Parenting and Youth

You've read the books, talked with friends and still, balancing the need for individual growth, self expression, social skills, emotional and behavioral issues with the need to do more than just make it through the day is a constant challenge.  With tight schedules and tough demands, I offer a tiny oasis of hope and support to help you develop skills, collaborate, and form a framework on which you and the whole family can be empowered to make each day better. 

Sometimes youth and adolescents need their own space to work on critical issues they may not be able to process elsewhere.  Helping them thrive at these critical stages establishes how they will regard, process and strategize for the rest of their lives.  My experience with youth and adolescents includes establishing treatment and action plans that provide a contininuum of support that models and positively reinforces the strength and resiliency needed to build a happy, successful life.

It's not only children who grow.  Parents do too.  As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours.  I can't tell my children to reach for the sun.  All I can do is reach for it, myself.
