Adolescence is a time of development and growth. This period can create increased stress within the family unit and lead to challenges for parents including testing of boundaries, acting out behavior, and communication issues.
Therapy can help adolescents better cope with and express emotions which lead to more healthy behavior patterns and communication skills. Focus is placed on strategies that will set a foundation for how stressors and emotions are managed in the future and create improved interaction within the family.
Our therapists work to engage adolescents and families in treatment by building rapport and placing attention on developing a strong therapeutic relationship. We focus on creating an environment that fosters emotional support and offers guidance in conflict resolution while establishing new ways of interacting.
