Teens and young adults……….
Teen years can be challenging for both parents and teens. These years can be an especially confusing and difficult time for teens – often becoming a lonely time as teens struggle with this crossroad in their lives. Parents may feel like they are losing control over their teen and perhaps see their teen as pulling away from the family.
Teens frequently feel life is just too hard as they continue to present as if they are “OK” while falling apart inside yet wanting to appear as if they’re handling things just fine. They often withdraw, quietly slipping away.
I can help...
Teen years are often overwhelming because it is a time of struggle to cross the bridge between childhood to adulthood. It’s very common for issues around body image, self-esteem, school, peers, and family to appear. The desire for independence and the pull to remain a kid can create conflicts that affect all areas of life. Teens need someone they can trust – someone who understands where they are and can help them take the next step in their journey.
Parents need someone they can trust, too ~ someone who knows how to help them, and their teen navigate this period successfully. I have helped many teens find a comfortable place where they can spread their wings while maintaining a stable relationship with their friends and family.
