The evolving challenges of raising children involve the addition of new technology and an ever-increasing pressure to succeed. Keeping on top of these dynamics can at best overwhelm and at worst alienate those in even the most healthy families. Teens pass through a stage of fluctuating hormonal levels, while negotiating burgeoning independence, and navigating the waters of social media along with peer pressure. Meanwhile parents are dealing with keeping a household afloat, managing the family and their careers, while often having aging parents and/or dealing with grief over their loss. When teens and parents need a little help or mental health challenges require more effort for daily living than they should, learning new coping skills with or without medication can make a difference. Discovering what influences behaviors and learning ways to express what needs to be said can empower parents and their children to find more happiness and fulfillment in life. Sorting through these challenges and developing coping techniques that help organize and balance communication is my goal with all families and individuals.

Parents: Do you ever feel everything you say and do is wrong? Struggle with unpredictable moods in your teenager? Sometimes just a small adjustment can influence greater ease in everyday interactions. Illuminating each other’s perspective in a way that can be heard contributes to the release of tension and stress that would otherwise result in arguments. I work with parents and children together, and individually with the goal of coming together again with clearer boundaries and hierarchies to influence optimal family functioning.

As a parent of grown children I have personally and professionally experienced the adolescent years of hundreds of youth. It is my passion to help ease the experience for families while they struggle with normal life cycles and non-normative events. An increased awareness during these years can influence closer family bonds and a more satisfying relationship, as children become adults. If you are looking for a little help during these years please contact me and together we will come up with a plan that best suits your family.
