A new approach can make all the difference.
Your teen’s mood and behavior have been worrisome for quite some time. You’re seeing more tears, more moodiness, and you’re not talking as much. You’re not getting along like the way you use to and that concerns you.
You’ve tried a variety of approaches but nothing seems to work.
You’re thinking “Do I give her more space or push her to talk? Maybe I should give her more freedom? Or set more limits?”
I get it. You want a relationship with your teen minus the shutdowns, the attitude, the anger.
You want support in turning this relationship around.
Your teen needs you to set those limits, show your love, and give her guidance. She wants you in her life, she just has a hard way of showing it.
There is hope.
I can help your teen learn how to:
- Boost confidence and self-esteem
- Increase self-control
- Develop coping skills to manage stress
- Promote healthy expression of emotion
- Cultivate empathy and respect for self and others
- Access strengths to enhance problem solving skills
Your teen is growing up and becoming independent. I will also provide you with targeted strategies that you can put into effect at home so you can start seeing some positive change. These strategies will support your continuing work on guiding your teen to making good decisions, as well as encouraging skills that will support your teen’s success as she transitions to young adulthood.
“My teen has been to therapy before and it didn’t work.”
I hear you.
Therapy with teens is highly specialized and it takes a therapist trained in working with teenagers to work efficiently with your teenager.
If your teen is treatment-resistant, I employ a variety of techniques to connect with your teen without it feeling forced.
And if this is your teen’s first experience with therapy, that’s great too. For a first time experience, therapy can feel awkward or even intrusive. I can help support your teen so she can have a comfortable experience and change can start to happen.
You and your teen deserve to see progress. Schedule a consultation today. I’d love to have a discussion about how I can help.
