Mark Beauregard​, MA, RDT-BCT, LCAT

I have helped teens with:

  • ADHD
  • Behavior problems at home and school
  • ​Coping with foster care
  • Depression and suicidal thoughts
  • Divorce transition and adjustment
  • ​Family tensions and power struggles
  • Gender and sexual orientation identity
  • Mood Disorders (Depression, Bipolar Disorder, etc.)
  • Poor social skills and relationship building
  • Poor academic performance
  • Risky sexual behavior
  • Substance use and abuse


I understand the developmental complexities  and nuances of this age group. I provide teenagers with a nonjudgmental  and safe space to explore identity issues and deal with personal and social  conflicts. I help them express their feelings, ambivalence and confusion  regarding their future and encourage them to try on various roles until they find the ones that fit best.

The teen years can be a tumultuous time, filled with numerous emotions and behaviors that adults struggle to understand and connect with. Teenagers want to meet with someone who is interacts with them like a real person, someone they can be comfortable with. By allowing a teenager a separate, confidential space to work through their feelings, decision making, and relationships with parents, peers and their future, the trajectory of their lives and self-image can be significantly improved.
