Working with teens

Working therapeutically with teens requires a combination of flexibility, ingenuity and gravitas. We have a passion for relating to and aiding adolescents in their quest to define themselves during the pivotal preteen and teen years.

Sometimes, kids lose their way and get stuck. Calling in a neutral party to assist in creating a new perspective helps.

Treating adolescents is an art form, requiring unique sensitivity to the delicate life stage, appropriate use of irreverence, and boundaries clear enough to simultaneously advocate for the child while supporting the adult caregivers and their expressed limits. We have built a word of mouth following from successes working with preteens and teens, whose families appreciate our candor and quick results.

We have years of experience establishing rapport with teens, and bringing adolescents from social isolation and depression to a positive, healthy self-image and improved family and peer relationships.
