Does your teen seem to be on edge all the time? Maybe they seem more irritable than your friends teenagers. Are they freaking out over every little thing and making impulsive decisions that you know they should know better. Is your teen shutting out friends and family and coming home to run straight to bed and sleep the day away? Are most days spent walking on eggshells just to keep the peace in your home?
You may be worried about your teen’s safety and afraid they are acting out sexually or experimenting with drugs or alcohol to cope with life?
Therapy can help!
Connecting with your teen is what is most important! I use different methods to take the pressure off of them so they are not trying to fit into what they think therapy is. Once they develop trust, they can be open and honest and really work through issues instead of relying on friends or trying to figure it out on their own.
Parenting teens is hard work, and I’m here to be a support for YOU. Maybe you just need someone to talk to about your teen’s issues. You may be feeling overwhelmed and at a loss of how to handle their anxiety or depression. I offer Parent Coaching individually to teach you better ways to help your teen through their struggles.
We will focus on areas that include: how you communicate with your teen; how your teen communicates with you vs how you want your teen to communicate; self care for yourself as you deal with the stress of parenting a teen; and encouragement for doing your job as a parent and working hard to overcome this phase in life.
I am also offering Parent Coaching Groups where you can share your experience in a community of other parents of teens.
