Parenting an adolescent is life-changing. And complicated. Exclamation Point.
As the adolescent is transitioning into their older, more independent self, the parent too must go through a transition. Transitions are messy. I help parents move through the messiness.
I am not a parent of adolescents. I am a therapist who understands adolescents. I find incredible joy in helping both the parent(s) and adolescent continue to build their relationship and foster growth.
I help parents navigate such experiences as:
balancing limits/boundary setting and providing space for independence
adolescent substance use
gender and/or sexually diverse (LGBTQ+) teens
anxiety (of the parent and/or teen)
depression (of the parent and/or teen)
sexually active teens
In addition to the work in session with parents, I often direct parents to helpful resources. You can find my current list of recommended books/resources HERE.
Questions or would like to set up a phone consultation with me?
