, lectures, etc. 

Therapy for teenagers provides this perfect middle ground. We can listen, empathize, validate, and problem solve in a meaningful way. We get to be a voice of reason they trust and will actually listen to. (It’s not about you. I have 4 daughters who won’t listen to me when they’re teenagers either, and they’ll all be in therapy for the exact same reasons I’ve outlined above!)

We’d love to be in your corner and support your teen through this important stage!

Helping teens choose happiness

What Is Teen Therapy Like?

A lot of what we’ll do, in our Las Vegas practice, is just process what’s going on in their lives. We’ll talk about friend drama, boy drama, school drama, and fights with you. Teen counseling truly can become an outlet for healing, empathy, and growth for your daughter or son!

But I’ll also teach them specific skills to deal with things like depression, anxiety and negative self-talk. I’ll also instill important life-long lessons like self-respect, self-worth, setting boundaries, interpersonal effectiveness, and how to find yourself and build a great future.

Benefits of Teenage Counseling

Increased Self-Love & Worth
Improved Behavior & Mood
Lower Anxiety
Less Acting Out & Anger
Increased Self-Confidence

A Mom’s Review of Her Teen’s Therapy Experience

“Being a teenage girl is hard! Being a parent of a teenage girl is hard! I would say my teenage daughter is well-rounded, happy, and responsible, but there is still SO much learning and emotion that goes into being a teenager. As a mother, I have tried helping to navigate some of the emotions and vital growth that occur during those teenage years, but oftentimes, I found I didn’t have all the answers or tools to help. So we turned to Chrissy who came highly recommended. She has been AMAZING to work with and has given my daughter so many tools that have helped her in her journey into becoming an adult. She loves having someone to talk to that isn’t a family member and I love her having someone to talk to that is an expert on the things I am not! My daughter has grown in her self confidence, ability to manage friends, big emotions, jealousy, perfectionism, and much more. Chrissy is young and fun and relates so well to girls this age.

My daughter has expressed that she didn’t think she needed a therapist but is so glad she has one! I am now a believer that every teenager can benefit from counseling no matter your circumstances. I am so grateful we have put the time and money into helping our daughter learn to cope with all the world throws at her now and know how valuable it will be for her to have the tools she needs to function successfully in the future.”

Hi, I’m Leslie Frederick.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have long had a passion for helping and serving others.

I began my career as a social worker for a local hospice.  I found great purpose in helping families navigate the unpredictable twists and turns that undoubtedly come along with the end of life for their loved ones.  After many years in hospice, I transitioned to a medical social work position in a hospital, which then led me to a Clinical Social Work Intern position in an inpatient psych hospital.  During this time, I enjoyed working with a range of individuals and families.  The vast array of cases I encountered in the hospital allowed me to gain the experience and skills needed to serve a multitude of clients.  I enjoy working with clients of all ages and believe in meeting a client where they are at in order to tailor treatment to meet their individualized needs and work towards their specific goals.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Northern Arizona University and a Masters in Social Work from UNLV. I am originally from Northwest Indiana and have lived in Las Vegas for over ten years with my husband and our three children. We love living out west and enjoy spending time traveling and exploring our neighboring states.

Hi, I’m Kim Boschee.

I’ve been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 2005. Originally from the Midwest, I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology/English Literature at Illinois Wesleyan University and then finished my graduate studies in Counseling Psychology at Indiana University. I moved to Las Vegas in 2002 to complete my graduate internship, and liked it here so much, I decided to stay!

Whether you are feeling anxious, depressed, or overwhelmed, therapy is a transformative way to safely sort through these emotions. Together, we will create an action plan to promote a sense of empowerment in your life, generating improved well-being as well as sustainable changes. If doing less isn’t an option, then let’s do better.

I love working with couples, families, individuals, and adolescents from the lenses of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Functional Family Therapy (FFT), and the Gottman Method. My career began in the government sector and has included both agency and nonprofit arenas. Currently, I work with clients in a variety of stressful, demanding career fields including medicine/healthcare, business leadership, academia, and financial planning.

Outside of the office, you’ll find me in the mountains or on the golf course; I’ve been a member of Red Rock Search and Rescue since 2020 and am the (very proud!) mom to a competitive junior golfer. I believe in a holistic approach to life and work to weave this mindset in all areas of my life.
