What to Expect

You’d like to be a family who laughs together and the parents your teen turns to for advice.


Family therapy can help. The problem is that your child has trouble trusting you with the decisions that are most important, which makes you feel like they don’t think, don’t care, and don’t want your input. The opposite is true, they need you more than ever and they wish they didn’t. I understand the push and pull that is required between parents and teens during this growth and transition time.  I serve as an intermediary to help them communicate their needs effectively and help you hear the needs and respond in a way that encourages continued connection and communication.

How It Works

We all meet together, then we take turns meeting with teen, meeting with parents, and meeting together again. So we all build skills to work better together so you can stop punishing, lecturing, and yelling at your teen and start connecting and trusting them, and they can begin to feel empowered and able to trust you with the important decisions they are facing.
