Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Navigating the teen and college years can be as painful and confusing for you as a parent as it is for your child. For you it may mean worry and waking up at night wondering what happened to the relationship you once enjoyed with your child. You see your child shutting down with you and cutting off friendships. He seems angry, "bored," and aimless. At best, making responsible decisions, managing freedom, and managing her own emotions seems to be inconsistent. You don't know what is going on with your teen and you just don't know what to do. Have you tried talking but only end up with power struggles, nasty arguments, or hurt feelings? It may be that your child's difficulties are too embarrassing, they may be afraid of your reaction or opinion, or afraid to discuss difficult emotions. Yet, young adults need adults for guidance and support. For over ten years I have worked with teens and young adults by fostering respect, acceptance, and genuineness so that we can address challenging issues. I believe I can help build renewed trust and confidence in your child and hope for you as a parent. Call me at 818.364.5646.
