I specialize in adolescent and family therapy, including step/blended families, single parent, same sex, and adopting families. All parents want their kids to be safe, self confident and successful. However, the world is becoming ever more complex, challenging and, indeed, dangerous. Traditional values have fallen away. Rules for parenting are changing as fast as the latest text message.
I have 25 years of experience in helping families navigate a multitude of obstacles including substance abuse, depression, school failure, sexual acting out, and internet/gaming abuse. As a supervisor of social workers for the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services I’ve worked with hundreds of adolescents and their families to make the changes necessary to lead satisfying, productive lives. Through therapeutic conversations in a safe and secure environment, we can engage in the process of healing, change, and recovery.
You can also join our Workshop/Support Group for parents of adolescents.
