The adolescent years from ages eleven through the twenties can be overwhelming and confusing for children and parents. The teen needs his or her parents, and yet rejects them in a way that can seem violent and can feel terrifying and hurtful to parents. Psychotherapy can help preserve parent-child relationships by providing support and creating a safe, confidential environment for teens to express themselves. I help parents get to know their teen better, and adjust to his or her evolving needs. It can also be helpful for parents to set up regular sessions with a separate provider for ongoing parent work. In cases of significant conflict, this kind of parent consultation can be key to the adolescent's success. I consult with a network of experienced colleagues to form a treatment team tailored to the needs of your family.
