The connection between your teen and her therapist is vital to progress. I meet teens where they are and provide them with a safe space. I enjoy working with teens who are struggling at home, school, or with their peers. In separate one-on one sessions with you and your teen, we will identify the issues that cause conflict in your family and work to resolve them. I will support you in strengthening your communication and conflict resolution skills together.
I often hear parents say, “I know my teen needs therapy, but I do not have a clue how to get her there.” Therapy doesn’t need to be reserved for life-altering events. Meeting with a therapist is a proactive way to prevent minor issues from turning into major problems. Sometimes an outside perspective is all you need to support the tools you already have.
Family therapy is cost-efficient and often more time-efficient than individual therapy. It helps more people more quickly and can promote significant change. An outside perspective from someone trained in family systems is essential. We'll work together to develop a better understanding of how your family functions and learn new ways to handle conflict, communicate and relate to each other in a healthy way.
