"My specialty is working with teens and young adults aged 16-26. I focus on family work, 1:1 and groups. Learning to communicate is the key to building and resetting relationships. Sometimes we are not sure there is a big enough problem to warrant help. Problems of any size are appropriate to reach out for help, including rule breaking, inconsistent parenting, lying, inability to launch, transitional issues of college or turning 18. None of this is easy to handle and every person is different. We will figure out together what makes sense for you or your family member. "
