I have been
working with youth and teens in various settings since 1995. Going
through the teen years can be a challenging time for everyone in the family.
It can be a time of intense self-doubt as well as self-discovery for youth.
It's an important developmental phase, and sometimes teens need an adult
who doesn't judge or want something from them to help them through this
difficult time. New research indicates
that the adolescent brain is going through significant changes during this
developmental period. These changes can
affect the teen’s connection with family members as well as their craving for
risk taking. However, this time can be
one of the most creative and productive times in a teen’s life if they learn to
channel their energy in a positive direction.
Therapy can help teens deal with the things that get in the way of
self-respect and healthy choices.
