Is your preteen or teenager going through a hard time and you feel worried sick, frustrated, angry, powerless to do anything to help?
Is your child's behavior at the center of family or marital conflicts?
Is your teen/adolescent struggling with school achievement, motivation, connecting with peers, bullying others, or being bullied?
Does their mood or anxiety seem like a minefield you're failing to navigate successfully?
If you're finding it difficult to connect and communicate with your teen, then you're not alone. The mix of uncertainty and anticipation of this stage of life can be really overwhelming and scary.
Teens today face so much more pressure during their developmental stages than ever before and issues like low self-esteem, depression, eating disorders and substance abuse need to be addressed, not ignored or swept under the rug. Avoiding real problems can have an unhealthy impact on your teen’s ability to cope with daily life and future success. These emotional strains affecting your teen often result in the need for additional support and counseling.
We specialize in helping preteens/teens/young adults work through the issues inhibiting them from living their lives to the fullest.
