Parenting Teens

Do you wish there was more respect and understanding
between the two of you?

 

Do you feel helpless and left out,
unable to connect with your teen?

 

Are you worried about their behavior choices?

I was at my wits end and didn't know what to do. I was surprised at how quickly things changed."​ 

~ father of teenager

Adolescents are bombarded with many transition issues. There are many more responsibilities and choices to be made which can leave teens overwhelmed and scared.

It can be "easier" to reject these expectations than face the feeling of failure (act as if they don't care, school failure, defiance, numbing behaviors like high drama and partying).



Teens need strong guidance and genuine encouragement to establish healthy boundaries.

At a time when there are many outside influences, teens gain confidence and stability when they are able to get some inner navigation of those stormy waters within. This often calms symptoms of ADHD/ADD, Anxiety, Depression, Explosive Anger, and Power Struggles.

I can support your teens with coping skills
to decrease their overall stress and
improve their communication skills.



Don't delay,
make an appointment for your teen today.
