Are you struggling to understand your teen but feel like a horrible parent? You are exhausted. You look at your teen and feel guilty. The constant doubt plays in your head “what did I miss? Where did I go wrong? What more could I do? Was I too strict or not strict enough?” You feel like you’re on an emotional roller coaster trying to “fix” this problem. But, no matter what you do, you can’t find a way to reach your teen and neither of you understand each other. Ultimately, you feel drained, and believe you are the worse mother or father in the world. You aren’t sure whether you are looking for teen therapy or whether this is a normal part of raising a teen.
You look at this person whom you have raised all these years and you don’t know them anymore. Physically, they are more mature, independent, and often times bigger than you but they still seem clueless. They appear to need you emotionally but are pushing you away for no apparent reason?
They are secretive, quiet and honestly you feel like you have to walk on eggshells all the time with how moody they can be. You are at the end of your rope, ready to throw your hands in the air to surrender. You’ve tried everything you can and you are now at a loss.
But there is hope…
We help parents who are on the brink of giving up on fixing the mess in their home. We start with helping you know that this is bigger than you. Your teen is going through more than just normal teen stuff. Your teen will learn to express themselves and you will learn how to respond in a way that truly helps them.
If you are ready to find some relief, call us….
We help teen-agers dealing with behavioral issues, anxiety, new transitions, gender identity issues, sexuality, bullying, trauma, depression, sadness, low self-esteem, divorce, grief, loss, shyness, shame, guilt, and more
