Why I can Help!

Safe Communication

1“He doesn’t listen to me.”  This is a common statement that parents make.  Many times your teen will listen to someone else.  Having a counselor can open the lines of communication with your teen.  Teens want to talk about the issues that they are facing, but only if they feel safe.  A counselor can provide a safe environment for him to have an open and honest dialogue about his daily challenges.

Good Role Model

2 Outside of their parents, teens are not seeing the right thing done by the right people.  They are taking in the negative values of their role models as they see them portrayed in the media.  A counselor can act as a positive role model for her by setting a good example themselves.  Your teen wants to do the right thing, if they understand why its the right thing.  A counselor can help support the boundaries set by you, and help them understand why it is important.

Experienced

3  From my experience working with teenagers, I have come to understand  the key elements of  a healthy Parent/Child relationship.   I have found that teenagers want and need to take an interest in something while establishing independence.  They want their parents to show an interest in what they are thinking and doing.  And although they do not always express it, they truly desire and can accept reasonable limits put on them.

I Care About You & Your Teen

4 I care about your situation and want to hear about what is going on in your life and the life of your teen.  If your teen is having problems, I’d like to share with you how I can help  your teen.  If your relationship with your teen is not how you would like it to be, I’d like tell you how I can help facilitate this relationship so that you and your teen can have better communication!  Call or email today to find out more or to set up your initial consultation.  I look forward to meeting you.
