It is a hard thing for an individual, couple, or family to admit that they may need help dealing with an aspect of their life. It’s even harder to approach someone outside of your friends or family for help. Let me offer you a professional and unbiased hand. You’ll be surprised at how much an outside perspective can truly help.
In conjunction with adolescent counseling, I also offer family counseling to give adolescents practice in expressing themselves effectively with parents and siblings. This helps ensure that what the adolescent learns in session is applied at home. It also gives all the family members an opportunity to express their concerns and work through issues with each other in a safe environment. This builds the framework for future negotiation and compromise.
