Helping teens to thrive.
Does your teenager feel like a stranger to you? Has there been more conflict in your home now that your child is a teen? Does your teen struggle with peer pressure? Is your teen an overachiever or underachiever, struggling with stress? The teen years are a time of significant change and growth that can feel like an internal storm to your teen. For the family it can feel like a complete stranger is living in the house! Teens need support and space at the same time. They need to know they have guidance and that they have independence and capability to make some of their own decisions. These messages can feel contradictory and confusing at times, but teen counseling can help.
