"Creating a successful family is the greatest challenge any of us face. So often when our kids enter the teenage years, the dynamics suddenly change. The son or daughter who used to be a part of the family can seem like a different person. The old activities, conversations and rules are different and then journey of raising a teenage begins. As a therapist, high school teacher, and group leader, I have watched adolescents, their parents, and couples go through times of great struggle and come out the other side with a clearer sense of who they are in the world ."
