When you are seeking adolescent therapy services, we know it is because adolescence is a critical transition point in your teen's life trajectory.
You might be seeking adolescent therapy because a disconnection has occurred. Usually that disconnection occurred because of a disruption in the delicate balance that needs to be reached. The balance is between you, as a parent, letting go in a way that allows your teenager to explore and learn in the world. It means letting your teenager make some mistakes, have the opportunity to develop an individual identity AND you upholding important limits that keep your teenager safe. This is hard work.
Simultaneously, your teenager has to demonstrate a sense of responsibility with their independence. That helps you trust your teenager and feel comfortable with allowing some freedom.
We are able to help families find a way to balance the important needs both you and your teenager have during this time.
Give us a call at 310-218-7518 or fill out a contact form. We would love to hear from you and offer our support.
