Parents & Teen/Child Therapy
“How do I change my child’s or teen’s behavior and gain back their respect?”
- Sadness or anxiety?
- Difficulty making friends?
- Disobeying the house rules?
- Back talk and disrespect?
- Peer pressure and risky behaviors (drugs, alcohol, sex, running away)?
- Thoughts or behaviors regarding self harm?
- Anger or depression?
- Behavioral struggles in school with peers and teachers?
- Poor communication skills with you or other family members?
If you answered “YES” to any of the above, it’s time to consider parent and child counseling and feel better in your relationship.
Children struggle with numerous internal and external issues that stem from their families, school life, friendships and own mental health. We find that parents hurt when their child or teen is not succeeding. As a result, we specialize in working with the whole family, intermittently meeting with parents separately, as well as the children or teens. For parents, raising any child or teenager is truly a lesson in patience, understanding, some negotiation and frustration tolerance. This process can be quite overwhelming at times, resulting in feeling inadequate, as though you are failing as parents because you have tried everything without much consistent success. Let our child and teen experts bring a neutral presence into the mix and help you and your family find more happiness. Our goal is to help your family create a more loving relationship and give you a sense of peace, so everyone can feel better and more connected. Parent and Child/Teen Counseling provides an opportunity to increase communication skills and create a better understanding of expectations for each family member. More importantly, your child or teen will have their own opportunities to work with our experienced counselors and learn to get their feelings “heard” by using their voice with parents in a productive and respectful manner. Take the next step for you and your child’s or teen’s happiness…
