Adolescent / Family Therapy

I find it exciting to work with adolescents and their families. We work together to turn an intense negative drive into a positive direction, which is often challenging but always rewarding.

I meet parents who are full of anger and resentment toward their teen because of past indiscretions. I love to help them understand that their child is hurting and to see them let go of all of the anger and become empowered by learning new ways to relate to their child. A teen’s classic line is “they just don’t understand me” and it is through therapy that the teen can help parents understand them; also the parents can teach the teenager to understand their desires and fears.
