Are you a parent who is worried about your child or teen?  You know something is bothering them, but they refuse to open up. You're worried that they are not coping well with the stress of school, peers, or adjusting to a recent divorce or blended family.  Maybe they have been self-harming or had thoughts of suicide. You want to find a counselor they can trust and open up with, learn how to handle their emotions, and have healthier relationships with you and others.  As  parents, we get it.  Our kids are growing up in a different world than we did and it can be scary when we want to protect them and hope that they make healthy choices.  We find that balance between being able to build a trusting relationship with children and teens, while providing support and guidance for their parents. 

When your child is in pain, you feel their pain too.  You want to make it better for them but aren't sure how.  Even with the best parent-child relationships, having an outside professional who can provide a safe space and build a connection with your child or teen can help. We see children and teens for individual and family therapy.  Play therapy tools and interactive games are used to help build relationships and open up conversations.  Children and teens that we see are often struggling with family and peer issues, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, or self-harm.  As Marriage and Family Therapists, our approach always welcomes and involves parents and caregivers so that skills learned in session can be carried over to the home.   We understand that parents may need support too and some new ways to communicate with their child or teen especially.  If you're ready to see your child or teen feeling better contact us today so we can get started.
