Sometimes when you are a parent looking for a therapist for your child , your child may be resistant to being "sent" to counseling.
I specialize in working with adolescents and adults who are experiencing challenges in their lives - including school or work performance, relationships with family and friends, or self-esteem. As a parent you might notice your child withdrawing, not interacting as usual with friends and family, getting into more fights or trouble, or struggling with self-confidence. Sleeping and eating habits and other daily routines may be affected as well. When you feel as though you don't know what else to do, reaching out and getting help through counseling can be the best alternative.

It is heartbreaking to see your child struggle and not know how to help them. Most parents who call me have tried every tool they have to help their children with little or no result. you might feel alone in your experience, feel guilt and shame for not being able to help your child or even for losing your own temper if you have an intense high need child . Perhaps your child is struggling in school, and you are dreading the next phone call to address the latest issues, or feel exhausted trying to go through the daily function without meltdowns, or worrying about your teen’s emotional state, lack of communication,or defiant behavior

Change can be difficult, seeking help harder, but stagnation harder. Do you find yourself in the same relationship over and over? Through therapy you can learn and understand why that has been happening and work towards developing healthier, more fulfilling relationships. Middle school and high school can be some of the most difficult years for many people. There are changes in your body, your hormones, and your interests change. People change, and friendships change. Therapy for children & teens usually works best if they want it, and in session, they direct it.
