I see adolescents alone for many reasons – depression, anxiety, eating concerns, self-harm, changes in family – divorce – parental conflict – blended families
Family counseling – parental support, sessions with teen and parent(s) What are concerns – what are options – Help teens speak up in healthy ways, to gain strength to share, to figure out how to be themselves, meet their needs – within the family and outside in healthy relationships. Encourage positive steps/ activities. Parents have the chance to talk about their concerns and emotions – wanting the best for your child, getting support, insight, understanding your teen more. These and other family/close relationships get help and support to create healthy and happier people and more successful relationships that continue to grow.
