Being a teenage girl is challenging. Besides her body changing, her peers are changing too. Middle school friends have changed. And, high school friends can be fun and new, but filled with drama. As a teenage female, depression, body image issues, and eating disorders can surface. And, these are a cry for help. Furthermore, teenage girls have trouble talking about their feelings.
Support For Teenage Girls Who Have Just Moved
Additionally, moving to a new place can cause negative behaviors. Moving to a new town, being uprooted, and then having to make new friends can be scary. And, the new school is another change. Moving to a new place with out the support of a trusted therapist can be a major setback developmentally. In her old town, your teen felt confident socially and had a good group of peers. Then, she has moved and is thrown into a new mix of academics and peers, and overwhelming, insecure feelings. She used to be around people who knew her daily, so that comfort was already in place.
How Moving Impacts Teenage Girls
As a result of having to move, your teenage girl may now be self-harming and have developed food issues. Moreover, when your teenage daughter doesn’t have control over much in her life, she may turn to restricting food, being picky when eating, or overeating. Your teenage daughter seems less interested in being social and is isolating more. Navigating social situations takes positive coping skills and a healthy level of self-confidence. And, for teens who are less social, who are more introverted and quiet, moving can be really hard emotionally. She is feeling judged for being new and now is excluded. She is really struggling with self-esteem, self-confidence, and loving herself. And, finding the right support in therapy can be a difficult process itself.
How To Get Started?
At Wisdom Within Counseling in Niantic, your depressed teen and I meet one on one. After the initial session, together we decide if individual counseling or the teen girl group together are the best options.
