Are you the parent of a teen and often find yourself thinking “What is going on with my son/daughter?” Is your stress or worry meter about to blow? This time of life is likely full of a wide array of thoughts and feelings, including confusion, worry and fear. It can be difficult to remember that under the roller coaster of emotions or frequent arguments, the great kid you used to know is still underneath. Many teens and their families come to counseling with therapists like myself, and are able to successfully navigate through this time in safe and fulfilling ways.
As a therapist I have come to appreciate work with teenagers and young adults, and with many clients this includes family counseling, where parents or caregivers participate some of the time. As a parent you likely want to maximize the healthy and productive time your teenager has, while minimizing dangerous or scary behavior. I understand that the teenage brain can throw a wrench in these goals, and I have had some success with navigating the rough waters.
If you are a concerned parent experiencing some worry or confusion, I think I can help. Fill out the brief contact form or simply give me a call at (954)204-4123, so we can begin our valuable work together.
