Adolescent / Parenting Therapy
Maybe parenting issues are causing too much conflict in the family. You hate to see your child struggling emotionally and you don’t know how to help. These parenting years are so challenging and you don’t feel like a good enough parent. You lose your cool way more than you would like.
You want to be the best parent you can be and want to navigate the challenging school age and teen years effectively - and without too much drama or trauma to your family.
Or your teenager is especially anxious or depressed and needs to talk to someone. Maybe they need help to deal with an unexpected (or expected) change, or loss or breakup in the family.
I can work with you around parenting issues, or with your teen individually, and help your family to have more harmony. Enjoy more of your times together as a family. Learn to talk to your kids so they listen and listen so they talk. Discover ways to move through conflict in your family more easily and feel like a better parent. Feel more balanced and in control of your emotions as you parent. See your teenager feeling better about him or herself and handling their life better.
I can meet with you (or your teen) weekly or biweekly to discuss your concerns, offload some of the stress you’re dealing with, offer new perspectives about how to stay connected to your child, and teach mindfulness skills to lower your anxiety and sense of overwhelm.
It’s not easy managing the challenges in your family relationships but the good news is that it is possible to feel better and get along better. I have the experience to help you or your adolescent.
