Being a teenager is by far one of the hardest times in an individuals life. There are so many competing responsibilities; school, homework, extracurricular activities, family time and a social life. Teens typically don’t have as many internal resources to pull from when the pressure mounts.
I spealized in supporting teens who are struggling with:
- School bullying and social isolation
- Low self-esteem and confidence issues
- Parent/teen relationship conflicts
I can help your teen learn and implement coping skills and communication strategies to deal with the stressors of life. I know how important it is to build a trusting, therapeutic relationship with your teen. Art therapy is a great way for me as a collaborator to connect with your teen and for us to work together to build on their strengths.
I can also work with you and your teen together to help heal and strengthen your relationship. We can explore the hopes that both you and your teen have, and employ specific, powerful strategies to enhance your parent/child communication and connection and set your teen up for future success.
If your teen is struggling with anxiety, sadness, isolation or dealing with identity isssues, contact me to see how we together can help them find relief.
